Advanced Hires is proud to have attended the Center for Teaching Entrepreneurship’s Big Hat Soiree 2019 at the Marcus Performing Arts Center. Kevin Scholz and Tina Rock were honored to have gone to the event, which was a salute to the legacy of ReDonna Rodgers. The Big Hat Soiree is a celebration of the Center for Teaching Entrepreneurship and its founder, ReDonna Rodgers, a maverick, motivator and inspirational leader who helped more than 19,000 young people in Milwaukee during her life.
The Center for Teaching Entrepreneurship was founded in 1991 by Franklin Buchta and ReDonna Rodgers. CTE has empowered thousands of young people with a mindset they call The CEO of Me. This mindset empowers young people to take ownership of their futures and all the actions they will need to get there. This mindset takes hold because of CTE’s multi-year relationship with individual young people.
Christopher’s Project provided the musical soundscape at this year’s Big Hat Soiree. The event honored the Sherman Phoenix’s JoAnne Johnson-Sabir and Juli Kaufmann as recipients of the inaugural ReDonna Rodgers Legacy Award. It was also great to hear about all the work Senator Lena Taylor is doing for Wisconsin and our community.
Advanced Hires is committed to giving back and volunteering time, expertise, and donations to many groups and nonprofits in the area. We fully and wholeheartedly support organizations like The Center for Teaching Entrepreneurship because we know how important it is to cultivate and inspire young people to reach for their dreams and look towards a bright future. At Advanced Hires, we strive to support and encourage young people, especially those with IT aspirations, in order to generate future IT leaders in an industry that desperately needs them.
Many thanks to JoAnne Johnson-Sabir and Juli Kaufmann, who were honored at the event for all the amazing work they do. Their contributions are inspiring and noteworthy.
