Ann Rohmer: Branksome Hall Grad


Q: How has an independent school helped shape the person you are today? What life skills did you learn?

A: I received a very focused and thorough education at Branksome Hall. I was really lucky because my parents did what so many parents do, being that they scrapped together every nickel that they had to send me there. They wanted the best for me. I know and appreciate that, and I was able to learn the best academic and life skills.

Q: What opportunities have opened up for you as a result of going to an independent school?

A: I've been able to seize a lot of opportunities in my career. I'm not sure if that is because of an independent school, but I've been fortunate to find them and go after them.

Q: What is your fondest memory at an independent school?

A: After so many years, the school dances always stand out. It was a time that we could get out of our uniforms, dress up and just have fun.
