Harriton High School held its annual Career Symposium to expose students to a wide variety of career options and choices they may consider.
Wendell Holland, an HHS alumnus who graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Morehouse College and who graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Law School, opened the event by sharing this career path. That path led him from the law to the CBS televisions series "Survivor" to becoming founder and chief designer of Beve Unlimited, a company that transforms reclaimed wood into unique custom furniture. He also led students and staff in an interactive "Survivor"-themed competition.
After Holland's presentation, the students each attended two different career session from a number of presenters.
Careers presented included Graphic Design and Visual Arts, Sports Management and Marketing, Writing and Publishing, Rehabilitation Therapies, Nursing, Pharmaceutical Science, Building Trades and Engineering, Law Enforcement, Environmental Science, Advertising and Marketing, Animal Science, Sports Medicine and Athletic Training, Non-Profit Organization Management, Military Science and the Armed Forces, Psychology/Psychiatry and Social Work, Finance and Investment, Entrepreneurship, Education, Real Estate, Food and Travel, Music, Performing Arts and Theater, Politics and Government, Computer Science, Medicine and Dentistry, the Law, and Broadcasting.
