PHH Arval Hosts Wolfe Street Students

By Terri Houck
4th Grade Teacher, Wolfe Street Academy

On Thursday, May 16th PHH Arval, a fleet leasing company in Sparks, MD, hosted Wolfe Street Academy 4th grade students.  As they entered the office building students were greeted by Pam Walinski, Vice President, Customer Services, Debra Smith, Supervisor, Contact Center, and Chuck Hogarth, Manager, Contact Center.

They then proceeded to a conference room where they enjoyed a light snack and an introduction to the fleet leasing business. The PHH staff talked about the importance of attending school every day and how they use math and proofreading in their daily work tasks.

After this introduction, the students then proceeded to various departments within the company.  They learned and practiced vehicle safety on the vehicle safety simulator.  The simulator is used by company car drivers to help them be more aware of the hazards of driving.  They participated in an interactive demonstration with the Customer Experience team and listened in on Vehicle Accident Services calls.  After dining in the café the students enjoyed hands-on experiences with medium and heavy duty trucks and construction equipment.
