Passing the Torch Speaker Series
For the 2020-2021 school year, Carroll alumni volunteers are speaking to students about their career in a classroom or virtual setting. The purpose of this program is to provide an opportunity for students to begin looking at life after Carroll High School and learn from those who came before them, giving alumni the ability to pass the torch and share their knowledge on careers and/or educational paths.
The speaker series will be held on two Tuesdays of each month, beginning in October, during the student's family room lunchtime.
If a Carroll graduate is interested in participating, please fill out the online form on this page. The Google Meet platform can be used for any speaker session in which the Carroll graduate lives out of the area, or if a virtual session is mandated for health reasons.
Details about the speaker series will be distributed to Carroll juniors and seniors on a quarterly basis. These students are welcome to sign up here for a maximum of three sessions per year. All sessions will also be recorded and will be available for later playback.
The structure of the speaker sessions will be as follows:
- CHS staff member introduces speaker
- Speaker explains profession/career type (speaker may incorporate PowerPoint slides or just simply use TED-talk conversational style): 3-5 minutes
- Speaker gives overview on history from when he/she graduated from Carroll to present day (career path): 3-5 minutes
- Open Forum/questions from students & answers from speaker: Final 20 minutes
The specific career topics and dates are listed below. We hope to add more career options next school year.
