Mitch Marois '10, the Outstanding Senior in his class, will return to speak to the Class of 2020 at their Commencement this May. As he prepares for his return he shares some advice beforehand: “At the end of the day, being a good person and a good friend matters more than any test scores or acceptance letters you get.

Shorecrest students are always striving to “Be More,” and some alums have done just that by making strong connections outside of Shorecrest. These connections have improved their leadership, service, and innovation skills. Since 1988, Shorecrest has sent 2-4 rising juniors to Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership Seminar (HOBY).
