In this week's Alumni Spotlight, we're catching up with alumnus Jil Slegh.
What are you doing now?
I am a retired Case Manager starting as a paraprofessional for Kasson-Mantorville High School for the 2023-2024 school year.
How did APS prepare you for this role?
My psychology class sticks out most in my mind of all the high school classes I took in helping me to decide where my interests lie. I went on to graduate from Mankato State University with a BS in Psychology and Corrections.
What is your advice for current Packers?
Learn how to study while in high school and never stop learning new things.
Who at APS inspired you?
Mr. Anderson and Mrs. Maus
