Lacy School Career Mentors

Lifelong Relationships

From their first day on campus, students begin working with a personal career mentor. These former executives worked at companies such as Cummins, Anthem, Roche, and IBM and have significant professional business experience. Career mentors help students discover career paths and interests—and how to structure their time at Butler to meet their goals.

In the Words of a Career Mentor

While teaching career skills, we teach life skills. Authenticity, persistence, resilience, gratitude, and the power of human connection. The payoff for our students is more than a job, it’s the path to a fulfilling life.

—Randy Brown, formerly Chief HR Officer, WellPoint (Anthem)

Giving students the motivation and opportunity to explore and create themselves during their college years is a joy. Developing strategies for success and guiding students to achieve beyond their own expectations is the most rewarding part of mentorship.  I learn as much as the students do in the process.

—Eloise Paul, formerly Senior VP of Merchandising, Paul Harris
