Alumni Spotlight

 

Abby Johnston, Class of 2007, 2012 Olympic Silver Medalist in Diving and 2016 Olympic Team USA Diver

Notable achievements at UAHSThe diver in front of the American Flag wearing an Olympic medal

I was a member of the varsity swim and dive team for 3 years (2004-2007), and, as a team, we won the state championships all 3 years.

College experience

I am starting my third year of medical school at Duke University and plan to go into emergency medicine.

How did UA prepare her for success?

Growing up in Upper Arlington was very formative for my academic and athletic success. UA has a tradition of excellence both in and out of the classroom. The community helped foster my work ethic, which ultimately allowed me to pursue my dreams of going to the Olympics and becoming a doctor. I wouldn't be the person I am today without the support and encouragement of the Upper Arlington community.
