Renbrook School Holds Alumni Career Day

Renbrook School in West Hartford held its 3rd Annual Career Day with Renbrook alums talking about their various career this past Friday, November 2.

This program is for 7th- and 8th-grade students and is designed to give them an opportunity to learn about some potential careers/career fields from former Renbrook students who now work in those fields, to show them the often curvy road through life to a career/careers, and to instill a sense of being part of a community much bigger than their classmates and teachers. 

    This year four alumni were excited to return to Renbrook and to speak with students about their Renbrook memories, their career paths, and their successes and failures. Alumni guest speakers were Sophie Cottrell ’82 – SVP of Communications at Hatchette Book Group,
    Max Sinsteden ’02 – Cofounder and Director at Olasky & Sinsteden, Ali Lazowksi ’06 – Founder and CEO of Bare Life and recent 40 over 30 award winner, and Friya Bankwalla ’08 – Digital Publicity Assistant at Penguin Young Readers.
