LARGO, MD – More than 30 alumni of Largo High School visited with current students yesterday to share their experiences in preparing for persevering through and graduating from college.
“Largo has a college-going culture,” said Angelique Simpson-Marcus, principal of Largo High School. “Everything we do supports the goal of preparing our students for the future - and we want them to succeed.”
Keadrick Peters, a 2006 graduate of Largo High School, was the driving force behind this event. Peters, who works for the Office of Residence Life at Bowie State University, says he wants students to be motivated, write down their goals and see them through.
Alumni visited with ninth-grade students during their first and second period classes. During the visits, students had the opportunity to ask questions and gain insight on college life.
“My purpose for being here is to encourage students to get a jumpstart on college and their future,” added Peters.
