2017 BLA Career Day

On a rainy March morning, more than two dozen alumni went “back to the future” at Boston Latin Academy, where they met with 300 sophomores at the annual Alumni Career Day at Boston Latin Academy. For some, this was their first visit back to Townsend Street since graduation. Others had graduated from a different building in a different century, but relished their time with this generation of students.

Sophomores had ranked their interest in 15 professions and then had the chance to meet with alums working in their top two choices. Alums told students about their own education and career history before opening the floor to student questions. Students also learned about the breadth of work options within a field. For instance, an attorney with an international corporation was paired with an attorney working in the Commonwealth’s criminal court system. Professions represented were advertising, business, computers, criminal justice, education, engineering, finance, government, law, library science, medicine, nursing, performing arts, pharmacy, physical therapy, scientific research, social work, and sports medicine.

Many of the alums ended their visit with a student-led tour of the school, and several sought out their former faculty. Margaret Sullivan coordinated the alumni volunteers and BLA faculty member and alum Elvira DeLuca coordinated the students. The association thanks Gia Adams, Maria Barakat, Carol Bender, Patrick Brophy, Antoinette Coakley, Dorothy Curtis, Mothler Dalexis, Kevin Finn, John Flynn, Gwendolyn Goodwin, Michael Lester, Bobby Lam, Bob Magner, Jason Manhart, Fabricio Paes, Cailin Pagel, Patrick Paul, Sheriece Perry, Richard Pierre, Casey O’Bryan, Monica Roberts Jonathan Sanchez, Bridget Sweet, Vadra Ward Tabb, and Shirley Woo.
