Best of luck to our newest alum!

Every year during senior week, we invite a handful of the graduating senior class who had huge impacts on shaping businesses at HSA as well as building student manager culture. These seniors (although grumpy to be awake at the unreasonable hour of 11AM), shared their favorite memories from their summers at HSA as well as how their experience as a manager helped shape their career goals. Here are their former positions at HSA and where they are headed off to after college.
