The 100 Black Men of Middle Tennessee, Inc. partnered once again with Nissan to present the 4th annual Nissan Resume Challenge. This program offers local area high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to learn proper resume bulding and interview techniques through a series of workshops and interviews conducted by The 100 and local Nissan executives.
Challenge winners were invited to participate in a 2-day leadership development program held at Nissan's Franklin, TN headquarters on February 23-24, 2017. The young men of Middle Tennessee were joined by high school students from other 100 Black Men chapters from Chicago, Jackson, Atlanta, Dallas, and Washington, D.C. The high school students from Nashville represented MLK, Cane Ridge, East Nashville, and Maplewood High Schools.
The young men toured the Nissan manufacturing and battery plants in Smyrna, TN and met with Nissan engineers and automobile designers. In addition, they had the special honor to meet Mr. John Martin, Senior Vice President, Manufacturing, Supply Chain Management and Purchasing for Nissan North America. A special treat was the tour of the Car Salon at Nissan Headquarters.
