Medway Public Schools Superintendent Armand Pires and Principal John Murray are pleased to share that Medway High School recently hosted a successful “Life After MHS” alumni event.
On Jan. 4, approximately 40 Medway High School alumni met with current MHS juniors and seniors to share their experiences and accomplishments since graduating.
Throughout the event, current MHS students heard from two groups of alumni who answered questions and offered advice about college searches, application processes, and more.
Alumni in attendance represented a variety of colleges, universities, and military branches including Villanova University, West Point, Framingham State University, Boston College, Johnson and Wales University, Northeastern University, University of New Hampshire, and Sacred Heart University, to name a few.
Topics of discussion included searching for and visiting colleges, challenges with leaving home, the transition to college, the advantages and disadvantages of a gap year, tips for the first year of college, and majors and resources available at colleges. Students also asked alumni how MHS influenced their decisions and prepared them for their futures.
“The event went great and the students had amazing questions,” said MHS Class of 2023 President Charlie Ross. “I’m so glad to be able to return to MHS and give back to this community. I hope all of the students benefited from today’s event, and I wish them luck in their future endeavors.”
The Medway Secondary Parent Teacher Organization (MSPTO) helped organize the event and sponsored a welcome breakfast.
“I would like to thank all alumni who attended he Life After MHS event and shared their experiences with our junior and senior students,” Principal Murray said. “This event is a great way to inspire our current students to strive to reach their fullest potential in whichever career path they choose after graduation.”
