On March 5, 2021, COMTO North Texas hosted a virtual career information day for Dallas/Fort Worth high school students. We all know that the transportation industry is exciting, varied and offers abundant career opportunities to move our nation, and the chapter invited local high school students to learn about the numerous possibilities of working in transportation.
What was even more exciting than the virtual event itself, was that COMTO North Texas was able to present Garrett A. Morgan’s granddaughter, Sandra Morgan, as the keynote speaker. More than 100 students were able to listen and learn about Mr. Morgan as an amazing businessman, community leader and inventor from the mouth of his own family member.
Ms. Morgan informed and educated in an engaging and exciting format. Our team, in partnership with Ms. Morgan, even created a quiz in which we were able to award exciting prizes to several students.
COMTO North Texas was proud to have conceptualized and carried out such a wonderful and successful event to excite high school students about the possibilities of a future in transportation.
