Tyler O'Boyle '21

Franklin & Marshall College

“I believe I have impacted Norfolk Academy through my time spent on the Honor Council and being a captain of the wrestling team. My time on Honor Council has allowed me to set a good example for my fellow Bulldogs. My time as the wrestling team captain has allowed me to connect with younger Bulldogs and build strong relationships with them.”

Most Meaningful Activity
I enjoyed playing on the football team during my time at NA. Great group of coaches and players.

On Campus Memories
Even though it hasn't happened in person this year, morning chapel is a great tradition. It is so unique for a school to meet together every morning. It adds to the school's atmosphere.

Reflections on Learning
My favorite classroom experience was doing activities in psychology. One day we went to the gym and shot basketballs with vision distorting goggles.

The Academy Difference
Norfolk Academy has made me a harder worker, and taught me to use my time wisely and get things done. My time at NA has pushed me to be as productive as possible and cherish every moment.
