Cabrini Career DayCareer Day 2017 welcomed 29 presenters, 23 of whom where Cabrini alumnae. The day began with Community Mass after which guests enjoyed a Continental Breakfast in the Sister Aloysius Almerico, MSC Library. Then guests moved to their respective rooms for three presentations to all levels of the student body who had previously indicated which presentations they would attend. Choice topics ranged from Law to First Responders. Many of the presenters brought display material and samples of some work for the girls to inspect. Then, there was Jay Romig, who discussed Sports Administration and delighted the young ladies with the Saints’ Super Bowl trophy and his own Super Bowl Ring!
