Will Conte '17
Princeton University
Will worked closely with Millbrook faculty in planning for and growing Millbrook’s farm over the past four years, and he takes great pride in having helped transform the grassy landscape on the north campus into the well-organized, beautiful, and bountiful agricultural space that it is today. Focusing on sustainability initiatives that could be carried on by other students, Will brought bees to campus, helped establish the new colonies, and created a program that will continue to provide honey for the dining hall indefinitely. His ambitions led him to Princeton, where he plans to major in political science or philosophy and minor in “an inspiring environmental science program.” He feels perfectly prepared for new challenges, empowered with critical writing skills honed by master teachers like Mr. Zeiser. Will is ready to advocate for what he is passionate about, and he hopes to leave other important legacies beyond Millbrook.
