Highline Public Schools boasts a long list of well-known and accomplished alumni and dozens of grads you haven’t yet heard of who are poised to make their mark on the world. One of those up-and-coming graduates is Stephen Duong, a 2012 Big Picture alum. Highline is featuring Stephen in this month’s #HighlineAlum social media campaign. He currently studies life sciences at The Evergreen State College. His life goal is to conduct research in a lab or pharmaceutical institute. “The one thing that I really enjoyed about the Highline School District community is its inclusive approach to education. Rarely do you see so many options for students to pursue academic success. I’m really grateful for all the opportunities and support that I received during my time here,” Duong said. Each month, one successful, high-profile alumnus and one up-and-coming alumnus is featured on Highline’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The features include a short video clip of the alumnus. The community is invited to follow along by using the hashtag #HighlineAlum.
