Verbum Dei High School students enjoyed a first-of-its-kind event, the Google Campus Tour, on Friday, November 15. During the two-hour visit, Google was happy enough to bring students of Verb to look around their company and to provide opportunities to interact with Google employees.
The purpose of the visit was “so that Google and Verbum Dei know one another,” said Joe Anlauf, Vice President of Corporate Recruiting.
Certain students were nominated by Dr. Brandi Odom, Chief Academic Officer, to go to the Google Campus Tour based on their grades. She felt they would represent the school well, and this trip is a reward for their strong academic performance.
Verb students were accompanied by VDHS faculty, administration, and staff including Fr. Stephen Privett, SJ, VDHS President, Paul Hosch, Senior Vice President of Development, Lorenz Willis, Dean, Associate Director of Corporate Work Study Program, and Francis Argueta, Jesuit Service Corps volunteer.
