"Being a part of WIT, I have had the privilege to both witness and experience the effectiveness of the mentor program. The mentor program has allowed myself and other WITT members to get the personal commentary that we want on specific issues not only concerning the power plant, but also about the path to having a prestigious job like this. This personal input is something much more valuable than some other sources like Google or even Wikipedia. We have learned from people who were in similar situations as us years ago, and we have been able to gather tips from them that will help us overcome obstacles in our future. I admire the mentor's sacrifice of time to pour into the next generation the knowledge, insight, and work ethic that they have."Glen Rose High School WIT member
