“My hope is for your to leave here with your eyes and your ears wide open. To find your passion that gives you joy and pleasure every day” -Princeton University President Dr. Shirley Tilghman
Dr. Shirley Tilghman, President of Princeton University, took a brief opportunity to visit and speak to the HS students today in a special assembly. The topic of her talk…finding your passion. Dr. Tilghman told the stories of 4 Princetonians and their journey to finding their true passion. Whether they came to school knowing what they wanted to study and stuck to it, or discovered post graduation that they were pursing the wrong thing, the lesson was this: everyone has a passion, the package and time line might just look different than others. The 4 Princeton graduates she spoke of were the founder of Amazon, the founder of Teach for America, a Principle Ballerina, and a successful scientist. All their stories look completely different, yet one thing rings true. Today, they are all pursing what they are passionate about.
EHS was so lucky to have Dr. Tilgham, an Princeton Tiger and fellow lover of the Orange and Black visit campus today!
