FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Concordia Lutheran High School is launching an alumni mentor program to provide students with direct access to careers in their fields of interest.
On Oct. 13, Concordia will host its first program with Janine (Ihssen ’78) Bernabe, a medical/surgical nurse at Lutheran Hospital. She has worked at the hospital for nearly 30 years, starting out in the medical records department. Out of college, she was a Peace Corps volunteer for two years in Ecuador.
Students interested in going into nursing will spend their lunch period listening to Bernabe. They will get to hear her talk about what her career entails and what steps she had to take to get into this field. There will be an opportunity for the students to ask questions and get more information about this given field.
Concordia Lutheran High School, located at 1601 St. Joe River Drive in Fort Wayne, Ind., was founded in 1935 as a private, co-educational Lutheran high school open to students of all faiths and backgrounds. With Christ at the center, Concordia continues to pursue educational excellence that equips individuals for lifelong learning and service as disciples of Jesus Christ.
