Beaumont Career Day 2024
Beaumont Career Day 2024

On Friday, April 19, Beaumont welcomed 23 alumnae back to Beaumont’s campus for Career Day 2024! Career Day, a tradition begun by Director of Guidance Alicia McLean in 2013, continues to be a source of inspiration for hundreds of Beaumont students. Students spent their mornings in small group sessions with presenters whose careers they found intriguing and ended their day with an engaging panel discussion and a question-and-answer segment brimming with favorite Beaumont stories, both sentimental and funny. Notably, panelists remarked numerous times on the lasting power of the Beaumont sisterhood. They also each reflected on the powerful presence of leadership and service in their adult lives. Truly, our Beaumont alumnae are the living embodiment of Beaumont’s mission. We are so proud and grateful.
