SCDS Alumni Speaker Panel: Pursue Your Passion!

On May 4, 2018, SCDS hosted its second annual Alumni Speaker Panel on campus. Students grades 6-8 had the opportunity to hear from five SCDS alumni on topics such as: transition, overcoming obstacles, and finding your passion. Grade 8 students were then granted the opportunity to partake in two breakout sessions where they took a deeper dive into discussion with two of the four panelists. Many thanks to our participants: Jessica Chin '14, Cole Graham '14, Max Engel '92, Kelley Hall '05, and Devon Thorsell '05. Learn more about the alumni panelists by watching highlights via the video (above) or clicking on their bios HERE.

Become a Class Agent 

Class Agents serve as ambassadors between their classmates and the school; serving as a conduit for increased engagement and communications.


Inquire about becoming a class agent today!


SCDS alumni are up to amazing things all over the world. They create companies, attend prestigious universities, express profoundly moving creative talent, take steps toward making the world a better place, the list goes on. A simple list doesn't do justice to the journey each alum has taken on their path to an inquiry-, curiosity-, and wonder-filled life. 


On that note, we hope you will enjoy reading about the latest circuitous path taken by an SCDS alumna--Samantha "Sam" Seaver '13--and that her story will allow you the opportunity to pause and reflect on your own journey.


Read Sam's thoughts after completing her freshman year at The University of Washington via the SCDS ALUMNI BLOG.
