Taking it to the Towers

2014-11-04 04.07.12

On Election Day, Future 5’s scholastic all-stars walked out of our office and down the street to the leading global professional services firm, Towers Watson. They have been a longtime supporter of Future 5 with Dennis Barrette and others acting as college coaches and mentors to our students.

Towers Watson volunteered to host “The Ultimate Brain Wave”, a popular current events trivia game in which students are quizzed on the news from around the world. Students study up on politics, foreign affairs, sports, music, etc. and then compete for prizes. Future 5 members were greeted at Towers Watson, enjoyed lunch and then the intense competition began!

Trivia questions ranged in topics from Stamford politics to recent developments on Mars and in the end, five students walked away with gift cards to establishments such as Buffalo Wild Wings and Bow Tie Cinemas as well as a great deal of pride in a job well done.

Thanks so much to everyone at Towers Watson who made this event a possibility! If you or your company are interested in sponsoring a Brain Wave, please contact Ellen Berube at eberube@futurefive.org.
