"Pomfret transformed me into a student ready for college."
— ELLIE SANGREE ’20
After discovering her love for biology and aquaponics at Pomfret, Eleanor Sangree ’20 went on to Hamilton College and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. There, she designed and developed a floating aquaponics system to remediate and reduce nitrogen pollution levels in ponds, lakes, and rivers. By her junior year, she was offered a job in water body remediation.
Winner of Pomfret's highest honor, the Founder's Medal, Michaela Nsubuga ’21 is now a pre-med student studying neurobiology and anthropology. She is also a member of the Pathways to Medicine Program and the Global Health Fellows Program at Dartmouth.
His senior year, Derek Smith ’23 was the editor of the school newspaper, a prefect in the dorms, and a student tour guide. In his spare time, he taught a coding course at the local town library. "I was ready for college," he says. "This is largely due to the leadership roles and independent work I did at Pomfret."
"I chose Colby because of the competitive academic program and the sense of community I felt with the soccer team." MK Marshall ’22 plays goalkeeper for the women's soccer team in the New England Small College Athletic Conference. It's a position she honed at Pomfret.
