The fourth annual Eagle University kicks off today at UofL in Louisville, Kentucky! Eagle U is a week-long event where about 200 students stay on campus and learn from world-renowned speakers about life experiences and how to set themselves apart from their peers. At the end of the week, the students get to meet with and interview successful community members for an opportunity to learn from their success. The Mortenson Charitable Foundation is proud to sponsor this event and help the children of our team members and patients learn the skills they need to become future leaders.
What is Eagle U?
During the Eagle U program, participants get a 7 year jump-start on life. Students entering high school through college age build self-confidence, motivation, and direction. Participants will find mentors that give them inspiration, wisdom, and new ways to develop a direction in life and be successful. Participants will also learn life lessons at the hands of those who have actually proven, by their performance, the success of the principles that they teach. At Eagle U, participants will define their goals and discover the tools to reach them.
The eagle has always symbolized independence, strength and focused direction. When you emerge from Eagle U, you’ll have the opportunity to be all of these things as you follow the systems you will be given. They are common sense systems, but not commonly practiced. To be extraordinary, you don’t do ordinary things that ordinary people do.
Why We Choose Eagle U
“It is critical to success to think and to plan ahead,” says Jacque Ramsey, Mortenson Fmaily Dental’s marketing director, “It is also critical to our company culture that we provide opportunities such as Eagle U to our team members’ children and our patients. Eagle U has been an extraordinary experience for the students that have been able to attend over the last three years. We are proud to partner with Eagle U and to support it so that others in the community can benefit from it too.”
Mortenson Family Dental participates by donating to Eagle U so that our team members’ children and our patients can experience the program at a significantly reduced rate. We are committed to helping not only our team members achieve success, but their families and our patients as well. By sending our young people to Eagle U, we are helping them create pathways to success.
