When a flyer about the Al Ashley Career Development
Fellowship crossed Pauline Wethingtons desk in June she thought briefly
about applying. That was before she heard dynamic Juneteenth speaker
LaDoris H. Cordell, Vice Provost of Stanfords Campus Relations.
The inspiration from that talk led Wethington to get
Cordells business card and later to meet with her. From that meeting came
Wethingtons award-winning plan.
The Fellowship will enable Wethington to spend the next
year broadening her career experience and forging stronger ties between
SLAC, Stanford University and the community.
Starting in September, Wethington will be working with
SLAC Human Resources and Stanford Campus Relations to provide academic and
career counseling to diverse SLAC employees. "Cordell suggested that if I
am chosen for the Fellowship I consider being a liaison between SLAC and
Campus Relations as one of my activities. I liked the idea."
Wethington has a Masters Degree in Counseling Education
and is a 13-year veteran of the SLAC Public Affairs Office as well as a
counselor at DeAnza College where she counsels students and has worked for
the Math Performance Success Program.
She will continue her SLAC career outreach work with
students in East Palo Alto and Menlo Park as well as visit colleges,
schools and community organizations to educate them about SLAC job options
and tour programs. "Were in your backyard, come and visit us," Wethington
To apply for the Fellowship, a SLAC employee must propose
a project that will both improve his or her career skills and benefit
