Sanchez Set To Ring Closing Wall Street Bell As Recognized Business Leader

 

 

ST. LUCIE COUNTY – Dr. Rafael Sanchez, Executive Director of Human Resources for St. Lucie Public Schools, looks forward to ringing the closing bell for NASDAQ in New York City on October 25. This opportunity that many on Wall Street clamor for is a result of his distinguished recognition and receipt of the Capella University Business Leaders Award. Recipients of this leadership honor are stand-outs among their peers as demonstrated by their ambition, academic excellence, and comprehensive understanding of the current business environment.

 

“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and my family is looking forward to celebrating this achievement with me,” said Sanchez.  In addition to participating in the closing bell ceremony of the NASDAQ, Sanchez will be granted an insider’s tour of The Wall Street Journal and meet with Dow Jones Talent Development leaders.

 

Having recently completed his doctorate degree with Capella University, he used the application opportunity to share how the University’s doctorate program supports his workplace goals and aids his professional practices.  Superintendent E. Wayne Gent said, “Dr. Sanchez is a tremendous asset to the team we have built.  His insight and vision help us establish and maintain an exemplary workforce to deliver quality instruction in a safe and caring environment for our children.”
