Cobb Systems Group CEO Serves College Students Through Mentoring
Recognizing the importance of growing new leaders, CSG’s CEO, Wayne Cobb, serves as a mentor through the Montgomery College Alumni Association (MCAA).
May. 1, 2017
Since 2013, Wayne has mentored four students, including aspiring business students and engineers from different ethnic backgrounds and age range. Particularly, Wayne uses mentoring to encourage female and minority students studying in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields.
Wayne believes that it’s important to get to know the students and help them as much as possible. He starts to build the relationship as soon as the connection is made through MCAA, sometimes even before the official orientation. In addition, Cobb Systems Group is an organization that he uses to expose students to the professional side of technology and engineering, which is beneficial to the students as they carve out their career path.
Wayne’s mentees have received internship opportunities at CSG or at one of CSG’s clients, and all have gone on to get full-time employment or pursue a four-year college degree. Wayne finds it personally rewarding knowing that he is making an impact on each student’s life and future career. An example of that impact can be seen in this video. Mentoring through his alma mater enables him to give back to the community. Organizationally, CSG is committed to community service and trying to shape the next generation of leaders. Wayne encourages his friends and colleagues to join mentoring programs in the community.
