37. David Ingram (La Chât 2002)

Posted By Alumni Office, lundi 6 octobre 2014
David Ingram1. How long did you spend at Ecolint?
Five years, 9th to 13th grade, at La Chât.

2. How did you come to attend Ecolint in the first place?

I came from a UK boarding school for Dyslexia. We lived in the region and La Chât had a better special needs programme for my Dyslexia.

3. Which teacher had the biggest impact on you and how?
Teresa Nunn in the special needs department helped me through La Chât. Her help, guidance and confidence-building support helped shape me to who I am today.

4. What was your favourite spot on campus and why?
The original drum room and music room in La Ferme was where most of the magic happened; I look back on that with great fondness.

5. What was your favourite place in the wider region, and why?
The old town in Nyon, for all the fun times we had after school hours.

6. Describe your life today, where you live and what you do.
I live in Charlotte, North Carolina, with my wife, two kids and four cats. Working for the same company for the past 12 years.

7. What should be Ecolint's top priority as it approaches its 100th anniversary?
Keep offering top quality teaching.

8. What "words of wisdom" would you pass on to today's Ecolint students?

It's not all about university. Go if you can, but if you don’t it's not the end of the world. Many great people have thrived without going down the university path. Don’t waste your education.

9. What has been the biggest impact of your Ecolint education on your life?
The friendships which I made at Ecolint have been amazing. I am still incontact with most of the people I went to school with and it was a great experience. Also, the high quality of education, which I appreciate more now than I did at the time.
