Mock Interviews - Kennedy Middle School
May 17, 2019 – MGS participated in mock interviews with 8th graders at Kennedy Middle School in Germantown. The goal of the mock interview program is for students to experience the job interview process, which helps prepare them for on-site interviews in the future. The teachers did an amazing job demonstrating the interview process, from preparing for the interview, to the how and why of sending a thank you note afterwards. MGS had a wonderful time participating in this event and we wish these students much success in their career endeavors.
SCORES Cup Soccer Tournament
April 27, 2019 – MGS sponsored a team of employees at the 14th Annual SCORES Cup soccer tournament to benefit Inner City Youth. The tournament helps provide high quality after school programs for grades 3K through 12, working with kids to develop skills surrounding health, academics, and self-expression in more than 25 program locations throughout Milwaukee. This is the fifth year that MGS has participated. Our team made it all the way to the Championship round, but fell short of the big win.
