At-risk students shadow CNP Houston employees

ShadowingCNP employees recently hosted middle and high school students from the Fifth Ward Enrichment Program for a day of job shadowing as part of a youth leadership and development program for at-risk males, ages 12-19. Nine students were greeted by Patrick Stephenson, senior service consultant, Bellaire Service Center; Steve Gipson, service consultant, Greenspoint Service Center (pictured left with two students); Charles Cunningham, key accounts consultant, Harrisburg Service Center; and Calvin McKnight, graduate engineer at the CNP Tower. The employees each took the students on tours of their facilities and then walked them through their daily activities. Consultants from each of the service centers shared their daily responsibilities with the students, and some students even had the opportunity to go in the field to watch CNP linemen at work.
