On Friday, Mar. 25, Brother Rice hosted their 28th Career Day. The day is a great opportunity for alumni and current Crusaders to connect.
Alumni that are in industries from all over the world came into school to talk with our students about their careers. There were over 80 alumni that presented to our Crusaders, starting from the Class of 1961 all the way to the Class of 2010.
That alone says a lot about the Brother Rice community and how much we all really care for each other. Class of 1961 David Dillion also related to that when he said, ¨The main thing is all the friends I made and still have. I don’t think many people still have friends from their 1961 high school year.¨
Students are so fortunate to have these men explain their career and how they reached their goals. It is an awesome opportunity for students to really think about their own futures. They can discover careers they really like or ones similar to it.
Sophomore Cale Cosme ’24 really enjoyed his time listening to the alumni on Friday: “I love Career Day because it allows me to think about what I want to be when I’m older. I love that it is a whole day experience to because it helps me to compare these alumni careers throughout the day.¨
Senior Kevin Murphy loved the uniqueness out of all of the presenters on career day: ¨One thing that stood out to me was how different all the careers were. There was a wide variety of jobs and routes.¨
It was another successful and beneficial Career Day for our students that reflected on it very seriously.
