Opportunity Knocking:

EXPLORING CAREERS THAT MAKE GOING TO WORK EXCITING AND FUN.

The Hendrick Scholarship Foundation Symposium

The last few years, HSF has orchestrated a Student Symposium for the Hendrick scholars at the end of the school year.  The event was created by the Leadership Plano Class 35 in 2018 and has become an annual event. Held at Collin College, this event is a full day symposium that includes guest speakers focusing on college and career information and motivation as well as break out sessions that offer opportunities for discussion about career choices, further education and potential ways to find jobs. 

In 2019, we created a Career Expo component to the event. Throughout the day, the students were able to visit the Expo where businesses throughout the area answered questions about job opportunities and requirements needed to obtain jobs in their fields. 

Companies represented at the 2019 Career Expo included:

  • Baylor, Scott and White
  • Cigna
  • Cinemark
  • Donna Bender Company
  • Medical City – Plano
  • MRM CPA’s
  • North Texas Performing Arts
  • Plano ISD
  • State Farm
  • Texas Health Resources
  • Toyota North America
  • WSI Digital Marketing
