At the end of September, Sideline Pass hosted its first Scholars Dinner at Rebellion Urban Kitchen to encourage 13 young women to continue their education after high school as well as to guide them on how to pursue and finance that goal.
Mentors such as Colleen Snyder (executive network TV producer), Alanah Odom Hebert (Counsel, Louisiana Supreme Court), Dr. Kate Sullivan (OBGYN), Robin Barnes (entertainer & small business owner) and Coach Terri Sisk (Tulane Tennis) shared their challenges and advice on how to take the next step in the educational process.
Janie Glade shared an etiquette lesson with the group that focused on manners at the dining table, interview skills and appropriate follow up after interviews and social gatherings.
The consultants at the Sports Trainer Index offered advice on where to find funding, as well as support for entrance applications and essays.
The Sideline Pass ladies were treated to a generous 4-course meal where they could practice their new etiquette skills, courtesy of Rebellion Urban Kitchen and owner Seung Hong. Bella Blooms, Firefly Ambiance and Wink Design & Events created a magical atmosphere for the evening. Michael Dyle Films and Black & Geauxld Photography captured the evening, including professional head shots for the ladies to use during the application process.
Thank you ladies, mentors and sponsors for a spectacular evening!
