Several of our graduates, who are about to start college, have talked to Mr. Conklin recently about their college plans, which include a large number of them pursuing sciences as undergraduates. Jake Eckhart ‘09, a recent graduate from The Hill School, is a freshman at Columbia University. He won science prizes in chemistry, physics, and biology in his first three years at Hill. Throughout his time at Hill, he told Mr. Conklin that he drew on his experiences with Mrs. Sheldrick to guide his approach to his science classes. Nisha Meyer ‘09 graduated from Episcopal in June and was the student government president her last year. She is now at George Washington University and plans on pursuing medicine. Lizzy Glass ’09 graduated from Ransom Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, FL. She wrote to us that she is now at Johns Hopkins University and plans to major in the sciences and is leaning towards pre-medicine, and Doug Moyer ‘09 will be pursuing science and technology at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) after 4 years at Downingtown West High School. It’s remarkable and gratifying to realize the impact that Montgomery’s science program has had on these students.
