Since the release of my book, Wait, How Do I Write This Email?, a variety of audiences have incorporated the text into the work they do. A few of the settings:
- Career service centers on several college campuses (West Virginia University)
- Military classrooms at sites like the Pentagon and Quantico
- Workforce development programs
- Business incubators/startup hubs
Now, I can add another group to the list: a high school preparatory program for students who are the first in their families to attend college. On Tuesday, June 7, 40 seniors from Virginia Beach high schools completed the Spartan Prep Academy, a partnership between the school system and Norfolk State University that “provides opportunities for participants to succeed in pre-college performance, and ultimately in higher education pursuits.”
Many of the students will attend Norfolk State as well as schools like Old Dominion University, Clemson, Virginia Commonwealth University, Howard University, George Mason University and Virginia State University.
“We think Wait, How Do I Write This Email? is the perfect gift for our graduates as they head off to college and beyond,” said Nikki Thornton, student support specialist with Virginia Beach City Public Schools. “We know the book will help them apply for internships and jobs with confidence. And we’re excited to see what they accomplish in their lives!”
I love to learn about new audiences that have adopted my book. It shows the versatility of the product and allows me to impact people at various stages of their education and careers.
Happy Friday, everyone!
