St. Mary’s High School hosted its annual Career Day on March 15, 2023 welcoming alums back to campus to give inspiring and informative presentations for the students.
This year’s format change and selection process allowed for a much more intimate and interest-driven experience for both alumni and students alike. Students were able to choose from fifteen different careers and attended three separate 40-minute sessions packed with practical advice, words of wisdom, and moving anecdotes from the outstanding alums.
Alums ranged in graduation class from ’67 all the way up to ’17 and covered fields from art curation to veterinary medicine to financial services and everything in between. Principal Gerard Buckley stated, “Career Day is a day to be proud of the St. Mary’s product - for nearly 75 years, St. Mary’s High School has been a Catholic center of academic excellence, inspiring a diverse student body to pursue their interests while in high school, which later leads to successful and fulfilling careers.”
A sincere thank you to each and every alumni for spending invaluable time with the students. And a special thank you to Mrs. Kiera Walsh, Director of Alumni Relations, and Mrs. Sarah Griffin ’02, ’06, for their efforts in recruiting such an incredible and wide-ranging group of presenters for this event and creating a full schedule for the day. Students are already looking forward to Career Day 2024. (Photos by G. Shemitz for the Office of Communications).
