Colby Smith

Amherst College, BA, MA, 2016
APPOINTED: 2016

Science, Soccer, Skiing/Snowboarding, Dorm Parent.

A former member of Amherst College’s champion football teams, Colby now deploys his intellectual talents in Winchendon’s classrooms, dorms, and sports. Whether it is in the classroom, in the dorm, or on the playing field, this southern football player has an innate and empowering knack for helping his students believe in themselves. However, while he tranquilly goes about performing his academic duties, on the tennis court faculty members should expect a cannonball of a serve. Winchendon is lucky that this southerner has taken a liking to the Northeast.
