Sangeetha George, Careers & College Advisor, making final cap adjustments before graduation
To the Class of 2014,
Last year this time there was a whole array of emotions going through me because the Class of 2013 had just graduated and they were the ones who helped me transition so smoothly to KIS when I first joined. I didn’t know what life would be like without them here and how in the world was I going to start working with a class of 108 students who I hardly knew. That’s when Eric, your class sponsor thought it would be a great idea for me to join you for your field trip. In fact he didn’t even give me a choice and said this would be an amazing opportunity to get to know each of you. I was cynical initially but decided to go on the trip and in hindsight I know for a fact Eric couldn’t have been more right. What an experience that trip was and it started a journey that I will never ever forget. The myriad of emotions while completing countless number of college applications, frustrations with personal statements written and rewritten so many times, the contentment of sending applications, all the innumerable tactics used to find predicted grades and the peals of laughter and excitement on being accepted. Before I knew it both the CAREERS offices were filled with students all day long seriously working on completing college documents, listening to different genres of music, finding a quiet corner because they needed a place to get away from it all and breathe or even a 2 minute visit to say hello and get a pat on the back or hug.
