O’Neil is named N.H. Scholars Champion
ConVal School to Work Coordinator Mary Lou O'Neil was honored as a New Hampshire Scholars Champion for her work in business and education partnerships.
O’Neil was recognized for her work with placing students in internships and job-shadowing opportunities; for her ability to make connections with local business partners; for her role as student mentor for recipients of the ConVal Community Scholarship Foundation Dollars for Scholars scholarships; and for her work with school-to-career advisory teams. O’Neil provides students with an opportunity to test-drive careers and discover what a particular career is like, and the skills and training needed to be successful.
O’Neil was presented with this award by Scott Power, director of New Hampshire Scholars, and Dr. Virginia Barry, New Hampshire commissioner of education (pictured here with Mary Lou, right.) The breakfast ceremony took place at Southern New Hampshire University.
