Throughout her time at Whitman, Anna Allgeyer ’22 demonstrated a passion for climate activism and service. In her postgraduate fellowship with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Allgeyer worked on the frontlines of change.

I know that the opportunities and connections I made through Whitman have and will continue to have a positive effect on my life as an alumna.
