South Hills Community News Release

STATE COLLEGE, PA — Internship season is coming up for second-year students at South Hills School of Business & Technology. In preparation, the students take a Job Search Skills course which covers topics such as résumé and cover letter writing, interviewing skills, and job-seeking methods.

To improve interviewing skills, students participate in mock interviews with local employers in their respective fields. Sandy Cramer, Co-Owner of the HR Office, Inc, interviewed the Administrative Professional and Business Administration – Management & Marketing students, and Leanne Condo, Human Resource Manager at Blatek, interviewed the Engineering Technology students.

Job Search Instructor, Eleanor Martin, added, “Mock interviews are a great way for our students to not only get an understanding as to what to expect during the interview process, but they also provide them with tips and feedback on areas they can improve on to be successful when job searching.”

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.
