Class of 2022: Madelyn Pinnow ’22

We celebrate the Class of 2022, what they have achieved during their years at Ripon and what they hope to achieve in the next chapter of their lives.

Madelyn Pinnow ’22 of Ripon, Wisconsin, majored in education with a minor in English. She plans to find a position teaching middle school English/language arts.

“The most important lesson I will take away from Ripon College is to make new friends and memories,” she says. “My friends and family have surrounded me throughout all of my education. Ripon College gave me the opportunity to develop more relationships in a place that I call home.”

She says her special memory from Ripon College is one that will take place soon — her mother, Ripon College food service worker Dani Pinnow, presenting her with her diploma as she walks across the stage at Commencement.
