Talia Kohan and Scott Diamond-Class of 2009

Alexander Sweet (2014)

After graduating Beacon back in May 2014, I was in a program called AmeriCorps NCCC FEMA corps, a national service program, for 10 months that helped me grow as a person even more and changed my life direction in a good way. I now spend most of my time trying to pursue jobs and a career working with sea life and ocean conservation by helping at different organizations, aquariums, and non profit organizations with marine animals and water quality and environmental tasks.

Alumni Spotlight

Scott Diamond

Scott Diamond

“I was always in special ed, but they weren’t really helping me with achieving success.” In high school, he says, the program he was in “did pretty much the same thing every year.” As a result, he says: “I was extremely unmotivated.” Today that “unmotivated” student is a computer support technician for PayNet Inc., in Skokie, Ill. “We support the entire company’s infrastructure servers, computers, laptops and software,” he says. “If a computer breaks, I’m the first person to call.”

It wasn’t until his junior year of high school that Diamond was diagnosed with an auditory processing disorder. For his senior year, his parents enrolled him in a high school designed for students with learning disabilities. When he arrived at Beacon College in 2007, Diamond was ready to learn. He knew he was good at computers; he just wasn’t sure what kind of job he wanted. Beacon’s curriculum and approach were perfect for Diamond. “Beacon helped me because of the small class sizes and the correct pace,” he says. “I didn’t feel stressed out or overwhelmed like I would have at a regular college.” Diamond thrived in Beacon’s close-knit community.
