STATE COLLEGE — Hundreds of prospective students arrived by the busload to attend Career Exploration Day at South Hills on Thursday, November 3rd. Guests at all three campus locations were given the chance to sit in on classes, learn more about the various programs at South Hills, meet faculty members, and participate in a student panel discussion with South Hills Student Ambassadors.

The highlight of Career Exploration Day is that visitors are able to speak with graduates from all South Hills programs who are successfully employed at various businesses all throughout the Central Pennsylvania region. It serves as a unique opportunity for visitors to see the effects of a South Hills education on real people in their communities.

A big thank you goes out to our Student Ambassadors and especially to our alumni who generously volunteered their time to help make this day a rewarding success for everyone.

Kari Lynn Schlegel

March 4, 1992—December 15, 2016

Kari Schlegel was born in March 1992 and graduated from South Hills in September 2012.

The Kari Lynn Schlegel Memorial Gallery is named in memory of Kari Schlegel, a lifelong Bellefonte resident and 2012 graduate of the Graphic Arts program at South Hills.

Kari was often the exclamation point in any story about the Class of 2012. Her effervescent good mood, enthusiasm, and seemingly endless supply of optimism and positive spirit was infusive, lighting up the classroom.

Kari (right) is shown with her beloved sister, Mindy.

Her classmates still laugh at the memory of Kari wearing her bunny slippers on the Graphic Arts field trip to New York City. Groan-worthy puns and jokes? Kari had a volume of them. She delighted in sharing stories and photos of her four beloved cats as well as trivia and tales of Harry Potter and Disney World. She was a rare combination of innocence, maturity, trust, and hope. She was filled with a joy of life and an unconditional love for her friends, her family, her pets… and people she just met. That was Kari Schlegel.

Kari dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow for the South Hills “BooFest” Halloween party in 2012.

She loved her school, even coming back to audit several GA classes after graduating. Kari also particularly enjoyed returning to South Hills every summer to perform as part of the Music Picnic Series with the Bellefonte Community Band.

Kari died December 15, 2016, in a tragic automobile accident. It’s a loss everyone who knew her still feels. In the end, Kari truly lived her life with passion and joy, treating others as she wanted to be treated: with love, compassion, and respect.
