Sunshine Pugh

portrait of sunshine pugh

Sunshine is a current undergraduate student at Connecticut College in New London, CT, and an Asheville native and graduate of Odyssey. She has been working with kids either in summer camps or as an ultimate frisbee coach since 2016. She is planning to major in art and education with the possibility of a minor in botany. Her favorite mediums are collage, drawing, painting, and jewelry making but is truly happy indulging in and teaching any form of art.
Most of the time, Sunshine is either throwing herself into her course work, spending long hours in the sculpture studio as a tutor, or on the ultimate frisbee field. Hiking, spending time with friends and family, learning, artwork, and social justice are some of her greatest passions.

She led summer workshops for young dancers, choreographed for the company, and acted as the Young Children’s Coordinator for the ballet’s school.

Sam loves the team she and Shirley have formed in kindergarten and is excited for another great year. She values compassion, humor, and creativity in the classroom.  In her free time Sam dances as a soloist with the Asheville Ballet, teaches dance, and loves to paint and hike.
