We have Usher’s New Look Foundation updates! Castle Painting is proud to be a member of Usher’s Chairman Circle for the amazing Usher’s New Look Foundation. We believe in this organization so much that Castle Painting sponsors it as a top-level contributor. We love working hands-on with the students and seeing the amazing things they are accomplishing with the tools and support from Usher’s New Look.
Our founder Miguel Castillo and his wife Laura thoroughly enjoy mentoring youth, and signed up for Usher’s New Look’s job-shadowing and leadership-training programs.
Job Shadowing Program
We were honored to host students from Usher’s New Look for a day at our Castle Painting office. Both Miguel and Laura shared experiences on how to build a business and their professional stories. One of the students was Que-J Brown, an 11th grade Atlanta Academy Member from West Lake High School, who is interested in business, engineering, modeling and drawing, with a career goal in entrepreneurship. After his day with the Castle Painting team, he wrote a blog post, a reflection about his experience. Of course, we were thrilled!
He writes, “I very much enjoyed my day job shadowing Miguel Castillo. I learned so much from this man and left inspired to work hard to create my own business someday. It was an experience I will never forget.”
Thank you for the kind words, Que-J! We are happy that you enjoyed your experience and found it inspiring. Read the full blog post about Que-J Brown’s visit job-shadowing Castle Painting and Miguel Castillo.
President’s Circle Luncheon
We can’t wait for the President’s Circle Award luncheon today, celebrating Usher’s New Look’s 15th anniversary! Here’s what it’s all about:
New Look honors and recognizes the diverse ways individuals, organizations and corporations are empowering youth as leaders and change agents around the world. This year’s President’s Circle Awards is more than a luncheon – it is an opportunity to confront the education crisis and unite to take action. By bringing together celebrities, elected officials, business leaders, and philanthropists, our goal is to raise enough money to support Usher’s New Look’s life-changing work around the world.
So excited and honored to be a part of it. Make it an inspirational day, folks!
