Thank you to Mr. Richard Blank, Abington alum from the Class of 1991, for his inspirational speech to the inductees of the Abington Senior High School’s National Honor Society at today’s first ceremony
SPANISH STUDENTS WELCOME MR. RICHARD BLANK
The ASHS Spanish students had an opportunity to meet Abington Alum, Mr. Blank, during a recent Career Chatter. Mr. Blank was the guest speaker from this year's National Honor Society Induction. The Career Chatter was a huge success, and great food was catered by Tierra Colombiana. Mr. Blank talked to the Spanish 4 and 5 students about the benefits of continuing language studies as part of their post-secondary education program. Giving back to Abington Senior High School is very important to Mr. Blank. As such, Mr. Blank endows a scholarship each year for students that plan on majoring in a world language at the university level. Presently, Mr. Blank is the CEO of the Costa Rica's Call Center and is considered a leader in the telecommunications industry.
Thank you so much for taking time out of your day Friday and sharing your story with our students. This was definitely our first bilingual Career Chatter session, and I was so impressed by our students questions (in both languages!) for you and their courage to approach you after the sessions to ask more questions. Thank you for being so attentive to each and every student. Those students taking the initiative to approach you is part of the self advocacy we are trying to build through this program, and I was so happy to see it in action.
Thank you and have a great day!
