One of our very ownOn Tuesday, February 26, 2019, MEC welcomed former Crete-Monee School District 201U student, Mr. Chimaobi Enjia.  Currently Mr. Enjia is the Deputy Chief Operating Officer of the Illinois Liquor Control Commission.

Former resident of University Park, Mr. Enjia spoke about his time in the district at the middle school and the high school.  He shared inspirational stories about developing relationships, having integrity, being accountable as a student, and what it means to be a friend.  He made several friendships with several peers when he was a student, and those relationships have grown and continued.

He talked about finding and following your "passion".  Mr. Enjia asked students about their goals and stressed the power of being your own person and not being afraid of expressing your individuality.  He highlighted the importance of education and listening to the people around you; like teachers, administrators, and coaches who all have your best interest at heart.

Students seemed to enjoy hearing from "one of our very own".  Mr. Enjia was presented with a certificate to recognize his time at MEC.  He left after getting a tour of the school by high school Student Ambassadors, Bailey Windom and Kayla Palcek, and middle school Student Ambassador, Brandon Alexander.
