This year’s Career Day exposed our Upper School students to a wide array of professions to consider as they ponder college and career ahead. Medicine, weather forecasting, culinary, finance, martial arts, graphic design, aviation, and web design were just a few of the fields represented, and the presenters’ offered details about working conditions, materials, and advancement in their chosen careers. Students were allowed to rotate to four presentations of interest during the event.
The 24 professionals who came to detail their journeys included alums Bill Pearce ’76, Marc Cohen ’90, and Steve O’Neil ’93, who spoke of their inspiration being derived from their time spent at Jemicy.
All faculty shared in a luncheon in the Tomlinson Theater, and career presenters were welcomed and thanked by Head of School Ben Shifrin. Thanks to Liza Koh ‘88, Mark Westervelt, and Lucy Sheppard ’11 for organizing the event.
