Eastern Center for Arts and Technology (EASTERN) Office Management/Upper Moreland High School junior, Cameron Pulliam, is taking the first steps toward a career in business with a focus on entrepreneurship and finance by attending EASTERN.
When Cameron was a sophomore, he attended an EASTERN presentation at Upper Moreland High School. He heard about Office Management, EASTERN’s first new program in ten years, and felt as though he needed to further research the program. After visiting the program, learning about the college credits associated with the program, and meeting the instructor, Ms. Erin Derby, he knew this was a good fit for him.
He wants to be his own boss and put his name on several successful businesses. Cameron’s father was an entrepreneur for 30 years, owning several salons, which provided Cameron with a first-hand glimpse of the excitement of being a business owner.
Cameron recognized that he needed to sharpen his math skills in order to be successful in the business field, and has already seen an improvement through the work he has been doing in Office Management. He is still searching for the right types of industries for him, but he knows that he also wants to teach others how to become financially stable.
“After I become who I want to be, I want to help others. I want people to feel secure about their ability to support themselves and their families,” said Cameron. “I love it because it gets my mind constantly moving, and we keep up-to-date on all the new technologies. It is a professional and college-like environment that is preparing me for the future. The skills you learn in Office Management would be useful in any career, but if you are interested in a career in business – this is a great place to start. I am excited for when I go to college and can say I started here.”
Cameron plans to continue his education at a community college and then transfer to a four-year college.
