Alumni stress importance of passion

The four Seven Hills alumni who took part in the December Alumni Career Panel stressed to Upper Schoolers during lunch the importance of being passionate about their future careers. “Do what you love and be happy,” said Brandon Hydrick ’92, who shared that he was simply going through the motions working in finance until he decided to attend the Culinary Institute of America. He is now the bakery team leader at Whole Foods Market. Rob Chavez ’06, who is a partner at real estate investment firm Chavez Properties, reassured the students that a Seven Hills education would make them ready for any career. “A lot of the things they teach at this school, like empathy, community, and working together, really helped me to be successful in any business environment,” he said.
