Alumni Profiles: Connecting the Present with the Past

A special thank you to members of the Class of '22 for writing the profiles, the alumni who volunteered their time, and Mme. Persaud for organizing this liaison.
When you run into someone who went to Neuch, it creates an immediate connection point and hours of shared stories and memories.  Each year, we look for opportunities to connect our current class with our NJC alum.  Our current class is always eager to learn from their experiences and hear what life after Neuchâtel might be like. 

One of this year’s Writers Craft class projects was for current students to connect with, and write a piece on, an alumni.  These profiles were created to celebrate and share the experiences and accomplishments of our graduates. 

We will be releasing three profiles at a time over the coming months.  We are pleased to feature the written work of our Writer’s Craft Class ‘22 and grateful to the alum who participated for sharing their time, stories and experiences.
