At the height of the recession, the Class of 2011 was taking PSATs and perusing college brochures. What is it like to make plans for your future in a country whose economic future is uncertain?

To find out, we talk to four former students of Pembroke Academy: Matthew Lindsay, junior at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute; Sarah Kelley, junior at University of New Hampshire; Hannah David, junior at University of New Hampshire; and Kali Mara, senior at Plymouth State University

  • What were you hearing about the state of the economy when you were in high school?
  • When you graduated, how did what you heard match up with reality?
  • What are your college & career plans? How, if at all, have they been shaped by the state of the economy?
  • When you look toward the future, what do you think it holds for you & others your age?
