Head of Upper Division Dr. Jessica Levenstein and the Parents Association (PA) hosted the second Alumni Panel, which aimed to give parents the opportunity to listen to the perspectives and paths of former students as their own children progress through the school, Levenstein said. 

“The event has huge value, because it’s very informative and nice to talk to the alumni, who felt that HM had prepared them for the next chapter in their academic careers, and hear that at the end of the day our students end up okay despite all the stress,” First Vice President of the PA Danielle Stennett-Neris P’19 said. 

Following introductions, the panel was held in a question-and-answer format in which alumni answered prompts from Levenstein as well as questions from the audience of parents. 

Alumni were chosen to represent a diversity of experiences both within and beyond the school, Levenstein said. 

Topics ranged from the transition to a college environment and reflections on the college process to how the school formed the paths of students and advice for parents. 

Levenstein and the PA’s decision to hold the panel stemmed from the success of last year’s event, she said. However, many parents were previously unable to make the event, which was held at the school during the morning. As a result, this year’s panel was moved to its location at the Penn Club during the evening of May 23, Levenstein said. 

“The panelists were intelligent and articulate,” Laurie Zeppieri P’19 said. “I believe they provided valuable insight into the role educational and professional choices played in future success.” 

“I loved coming back and talking on the panel,” Emily Perelman ’10 said. “These events make me realize that Horace Mann never leaves you; the school is always a part of who you are.”
