On Tuesday, October 27, we were pleased to host our first Career Breakfast for this school year online via Microsoft Teams Live Event to explore a day in the life in Professional Athletics with two of our alumni, Spencer Estey '12 and Jordyn Listro '13.
It was interesting to hear about their differing perspectives regarding professional athletics. Spencer opened our eyes to a variety of career possibilities, such as the use of data analytics on player performance and how it has led to improved decision making and better results in the field. He also shared some wise advice - focus on a specific sport and figure out the skills that would be the most beneficial, then learn those skills and apply them to a sports team. Jordyn shared her journey as a professional soccer player both in Spain and now in Orlando. She reflected honestly on her challenges and encouraged students to take similar steps as she did. By persevering through uncomfortable situations, surrounding herself with a positive support group (which she formed at Bayview Glen), going the extra mile and remaining focussed on her end goals, Jordyn can truly say she is living her dream.
The next Career Breakfasts are scheduled for Tuesday, December 1, 2020 and Tuesday, March 2, 2021 at 8:00 a.m. online via Microsoft Teams Live Event. Please stay tuned for more details.
Congratulations to #BVGAlumni Layla Ahmad '10 on her first children's picture book, "When Mom's Away", which will be coming out in Spring 2021 with Canadian publishing house Second Story Press. A story about a little girl being brave while her mom is busy being a doctor keeping her family safe. Layla works in public relations and communications, and is excited for many more stories to come.
The 2019-2020 yearbooks have arrived! In light of the current COVID-19 circumstances, we will be doing yearbook distribution a little different this year. For those #BVGgrads2020 who have younger siblings attending Bayview Glen, their yearbooks will be delivered to their sibling's homeroom or mentor during the school day next week. Since the school campus remains closed to visitors, we will reach out to the rest of the grads and their parents individually to confirm their address for home delivery – no pickup arrangement this year due to health and safety precautions. Thank you for your patience and understanding during the distribution process. We miss seeing all of you #BVGAlumni in person and look forward to the time when we can gather again safely! #stayconnectedonline #bvgmemories #2020yearbook #keepsafe #bvgforever
