A special thank you to our Career Day Speakers from the Greenwich community.  We were delighted to have the following participants speak on Tuesday, May 23rd, to our 8th graders:
Josefina Akerman, Jen Bird, Janet Bodey, Alston Calabrese, Frank DeLuca, Vicky Dussich, Sharon Elkayam, Arwen Evans, Tine Fincieon, Clare Flynn Levy, Shane Foley, Brielle Goldfaden, Julie Hall, Hillary Harper, Harsha Jain, Sarah Jenkins, Bruce Johnson, David Joosten, Annabella Jucius, Lisa Kerney, Maya Korin, Daphe Lamsvekt-Pol, Jackie Marks, Sarah Nia Keshvarzian, Camilla Pedersen, Lily Perry, Carolina Pombar, Paul Sethi, Joe Summa, Mike Van Oss, Rain Wang, Katie Watson, and Lori Woodring.
Our students began this event with a general assembly in which former EMS teacher Bruce Johnson and former EMS student Harsha Jain spoke about the importance of passion and perseverance when determining a career path.  Students were then dismissed to attend three different sessions with our speakers.  The students were exposed to a wide variety of career options and offered the opportunity to ask questions and participate in hands-on interaction.

The majority of our speaking panel came from our GPS community!  Students had the opportunity to request their desired areas of interest. Please click here for the available speaker bios. This year's Career Day featured speakers in various career sectors.  These sectors included:
