About 40 high school juniors and seniors from Colorado and across the nation recently visited the University of Colorado Boulder's Leeds School of Business to participate in the Key Business Leadership Program and see how to make college a reality, not just a dream.
The one-week program, supported by collaboration between Key's Colorado market, Key Equipment Finance and the KeyBank Foundation, exposed the underserved students to university life while teaching them about educational opportunities, professional competencies, and leadership.
"We are proud of this partnership, and it will continue for the next three years, making it possible for more students to attend this business-intensive experience," said Adam D. Warner, president of Key Equipment Finance and a member of the Leeds School of Business board.
The program introduced the students to marketing, technology, library research, business information, life skills, discovering Leeds, financial aid, student life, resume writing and a dinner etiquette class taught by KeyBank.
The week culminated in a team competition to develop the best image campaign for a company.
