Worked-Based Learning in Full Force

Senior members of the Everett High School Marketing CTE program recently visited PUMA North America to learn the ins and outs of one of the world’s powerhouse athletic brands. EHS Vice Principal Stanley Chamblain helped plan the field trip, which was chaperoned by CTE Director Cristina Sanchez-Serrano, Marketing Teacher Siobhan Sullivan, and CTE Instructor Paul Cangianno.

The EHS students took a tour of the PUMA North America office located in Somerville, experienced a visual history of the brand, and saw various stages of the product development process. The tour was led by PUMA product line manager Ronelson Lovaincy.

After the tour, students attended a panel discussion with six PUMA employees from various departments, including: IT, Finance, Product Development, Basketball Business, Merchandising, and Materials Design. 
At the conclusion of the field trip, every student was given a pair of PUMA sneakers!

“Visiting the PUMA headquarters was such a great opportunity,” said Aline Silva ‘23, who will be attending Suffolk University in the fall to study marketing. “Being able to tour each floor, listen to panelists about how each of them got to where they are now and how they landed a job at PUMA was truly a great and inspiring experience!"

The marketing program hopes to make this an annual field trip.
