At the May 18 ceremony for graduating seniors, San Miguel High School announced that two students would receive scholarships provided by 2 Tucson based Vistage International CEO Peer Advisory Groups. The scholarships were awarded to Brittany Hart and Gary Allen who competed with four other students for the scholarships. Both students will attend the University of Arizona and plan to study business.
The two combined CEO Peer Advisory Groups include CEO’s, Company Presidents, and “C-level” Executives who work together to solve tough business problems, overcome isolation, and generally outperform their competitors. Combined the 20 or so companies employ more than 3,000 people nationwide and account for revenues in the hundreds of million dollars.
The groups have an affinity for San Miguel. Several of the companies employ San Miguel High School interns, who work at jobs as part of their Corporate Internship Program, a program which provides a way for students to earn their tuition for the private Catholic and Lasallian college and career prep school located on the south side of Tucson.
With more than 15,000 members worldwide, Vistage International provides unparalleled access to new business perspectives, innovative strategies and actionable ideas to chief executives and business leaders. Vistage will soon name a second Tucson group chair and expects to double its Tucson presence within twelve months.
