IB Alumni Feature

IB 2

The 10th WOHS cohort group began the IB Diploma Program at the beginning of the 2019-20 school year.  To celebrate this significant milestone, we would like to highlight WOHS IB alumni.  This month, we are featuring Lucy Davis.  Lucy graduated in 2012 and she completed all of the requirements of the IB Diploma Program.  Lucy graduated in 2016 with a B.A. in Global Studies from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  She is currently an English Teacher at Inlingua Language School in Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg, Europe.  When asked to reflect on her IB experience, Lucy stated the following, “IB gave me relationships with teachers and classmates that I still have today.  IB gave me academic tools that made college much easier: critical skills, the ability to cope with large amounts of writing assignments, an emphasis on properly citing sources, public speaking practice, knowledge of a foreign language, and business basics.  I’m discovering that IB is a portable degree. In Luxembourg, there are different types of high schools, which makes it complicated to translate an American diploma into its European equivalent.  IB is recognized worldwide.”
