Beginning the week of February 10th, Archmere’s Winter Musical Chicago: High School Edition began working nonstop. “Tech-week”, as they call it, consists of running numbers and scenes with the specific light changes, sound checks, and quick set changes. Tech-week requires a lot of patience and faith in the show, but once opening night rolls around, it all becomes worth it.
On Thursday, February 13th, juniors at Archmere Academy had the opportunity to attend various presentations during "Career Day". They learned about potential career paths -- from communications, accounting, and finance to physical therapy, aviation, and counseling. The sessions were run by Archmere alumni and friends to educate students about the many possible careers to pursue. I chose to attend presentations about marketing, graphic design, nursing, medicine, and law enforcement. In each session, I learned something new about the journey of choosing a career.
