“CHILDREN DON’T KNOW REALLY WHAT THEY WANT TO DO. A LOT OF THAT HAS TO DO WITH THE FACT THAT THEY’RE NOT EXPOSED TO DIFFERENT THINGS. SO, MAYBE YOUR PASSION IS GOING TO BE WORKING IN RADIOLOGY, BUT IF YOU’VE NEVER EVEN SEEN WHAT AN X-RAY LOOKS LIKE OR HOW YOU GO ABOUT TAKING ON. IT’S HARD TO REALLY KNOW IF THAT’S SOMETHING YOU’D REALLY BE INTERESTED IN.”
MEDICAL CENTER HOSPITAL AND ODESSA COLLEGE HAVE BEEN TRAINING A STAFF OF 65 PEOPLE AND PREPARING THE STAFF TO APPROPRATELY GO INTO THE SCHOOL SYSTEM.
(RICK NAPPER, CEO/PRESIDENT-MEDICAL CENTER HOSPITAL)
“WHAT WE HAVE TO DO AS MEDICAL CENTER IS TO GO INTO THESE SCHOOLS, FIRST OF ALL, EXPLORE THAT TALENT AND FIND OUT WHERE THAT TALENT IS. AND THEN, SECOND OF ALL, WE HAVE TO HELP THEM UNDERSTAND THEIR TALENT AND BRING IT TO THE FOREFRONT. THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE TRYING TO INFLUENCE OUR CHILDREN, MANY OF THEM IN A NEGATIVE WAY; WE HAVE TO COUNTER THAT WITH A POSITIVE OF LETTING THEM KNOW WHO THEY ARE AND BUILD THEIR SELF-ESTEEM AROUND THEIR ABILITIES OF WHAT THEY CAN BE AND WHAT THEIR ABILITIES ARE.”
ODESSA COLLEGE AND MEDICAL CENTER HOSPITAL ARE EXCITED THAT THE COMMUNITY AND COMMUNITY LEADERS ARE ENGAGING IN THE BETTERMENT OF THE EDUCATION SYSTEM AND IMPACT IT WILL HAVE IN THE FUTURE OF THE PERMIAN BASIN.
