Stanley Peterson ’11 Combines Ultimate Skills with Humility and Hard Work

Stanley Peterson ’11’s fame as an Ultimate player has soared like the discs he learned to hold, pass, and catch while an eighth grader learning the emerging sport from CWA art teacher and coach Christopher Hoppin. Now a collegiate national champion and just months from graduating from the University of Colorado in Boulder, Stanley looks back to CWA’s influence on him, which began well before he and his Frisbee finesse earned national titles and thousands of views on social media.

Switch Stance: Seth O’Byrne ’00 on Learning from Failure

Switch Stance: Seth O’Byrne ’00 on Learning from Failure

posted 4.17.2015

Seth O’Byrne ’00 is a down-to-earth businessman who understands what it takes to be successful in life. Starting his own business while still a college student at the University of San Diego, he’s always been a go-getter. But Seth admits it’s never been an easy road for him. While a student at CWA, he describes himself as an average student who always had to work hard to keep up with his peers. “At CWA it only takes a few hours on the first day to realize your natural limitations,” he says. “I remember students scoring perfect scores on their SATS being a common conversation. I remember hearing about early admittance to Harvard and people testing out of their entire first year in college. That was not me.” Never minding a little hard work, Seth felt that the environment at CWA, which challenges students to do their very best, helped him develop his own ambitious drive.
