Blair students had the opportunity to connect with alumni pursuing careers in nursing and in the media at two Alumni Roundtables. The sessions took place in the Chiang Center for Innovation and Collaboration, and included discussion and Q & A. Blair’s Alumni Roundtables were instituted by Head of School Chris Fortunato during the 2017-2018 school year, and the series has given students a unique, firsthand look at a variety of fellow Buccaneers’ careers.
