Our second speaker of the year, Orgelio “Jay” Soares, joined the Nativity community on September 28. Our first alumnus to participate, Soares shared insights about the various experiences he had at Nativity and the role that his secondary education at Greater New Bedford Regional Vocational Technical High School (GNBVTHS) has had on his life and career path. Soares, a member of the Nativity class of ’13, pursued Steam Engineering (now Stationary Engineering) at GNBVTHS and presently works for SEMASS in West Wareham. He spoke to his vision of becoming a teacher in a vocational setting one day. Soares was honored as part of WCVB’s “A Plus” series and received the 20th annual Kirby Perkins Scholarship Award in support of his further studies.
