Continuing its partnership together, the New Orleans Saints and the US Army collaborated on another Life Skills seminar today at Belle Chasse High School in front of an audience of over 200 students.
Jason Trosclair, the club's director of youth programs and SFC Negrete from the United States Army spoke to the students. The two speakers discussed the choices they have to make in high school, as well as the opportunities in their respective fields and how the Army can play a role in helping people achieve their career goals. In addition to explaining what qualities the Saints look for in individuals that they hire, mentioning that they are looking for the same positive characteristics most employers are looking for, Trosclair emphasized that it is important for them to have a career plan and that it's never too early to start planning for the future.
Following their talks, the speakers opened up to the audience to take questions about careers in sports and the Army. They then brought questions to the audience and students that gave the correct answers were rewarded with Saints baseball caps, game worn gloves and practice jerseys.
This special program with the Saints and the Army will be visiting various schools in the New Orleans area during the spring.
