Before the winter holidays, we sent out invitations to all college-aged alums for this year’s Grads Return Program. I expected a relatively normal distribution of RSVPs, with a few in the beginning, most in the middle, and some toward the end. But, as soon as we sent out the invitations, the RSVPs started coming and they didn’t stop. As we closed in on the date of the event, the forecast for attendance was many with a chance of tons.
Endless thanks to our young alums, as this year’s Grads Return Program had the highest attendance ever – 42 alums came back to share their experience and advice with our college-bound students.
We thank all alums for keeping this program alive. It’s a good chance for us all - for alumni to come back and see Overlake from a different angle and for us to see where alums are & how they got there. Since the college application process can at times seem a competitive sport (with the long-distance planning and constant tests of patience), it’s nice to hear a variety of voices and experiences from those on the other side.
We hope to see you next year!
