On Wednesday, May 15, during the lunch hour, Youth Rising Up* held its third annual Alumni Luncheon.
Over 65 students and alumni, ranging from the Class of 1997 to the Class of 2018, gathered in the Shorewood High School North Gym to network with one another and to share personal experiences with each other. Hearing the alumni share a variety of success stories was very inspiring for the current students, and everyone enjoyed the chance to connect.
