Teacher Externship Wraps Up Another Year

 

School’s out for summer, but Tennessee educators made Unum their classroom from June 19-21. The Teacher Externship week began with a look at Unum’s customer journey experience. Rep. Carter and Sen. Watson were on-site to participate in a conversation about government affairs and the Hamilton County, TN Delegation. The afternoon was spent in conversation about transformational change led by Tim Arnold, President & CEO at Colonial Life, an Unum subsidiary.

On Tuesday, the group heard about Chattanooga 2.0 from local policy influencers, and then made a field trip to Causeway to learn how to integrate innovation and education. Finally, the group delivered a presentation with their reflections and commitments to take back to the classroom.

“Empowering educators is a huge part of our corporate social responsibility,” said Jeana Lee, community relations specialist at Unum. “The Teacher Externship is a great experience on both sides, and this year was no exception.”

 

Congratulations Unum!
