Senn: Famous Students


 

Famous Senn Students
 
Many Senn students have gone on to lead meaningful, successful lives; fewer, of course, have achieved national prominence. Here is a partial list of those who have. Understandably many on the list are those who made their mark in the entertainment industry or in sports. Where we know that the person attended Senn High School but did not graduate we have shown a target date based on 18yrs after date of birth with the suffix dng (did not graduate). The list is incomplete. There are several individuals listed on other websites as Senn graduates that we are seeking verification from official records and will be added if we can verify their graduation or attendance. This list therefore is shorter than some other lists on other websites.
