Success Stories

As the lead for the Chamber’s Mentoring Program, I have the privilege of working with interns from Lamar State College Port Arthur, Texas Workforce Solutions, and other workforce experience entities.

One of our greatest success stories here at the chamber has been a young lady named Mrs. Courtney Brooks-Swaim.

Courtney came to us from Lamar State College Port Arthur where she graduated with her Associates Degree of Applied Science in Office Administration Technology in 2017.

She is currently the Financial Secretary for Hamshire Fannett Middle School and adores her new career.

Courtney always radiated positivity and had a passion for instilling hope in others. During her time as our intern, Courtney mentored her fellow program participants and helped them grow and learn. I was always pleased about how Courtney never shied away from working in groups and was very outspoken when participating in discussions.

Courtney also took full advantage of the exposure to employment and career opportunities whenever she could. I was constantly impressed by her talent, attitude, time management, and intelligence.

It was my honor to have Courtney as an intern here at the Chamber and we wish her the absolute best in her future endeavors.
