A dozen families from several states in the region attended Accepted Students’ Day on March 5. Current students in the Education program welcomed guests at “Baggage Claim” with luggage filled with information and treats.
First-year students Joy Lee ‘25, Ashlee Payton ‘25, Grace Polak ‘25, and Gabby Reyes ’25 shared authentic and compelling stories in response to the question, “Why did you choose Stevenson?” Val Paulina Quintanilla Carranza ’24 discussed her experiences as a transfer sophomore. Juniors Wiktoria Bilich ’23, Eva Furman ’23, Lauren Green ’23, Kiana Johnson ’23, and James Small ’23 described the variety of field placement opportunities available. Kayla Moran ’22 and Morgan Carcamo-Tillery ’22 represented the senior class and spoke about internship.
Kayla Moran, Wiktoria Bilich, Lauren Green ’23 represented Stevenson’s chapter, Psi Omicron, of Kappa Delta Pi (KDP), an international education honors society. In addition, Kylah Hardy ’24 represented Teachers of Tomorrow (TOT). Special thanks goes to Stevenson Ambassador Cassie Schreiber ‘23, who led the campus tour and chaperoned the visitors.
Finally, our inspirational graduate, Ms. Jocelyn Richards ‘20, held the audience spellbound throughout the session as she shared her experiences in the Stevenson Education program and her position teaching fifth grade at Mars Estates Elementary in Baltimore County Public Schools. Her wise and wonderful way of choosing just the right words engaged and inspired our future Education Mustangs.
Thank you to all for representing the School of Education with your time, energy, and enthusiasm.
