    Help a Senior Thesis Student
    In 2014, Senior Thesis became a full-participation event for all Holderness seniors. Since that time our network of parents and alumni have played a pivotal role in the success of Senior Thesis by providing experiential learning opportunities in their respective industries. We hope you’ll consider offering spring break, summer, and other short-term internship or shadowing opportunities that will help seniors further their studies. Please contact Sarah Barton if you would like more information.
