A 1962 graduate, Stewart Early, now living in Bethlehem, Pa., talks to current students. He works as a management consultant and engineer.
Graduates from the Mt. Lebanon High School Class of 1962 returned to their alma mater Friday to talk with students from the Class of 2013 for "Lebo 50/50."
The Class of '62 shared career advice and their experiences after graduation with current seniors at the morning-long event. They also sat with the Class of 2013 for career counseling. Later, the two groups compared answers to an extensive survey crafted months earlier by members of both classes.
The results were interesting, school district spokeswoman Cissy Bowman said. "They're very optimistic about their future, yet they're not unrealistic," she said of current high school seniors.
Although some answers to the survey were surprising, graduates of both classes had one answer in common when asked: "What would you do with two extra hours in the day?" The response: "Sleep."
