MCC-Longview students on the way to St.  Luke’s Hospital

Students from Metropolitan Community College-Longview had the chance to visit St. Luke’s Hospital and State Street Corp. for a chance to peer into what could be potential careers.

At St. Luke’s, 22 students listened to a series of professionals talk about their jobs. They included representatives from the Surgical Services, Outpatient and Inpatient Rehabilitation, Outpatient Nursing, and Radiology departments.

“The trip not only affirmed my career path but expanded my ambition for both current and future opportunities. The importance of what I’m learning in class has been put into perspective,” said one MCC-Longview student in summing up the experience.

Two MCC alumni spoke during a panel discussion at State Street Corp., which provides investment management and financial data analytics for institutional investors. Twelve MCC students participated in that trip.
