Where are they now? We check in with high school alumni
Where are they now?
This is the time of year for looking forward and looking back. Young adults who are just graduating from college are looking forward to the next stage of their lives, and looking back at the chapter that has just ended. Those who are younger are looking back to sum up what they have achieved so far so they can figure out what they still need to accomplish to get that diploma and what lies beyond. And for those whose high school years are a few years behind us (or many!) this is a time to look at the newly minted graduates and see a bit of ourselves in them.
‘Turn the pages’ and you’ll see mini-profiles of the local graduates of not so many years ago updating us on what has become of their lives, and giving today’s graduates some insight on the endless possibilities in front of them. We chose a selection of people from the four local high schools who graduated between six and 12 years ago in the hopes that this year’s high school graduates will be able to see something of their own generation in the stories.
You’ll find a variety of vocations and avocations represented in the profiles, but they barely scratch the surface of the diversity that can be found among the young people produced in Addison County.
Enjoy the stories and the photos and wish a graduate well.
