South Hills Community News Release

STATE COLLEGE — South Hills School of Business & Technology students showcased their skills at the NETWORK 2018 Career Fair held on March 29, 2018 at Mountain View Country Club in Boalsburg, PA.

Hundreds of South Hills students, from all three campuses (State College, Altoona, and Lewistown), were on a search for the internship or employment opportunity best suited for them. They had the chance to meet one-on-one with over 90 employers from many different industries such as marketing, sales, health care, and law enforcement.

Career Services Coordinator, Ellen Spinelli, said, “South Hills students are given thorough instruction on how to successfully conduct a job search while learning the importance of networking. The NETWORK 2018 Career Fair is an excellent resource for the students to not only apply their skills, but also become comfortable interacting with different employers. Many of the company representatives are South Hills graduates who are able to offer advice and support making the process easier for the current students seeking employment or internship opportunities.”

Employers interested in learning more about how to participate in next year’s Network and Career Fair or how to share employment and internship opportunities with South Hills students or graduates should contact

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.
