125 Remarkable Griffins

In celebration of Pomfret's 125th anniversary, we are shining a light on 125 difference makers who represent the best of what it means to be a Griffin.

 


 

The number of Griffins who have made their mark on the world is staggering. Take Jon Stone '48, the co-creator of Sesame Street. Or Thomas Garrison '96, a National Geographic explorer. Or Felice Mueller ' 08, an Olympic rower. Or Chelsea Cutler '15, a singer-songwriter with over 30 million streams on Spotify. Remarkable people. Remarkable achievements.

In celebration of Pomfret's 125th anniversary, we are shining a light on these difference makers — 125 individuals who represent the best of what it means to be a Griffin. This assemblage includes Nobel laureates and Oscar winners, industry titans and government officials, artists and athletes, activists and entrepreneurs. It also includes a number of people who are harder to label but no less extraordinary, people leading lives full of passion, courage, wit, wisdom, creativity, and grace.

Of course, for every remarkable Griffin who made the list, there are hundreds more who deserved to. It would have been impossible to take the full measure of them all. As with any ranking, this exercise was far more art than science, and we'd love to hear what you think.
