Career Day: A Look at the Future
February 8 was Career Day at Connelly High School in Anaheim. Ten Connelly alumnae, all representing different professions, returned to campus to share insights into their chosen fields. In a special morning schedule, students were able to participate in two programs, learn about a profession, and feel the connection with former Connelly students. Sharing their careers, left to right in the picture above: Gerrie Witte Adams '72, Business Owner - Xengaru Fun Foods; Diane Herweck '86, Psychologist; Dona Herweck Rice '82, Writer/Editor; Nicole Dubuc '96, TV Writer - Disney; Julie Krallman '84, Executive Producer - KABC TV; Andrea Drexelius '84, VP Client Relations - Rockefeller Property Management; Lisa Einck Albers '81, Controller - So.
