Anna Picciano ’17

University of Pittsburgh
Anna Picciano ’17 is able to deftly apply the skills she learned in George School’s English classes to college.

What are you studying in college?

I am studying Rehabilitation Science at the University of Pittsburgh. I will be continuing my education after I get my bachelor’s to become a physical therapist and obtain my doctorate. Over the summer I worked at Comprehensive Sports Care Specialists in Newtown as a physical therapist aid, which was a lot of fun. The physical therapists showed me how to stretch patients, how to do special exercises in different situations, and how to use tools I did not even know existed. They also explained more about the job while giving me hands on experience. It was a lot of fun and very exciting.

How did George School prepare you for life after commencement?

Being honest, George School was more difficult than my freshman year of college. I have made the Dean’s List every semester so far, and I placed out of the basic freshman English course. I attribute this to my teachers Colette Weber and Ralph Lelii; they helped me improve my writing.

I attribute my success thus far to George School and miss it so much. I could not be more thankful for the experience I had there.
