Celebrating the Wichita Collegiate School class of 2020!

Join us in congratulating these seniors as they look ahead to their future plans.

Julia Ashbrook

One of Julia Ashbrook’s favorite Collegiate memories is Picnic Buddy Day during homecoming week. She says, “I love the morning full of fun activities and getting to spend a whole afternoon with my young buddy. You get to see all your past teachers and give them a big hug!” Julia is attending Elon University in the fall, planning to major in cinema and television arts, and get involved in many clubs and organizations.

Isabella Do Orozco

Isabella Do Orozco is attending Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the fall, majoring in chemistry and biology. “MIT has always been my dream school,” she says, “and it is thanks to all of the amazing teachers at Collegiate that I was able to get there. I especially owe a lot to Mrs. Harris as it is because of her that I became so interested in science, and her support throughout the years has been invaluable to me.”

Nate Egan

Nate Egan is the youngest of five brothers, all Collegiate graduates. His mother and aunt are also alumnae. He fondly recalls his favorite teacher in the first year of middle school, Mrs. Fiegel. “She made me feel so comfortable about starting middle school, and always had a hug and a nice thing to say,” says Nate. He is attending Fort Hays State University and plans to major in business administration and finance.

Ryan Edwards

Ryan Edwards will be a cinema and media studies major at the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts, consistently ranked the No. 1 film school in the world. He says, “I’ve been at Collegiate my whole life. The school facilitated my love for film and helped me get to where I am because of teachers like Ms. St. Clair supporting me. I had the freedom with my classes to pursue what I was interested in.” He is thankful to the College Counseling department for their help with the college application process.

Sana Mahomed

Sana Mahomed’s favorite part of her Collegiate experience has been the support system in the school community. She says, “the faculty, from the teachers to administrators to counselors, have always been there for me — to congratulate me on my highs and help console me on my lows. I always felt genuinely listened to.” Next year Sana is attending the University of Kansas in the Honor's Program following a pre-med path and continuing to study Spanish, a passion she discovered at Collegiate!

Aidan Walsh

Aidan Walsh came to Collegiate from England and was amazed by the many activities and clubs available to students, while feeling part of a close community. He says, “Collegiate does not just offer clubs and sports, it offers clubs and sports that are exceptional. The athletics at Collegiate provided me with discipline that didn’t just make me a better athlete but made me a more diligent student in the classroom. Trust me, Collegiate cares about its classes and rigor, but it looks to develop its students beyond academics. There are countless opportunities to achieve great things.” Aidan is attending Princeton University in the fall and plans to study computer science and artificial intelligence. He will be attending with a Marine Corps ROTC scholarship so he may serve as an officer after college and hopes to play rugby.
