Young Alumni College Networking Event

"Supporting Young and Future Alumni"         young networking group photo


  The Alumni Association sponsors an event to connect graduates from the last 5 classes to return to the high school and share advice with juniors and seniors about post graduated education and careers. Recently, the event was merged with the Annual Career Day. The school-wide event was called College and Career Readiness Day and a series of activities were planned for all students in grades 9-12. The activities included:
Career Fair : Over 75 professionals were in the gymnasium to discuss their careers and answer any questions students may have. There were representatives from every career cluster (with many WHS Alums in attendance!)
Alumni Fair: Over 25 recent WHS graduates were in the cafeteria to talk about their college and career experience since graduating from WHS.
Alumni Panel: WHS Young Alumni were in the auditorium to discuss their pathway after graduation. The focus was on the ups and downs of college and employment as well as their suggestions for what high school students can do to better prepare themselves for life after high school.
