Alumni Speaker SeriesSeniors Learn from Alumni
The OLSM Alumni Speaker Series was started in late December of 2014 with the help of Don Ambrose. It enables alumni to return to the Prep to visit the senior class to share their experiences and important messages about what they’ve learned since graduating from OLSM.
Form 2014-15 school year, speakers ranged from Prosecuting Attorney to Salesman. Each and every speaker delivered a powerful message on careers, success tips and decision-making that had seniors reevaluating how they might approach the next step in life.
During the 2016-17 academic year, we enjoyed hosting all different types of professionals on campus (as seen below), and welcome you to come and speak.
Please contact Don Buchanan (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to be part of the Alumni Speaker Series.
