Ferra Pinnock

“AGS provided me with a rare opportunity to pursue an education that transcended the conventional classroom experience. Whether studying abroad in three different countries, interning in the ER department of Grady Hospital, or founding the first academic quiz team in AGS history, I ventured beyond the lecture hall and learned lessons far more valuable than those written neatly in my high school textbooks. Words cannot fully express the value of an AGS education.”

The 2013 Valedictorian, Ferra is majoring in chemical engineering and serves on the board of Yale’s Chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers. Ferra began AGS in the 6th grade, excelling in both academics and athletics. She was a four-year AGS Scholar, member of the National Honor Society, and a National Achievement semifinalist. Ferra was named multiple times to the all-region basketball and soccer teams as a Varsity athlete, and she also played softball and volleyball.In addition to being a Circle of Sisters representative, she served as a Student Ambassador and enjoyed traveling to Spain, Costa Rica, and Belize.
