#SPONSORED: U.S. Cellular Is Working To Educate Kids On Career Opportunities In Engineering

Disclosure: As part of the Better Moments Blogger Brigade Program, I did receive compensation for this post. The opinions expressed here are mine and nobody else's. I have been a U.S. Cellular Customer for 15+ years.

To celebrate the 65th Anniversary of National Engineers Week, U.S. Cellular is working to help increase understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers by holding “Ask an Engineer” sessions at Boys and Girls Clubs throughout the country.

U.S. Cellular is a leader when it comes to keeping families safe online. The Parent/Child Agreement is one way you can keep your family safer and smarter online. So, it should not come as a surprise that U.S. Cellular is paving the way for an engineering career for our kids.



The goal of U.S. Cellular’s “Ask an Engineer” sessions are to bring engineering to life for kids and show them the different career paths that are available with a technical or engineering education.
U.S. Cellular wants to motivate youth to explore career opportunities in engineering and to encourage a more diverse engineering workforce in the future.

These sessions will give attendees a hands-on look at how U.S. Cellular’s network operates and provide youth with information on career opportunities in engineering.


  • U.S. Cellular is providing this opportunity so that children and teens can have a behind-the-scenes look at how a cellular network operates and understand how engineering and technology is present in everyday activities.
  • Without engineers and the technology they build, U.S. Cellular would not be able to provide its customers with national coverage and a high-quality network that works wherever they want to go.
  • For youth or parents interested in learning more information about career opportunities in engineering, we recommend visiting the official National Engineers Week website at DiscoverE.org.
Education is something that I am personally concerned about. We have kids that do not believe they can achieve their goals, therefore; they shut down once they graduate (if they graduate) from high school. This program excites me, as it ties in technology with U.S. Cellular and a career that many kids would enjoy

U.S. Cellular currently provides its customers with national coverage and a high-quality network that works wherever they want to go. Most customers, not all, have access to a 4G LTE Network. I love the fact that my Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge works in so many places across the country, as it keeps me connected 24/7.

Thinking of all of the advances in technology over the past five years, is just jaw dropping. Our kids of today, are living in a exciting time of technology advances. Opportunities are everywhere and U.S. Cellular is showing families the behind the scenes look. Now that my friends, is a win- win. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?

Caucus Season Is Alive In Iowa

OK~ The Caucus is quickly approaching and tonight I headed to our local high school to see Former President Bill Clinton on a campaign stop for Hillary Clinton. I am not a registered Democrat, but I can tell you that here in Iowa, we have the opportunity to meet all the candidates when caucus season rolls around. I think it's important for us Iowans to hear what they have to say and then make a "wise" choice come caucus night.



I honestly decided to go see the former President about 15 minutes before the doors opened. I knew I had time to spare and it would all be good. I travel a lot and I have so many people that comment to me, "Oh, you are lucky. The candidates don't ever bother to step foot in our state." That statement is very true. As an Iowan, I can say that I probably take it for granted, and need to change that to being grateful.

We live in a free country, which is something to appreciate in itself. We also have the right to vote, whereas many in our world never have the opportunity. Tonight, Former President Bill Clinton reminded me of my roots in the Methodist religion, as Hillary is a Methodist. I have been a life long Methodist and there is something to be said about our roots. We, as Methodists, do care about others and strive to make a difference. I do agree, Hillary does have a history or trying to bring out the good in people. Although, I'm not ready to hop on her campaign wagon at this time.

All of the candidates are traveling through our state and will continue up until Monday evening. I'm not sure if I will venture out to see another one or not. Honestly, I'm getting about campaigned out. I think back to that caucus night in 2011, as I was not a happy camper.

I am really glad that I did make the time tonight to go see Former President Bill Clinton. It's not everyday that your local high school is taken over by the Secret Service, with a visit from a former President of the United States. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
