Alums to Crusaders: You Can Do It



The big takeaway for over a hundred high school Crusaders who attended our fifth-annual Crusade Alumni Career Fair on Saturday, May 6 – Even if it’s hard, don’t give up. A team of 32 Crusade alumni from nine different career fields talked to students about their jobs, their educational paths, and their passions. Laiza, a 10th grader from Classical High School, said, “The most important thing I learned today was perseverance. To keep trying despite the challenges that come my way.” Oumy, a 10th grader from Davies Career Tech, said, “I learned that you can go through many careers or majors before you get to the one you love.” Lennox, a 10th grader from The Met School, said, “I was given a lot of advice that just made me feel better. It also motivated me more.” James, a 10th grader from Cranston East, said, “I learned that I have to push myself to get what I want.”

We are very grateful for all our alums who volunteered their time to inform and inspire students!
