HMS Career Fair

On Tuesday, 4/11, HMS students had the privilege of participating in the annual Career Fair keynote assembly, featuring Christopher Tyll. Mr. Tyll spoke about the role that athletics and community service have played in his life, and shared what it was like to attend the U.S. Naval Academy. He described his training as a US Navy SEAL, and touched on the various, vital, life lessons he learned during this time. Mr. Tyll stressed the importance of students identifying their passions, and the ability to persevere during challenging times. He shared his journey to becoming a business owner of Pat’s Pizza, and the obstacles he encountered as he pursued this next chapter in his life. We're grateful to Mr. Tyll for taking the time to talk with our students, and for donating his speaker honorarium to a fund that will allow an HMS student to attend camp this summer. The students were inspired and appreciative of Mr. Tyll's keynote address!

Students attended four Career Fair sessions the following day, which allowed them to access information on professions ranging from advertising to video game designer. This was a hugely successful, engaging day for our students!

Special thanks to Nini Emmons, Laura Mike, Mike Arsenault, Brad Ciechomski, Mark McDonough, Ira Warshaw, Bob Morse, and Rich Smith for everything they did to create this wonderful experience for HMS students, and to all of our community volunteers who donated their time, and participated in this important opportunity for our students to focus on their futures.
