“Denver Academy gave me the confidence I needed to reach my maximum potential.”
Each year, Denver Academy sends graduates into the world and eagerly watches to see what they will accomplish in their lives.
One of our alumni, Andrew Pochepan ‘12, was recently selected out of 5,000 applicants for a coveted marketing internship at WEX working on the Shell team. This internship will propel him forward as he works to complete his MBA in international business at Nova Southeastern University. His decision to study international business was inspired by experiences he had while attending Denver Academy.
“Denver Academy made me love school so much that I'm still a student!” Said Pochepan, “The international experiences I had at DA made choosing international business as my BA and MBA an easy choice.”
While DA provided Pochepan with a great education, he also learned important leadership skills too. He recalls teachers, especially Mr. Brookhart, giving him many opportunities to become a leader. The opportunities were provided in the classroom, on the soccer field, and during an overseas experiential trip to India.
DA Ninth Grade Teacher and soccer coach, Mr. Ramsey Brookhart, commented, "Andrew came to DA with an open mind and a desire to succeed. His internal drive coupled with DA's program became a perfect match for him to shine. From soccer captain to academics and more, he truly took control of his education and his future."
We can’t wait to see what the future has in store for Andrew , and wish him the best as he completes his MBA.
