Pair of Alums Share Career Insights in "From Whitewater to Silicon Valley" Presentation
Alumni Presentation

Whitewater High School Alums Tim Walsh and Michael Borglin shared some time virtually with approximately 45 of our current students on Wednesday, November 11. Most, but not all, of the audience was made up of current and former computer science students. Tim (Class of 2006) currently works for Google, and Michael (Class of 2008) currently works for Coinbase. Their presentation, “From Whitewater to Silicon Valley – an Alumni Q & A,” was well received by students and staff. The duo spent 45 minutes sharing their experiences along their career paths, emphasizing that they didn’t necessarily know that this was where their path would lead them. One of their key points was encouraging students to make the effort to make connections and to build a network with people across all fields.
