In an effort to give back on campus, journalism major Nick Bailey recently started a Peerless Mentoring Program to benefit students at Texas A&M University-Commerce. Bailey, founder and CEO of Peerless Promotions, the company sponsoring the program, established the service as an outlet for incoming freshmen students to learn, grow and flourish into young adults.
“We teach students techniques to develop their skills in time management, study habits, money management and community involvement,” Bailey said.
During the fall 2011 semester, the program mentored six freshmen students who showed great growth both personally and academically after only one semester with the Peerless Mentoring Program. According to Bailey, these improvements are a result of positive academic influence and community involvement.
