Now in its 6rd year, the Pelham Civic Association’s Career Workshop Series - in conjunction with Pelham Memorial High School Counseling Department - hosted a packed room of inquisitive high school students in Alumni Hall, interested in finding out more about the career paths in the legal profession. Pelham Civic Career Workshop Chair (and originator of the program) Michael Clain stated, “We are very fortunate to have talented volunteers who are professionals in the field to share their expertise and experience with the students”. The panel of attorneys today included Todd Krause, Patent Litigation Partner, Desmarais LLP, Theresa Mohan, General Counsel, Exela Technologies, Janice Powers, Assistant Attorney General, Office of the New York State Attorney General, and Bob Tracy, Labor & Employment Partner, Gibney, Anthony & Flaherty LLP (also former President & Chairman of the Pelham Civics).
The Pelham Civics’ Career Awareness Program includes a series of panel discussions sponsored by The Pelham Civic Association and the PMHS Counseling Department, dedicated to helping students understand the range of career options available to them as they begin thinking about college and the world beyond Pelham. All the workshops take place at Alumni Hall, starting at 9 am and last about an hour. All PMHS students are encouraged to attend, regardless of grade. Because of limited space, only the first 75 students have the opportunity to attend. Additional workshops are currently being planned. When announced, we advise that you please see your guidance counselor if you are interested in attending.
