Nov 2012 (HHS) – The Birmingham Business Alliance recently put a call out to all area school systems.  According to the BBA, the call was simple: “Give us your best and brightest; not just the straight-A students, but those that are blazing a path toward a career and a promising future.  Bring us the next generation of Birmingham’s workforce.”  The students and corresponding administrators were featured in Alliance – the BBA’s official publication.  From Hoover City Schools, 18-year-old Hoover High School senior Travis Glass was chosen as part of what BBA calls "Generation Next".

“I felt really honored,” Glass said.  “It’s a big honor to be recognized as one of the better students in your school district.”

Glass and other honorees were treated to a networking breakfast sponsored by the BBA.  Additionally, the group was prominently featured on the cover of Alliance

Glass has made quite a name for himself around the halls of Hoover High School.  He successfully completed the IT (Information Technology) Academy last year and was inducted into the National Business Honor Society.  He serves as faculty liaison for SCO (Senior Class Officers) and is secretary for “Students for Liberty” – a student political group.  Additionally, Glass holds a part time job in the business field.

“It’s important to get to know as much as you can about the business field because it’s plays a big role in pretty much everything else,” Glass said. 

Travis Glass plans to follow his own advice.  He’ll be entering the University of Alabama next year as a Communications major – though he plans to take several communication business courses.  See the BBA Alliance issue here.
