WEN-North Texas recently teamed up with the Girl Scouts North East Texas for a Career Development Day on April 27, 2019. “It was a such a pleasure to volunteer at the Girls Scout Event in Plano Texas and have an opportunity to speak to them about careers in the Energy Industry. While talking to the girls, it became obvious, that these girls were eagerly looking into their future and have a plan of action to achieve it. It was very inspiring to hear them talk about their goals and aspirations,” said Gauri Gajewar, WEN-North Texas Board Member.
