Past Carver HSR Students Return to give words of motivation for

Youth Motivation Week 2013
 
Returning Students

On Thursday, December 19, graduates of Carver Health Sciences and Research returned to give some words of wisdom to current students. The alumnus returned in droves from schools like Morehouse, Spelman, Alabama A&M University, Alabama State, Syracuse, Xavier and many others. They began the morning with a reunion brunch then moved on to having small group rotations with students in all of the classes. Afterwards the juniors and seniors convened in the auditorium to have a town hall session with students. The floor was flooded with questions about college life, the work-load and adjusting to the pressures of being an adult. The most important lessons came from one student who stressed the importance of “staying focused” and “developing good work ethics”.

In addition to having the alumni speak, the teachers got in on the action of youth motivation week with a door decorating contest. Each teacher chose a college to represent. The winner this year was Ms. Conethan who “repped” The Oregon State Mighty Ducks!
