Regan Cook '19

Regan Cook ’19 planned a busy summer after her sophomore year.

First, she rowed for the Pennsylvania Athletic Rowing Association, a competitive racing experience that prepares athletes for collegiate and national level competition. Following her one-month stint on the Schuylkill, Cook began her Summer Signature Experience at the Southern Oral History Program at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

“History has become one of my passions ever since I took Modern Global History my sophomore year,” said Cook. “My Summer Signature Experience at UNC allowed me to explore my favorite subject as well as a part of the country that holds a special place in my heart. I spent a lot of time growing up with my dad’s family in small-town Alabama.”

Cook is involved in a variety of activities at Peddie. She’s one of a select group of student ambassadors for the Office of Alumni and Development and is a member of Peddie crew. Cook said, “I want to get as involved as I can at Peddie. I want to make the most out of my time here.”

When reflecting on the Armellino Scholarship that brought her to Peddie, Cook said, “I would not have been able to attend Peddie without the kind of financial support that Walter Annenberg inspired and that has continued with the generosity of those like Mr. Armellino.”

“Being at Peddie is the best thing that has ever happened to me, she added. “I’ll never stop being grateful for this opportunity.”
