Scholar Career Field Trip

AhmarriThis month, Ahmarri was escorted by one of his Boys Hope Girls Hope mentors on a career field trip to Copic Insurance Company in Denver, Colorado.  Copic provides liability insurance to medical professionals and hospitals in Colorado.  The organization also partners with some of most prominent defense attorneys in the State, providing a comprehensive service for the medical industry.  Ahmarri shadowed Copic’s Vice President of Claims, Sean Gelsey and he received insight about what it takes to effectively run a large corporation.  The scholar hobnobbed with Copic’s CEO, COO, and one of Denver’s most prominent defense attorneys, Bruce Montoya of Messner & Reeves.  Ahmarri learned that college education is imperative as it provides leverage in the business world.  Everyone at Copic raved about Ahmarri and many of them passed along their business information and asked him to keep in touch.  Being the gentleman that he is, Ahmarri returned the favor by writing heartfelt “thank you” notes to everyone that made his career exploration possible.
