"Going to Richland College was a great experience for me. I have made lasting friendships that have stood the test of time. Being an alumnus of MT's program has created this special bond between so many of us that, even if we're not close friends, we all are so willing to help each other. MT and the HEEM program have created this lasting network that keeps expanding and connects so many of us. It's a great feeling."
"Before finishing at Richland, I had already started working with an international association located in the DFW area on their BOD meetings and international conference and exhibitions."
"I was surprised how many avenues there really are in the travel and meeting industries until I was years deep into the business. Networking really opened my eyes and ears. Look for those opportunities to expand your knowledge base in the travel, event, and meeting industry."
