Talbot Mentors: The Mentees Get Ready for College


It is not much of an overstatement to say that the seven Talbot Mentors whose mentees will head off to college this  September are experiencing the same anxiety any parent might have when someone they care about leaves the nest.

In many cases, these mentor relations were established years ago in elementary school, with a history of all the twists and turns that many parents go through as they cheerlead, advise, listen, and silently worry, about their favorite young person’s future.

Much of that natural fretting comes to a dramatic conclusion next week at the Tidewater Inn when the organization hosts its spring lunch where the soon to be high school graduates will be celebrated for their success as they begin their higher education careers.

The Spy thought it would be informative to talk to some these mentees, all of whom will be the first generation of their family to attend college, about what they were looking for with colleges or universities. The answers might surprise you.

A few weeks ago, we sat down with Taylan Brooks, Randei Collins, Sean Cornish, Leonard Palmer, and Tabius Wilson to talk about college, diversity, and careers at the Talbot Mentors office in Easton.

This video is approximately five minutes in length. For more information about Talbot Mentors or to volunteer to be a mentor, please go here
