Seminole Ridge High School recently hosted a “Hawk Alumni Panel” for current Seminole Ridge seniors, in which eight former Hawks shared their thoughts on college and on life after high school.
The alumni panel idea came from Brianna Lozito, a graduate of the Class of 2009, who told the guidance department that “so many freshman college students don’t know what to expect when they transition from high school to college.”
“Many seniors found the event helpful and appreciated the alumni sharing their college experiences,” guidance coordinator Sandy Baldwin said.
