Olympian Claire Collins ’11 Speaks to Students

Claire Collins ’11, our first-ever Olympian alumna, returned home with a message for our Dragons: “Dream big, because I was just like you.” Claire helped propel the U.S. women’s rowing team to a 7th place finish in the women’s coxless four event last summer at the Tokyo games.

We think Claire is an extraordinary example of one of our kind, confident, and prepared alumni. While at WES, she was known for her kindness and perseverance. You can learn more about her visit in these stories in Bethesda Beat and Montgomery County Media.
