Arthrex Employees Mentor the Community's Future Leaders
Each summer, a number of our employees serve as ambassadors for Arthrex by hosting high school students for a one-day job shadowing experiences. These students, who represent our future workforce, are provided the opportunity to visit Arthrex, learn more about various career fields and the opportunities that await them right here in this community.
Recently, Arthroplasty Engineering Manager Scott Sherman and Manufacturing Suture Engineer Maya Alfonso volunteered their time to host a bright Youth Leadership Collier participant named Rachael Lyberg. She shared the following about her experience:
"I had the amazing opportunity to attend the Arthrex Biomedical Engineering shadow program. Throughout the morning, I had the privilege to shadow very knowledgeable employees from the manufacturing facility and the Arthroplasty Departments. The Arthrex Corporation is world renowned for its mission statement: Helping surgeons treat their patients better. As I toured the various facilities, the veracity in the mission statement was clear. Thank you so much for this opportunity; I really enjoyed the experience and all the new information I acquired.”
The Leadership Collier Foundation’s mission is to build a broad-based network of community leaders who enhance their leadership abilities and skills through continuing education, shared perspectives and community involvement in order to enable them to work toward solutions in the public interest. The foundation accomplishes this through its Leadership Collier, Growing Associates in Naples (GAIN) and Youth Leadership Collier programs. Scott Sherman is a 2014 Leadership Collier graduate and Maya is a recent 2015 GAIN graduate.
Amanda Beights, vice president of the Leadership Collier Foundation shared, “Incredible! This experience could not have been more perfect, in my opinion: a Leadership Collier, GAIN, and Youth Leadership Collier graduate all working together for a brighter future! We are so thankful Scott and Maya!
