Michelle Konkoly - Class of 2010

Posted by Methacton School District on 8/26/2021


Our inaugural inductee into the Superintendent’s Alumni Spotlight is Michelle Konkoly.

Michelle is a 2010 graduate of Methacton High School, and currently a first-year Resident Doctor at DuPont Children's Hospital. This two-time High School All-American in Swimming, Swim Team Captain, and National High School Honor Society inductee credits Methacton AP Biology teacher Jeremy Walton for igniting her love of Biology. Michelle credits Methacton teacher and Swim Coach Ben Yoder for teaching her how to compete, which ultimately led to swimming at Georgetown University and later becoming a member of the Team USA Paralympic Team. When asked what advice she has for students at Methacton, Michelle says she encourages students take advantage of the many curricular and extra-curricular opportunities that Methacton offers such as our various competitive sports teams, AP classes, clubs, technical school, theater, and music.

Having competed in the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games for Team USA and winning four medals (two Gold, one Silver and one Bronze), she now finds herself in the national spotlight once again – as a commentator for NBC in the Tokyo Paralympic Games, beginning on August 24, 2021. While we will celebrate as we get to see an alum featured on a national stage, I am certain that we will continue to see many great things from Michelle Konkoly as she pursues her career in medicine.
