Alyssa Connecticut 
2020 

Alyssa’s ability to perceive a problem and quickly craft and communicate a solution has allowed her to excel as a delegate at Model United Nations conferences around the country and as a member of The Woodstock Academy’s academic committee, a subcommittee of the Board of Trustees. Alyssa applied these same skills as a tutor in the Writing Centaur, The Woodstock Academy’s peer-led writing center. She combined her talent as a writer and passion for social activism by researching and creating a topical guide to activism in Connecticut.  

She was awarded the four-year award for outstanding achievement in History and Social studies and her achievement in Latin earned her acceptance to the Latin Honor Society. In keeping with her appreciation for the humanities, Alyssa took part in The Academy’s 2020 production of Thorton Wilder’s Our Town. As co-president of the National Honor Society, Alyssa empowered her peers in leadership and community service. She dedicated many hours serving at a local clothing closet. 

Alyssa received both the Yale Honor Cup and third place in the Kathryn Robertson Essay Contest, two of the greatest honors bestowed upon graduating students. Alyssa will attend Quinnipiac University and pursue studies in law
