As current seniors at The Pennington School, we have been told for almost four years about our amazing alumni connections. Whether for our senior year Horizon projects or information about a college, we are encouraged to refer to our alumni. Although we are led in this direction, many of us are not able to witness it firsthand. As Student Ambassadors, however, we were able to see the impact Pennington has had on so many alumni at the Philadelphia Alumni Reception. While there, we were able to ask questions about their experiences at Pennington and their lives after Pennington. We met alumni in a wide variety of professions including the medical, finance, and legal fields. The alumni we met were eager to speak with us seniors and were generous in encouraging us to reach out if we ever needed any insight or guidance.
It is an honor that we will be joining this successful and prosperous group of alumni in a few short months upon graduation, and we look forward to extending our hands to help others in the future as well.
