NFA P-TECH Scholar and Girls Basketball Player, Ameesah Cotten Headed to Study Public Health


Ameesah Cotten, a key member of the Newburgh Free Academy girls’ basketball team will attend Colby-Sawyer College, where she will study public health.
 
“Colby-Sawyer neighbors Mount Kearsarge, resulting in a great view,” Cotten said. “Also, the public health program is very successful.” Colby-Sawyer’s public health program prepares students to help individuals and communities live safe and productive lives through disease prevention, wellness promotion and emergency preparedness.
 
Ameesah is part of NFA’s P-tech program, which aims to have students career ready by the time they graduate. She has her high school diploma, as well as a two-year degree, all of which she accomplished in four years.
 
On the court, she was the glue that held the Goldbacks together. She wasn’t a strong force in the scorebook, but she helped the team in ways that don’t show up in the scorebook, averaging 11 rebounds per game.
 
“All the girls respected her,” Santana said. “There was not one negative thing the other girls could say about Ameesah. When you needed something done, Ameesah would take care of it.”
