Pinnacle Group CEO & Chairman Nina Vaca spoke with Dallas ISD students in the Pathway to Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) Program at Thomas Jefferson High School Dec. 15 in Dallas.
Pinnacle Group is an industry partner in the program, which teaches students academic, technical, and workplace skills that employers seek. Upon completion of P-TECH, students also receive an associates degree from Brookhaven College.
Nina shared how she watched her parents launch their own businesses after moving to the U.S. from Ecuador and how she was the first in her family to attend college, like many of the students in the program. She also encouraged them to find role models and seek out their own American dream.
