Young Alumni Panel

On May 24, Shore alumni Julia Dobbins ’18, Jerry “Jay” Edokpa ’19, Lily Iler ’19, and Brigid Woelfel ’18, spoke with current Grade 8 and 9 students during the school’s inaugural Young Alumni Panel. Director of Secondary School Counseling Sander van Otterloo and Upper School faculty member Louis Frank moderated the virtual event, asking panelists to share about their experience transitioning to high school and being Shore alumni. 

All four panelists reflected on the strong relationships built with Shore faculty and classmates as Shore students, spoke to the exceptional study skills they acquired while at Shore, and urged students to be open to new opportunities and friendships. At the end of the event, the alumni panelists fielded questions from the audience and shared words of wisdom and advice with the students.
