FAIS Alumna Shares Passions and Experiences this Summer
Posted 06/01/2018 12:00AM
Even beyond her upcoming graduation and starting college in the fall, FAIS alumna Pirrie Wright has a lot on her plate. For two years, she has worked as a children's yoga instructor, and last year, she started a business selling custom, homemade aromatherapy blends. This summer, Pirrie will return to FAIS for her third year teaching in the School's summer programs. One week, she will use her passion for wellness and sustainability to help middle school students craft their own bath and beauty products to create their own spa day in Summerfest's Handmade Bath and Beauty (August 6-10). Following that, she will help prepare Maternelle students for their return to FAIS in Le Summer Camp's Reprenons Nos Habitudes (August 13-17).

Pirrie attended FAIS for preschool through 5th grade and then Gilkey for 6th through 8th. She will graduate in June from Lincoln High School. In the fall, she will head to Evergreen State College where she plans to study psychology and sustainability.
