Spearhead Staffing has teamed up with the Somerset Patriots to create big win for Central Jersey teens interested in business leadership.
Skyler Pearsall, a 13-year-old 7th grader at Edgar Middle School in Metuchen, will find herself in the front office of the Somerset Patriots baseball organization this summer. Skyler’s opportunity is part of an innovative program, sponsored by Spearhead Staffing and the Somerset Patriots, that invites Central Jersey teens to let their leadership abilities shine.
“We were so proud to connect young, energetic
candidates with an amazing summer experience.”
– Doug Bryson, President of Operations for Spearhead
As the Kid CEO, Pearsall will shadow front office staff members during the games to learn about ticketing, merchandising, promotions, media, marketing, and ballpark operations. She’ll sit in on Patriots staff meetings and write about the experiences she has in the position. Pearsall will also receive a personalized Somerset Patriots jersey, tickets to five games, a ceremonial first pitch for a game, and a meet and greet with Sparky Lyle, Brett Jodie and the players. This is the seventh time that the team selected a Kid CEO.
Skyler was joined by fellow finalists Evan Gilmurray (Bridgewater), Charlie Grippo (Bernardsville), Jimmy Marvits (Hillsborough), and Nicholas Morgan (Piscataway) on the field before the game on Friday, May 26th for their final interview to determine the winner of the program. Skyler’s persistence paid off this time, as this was her third straight year as a finalist for the position.
