Most Meaningful Activity
Athletics, specifically soccer and tennis.
My involvement in sports has been life changing. The relationships I have with Coach Duquette and Coach Wetmore are ones I treasure deeply, and the lessons I've learned regarding discipline, teamwork, and mental strength have been crucial to my development as a person.

Reflections on Learning
Dr. Kidd teaches in a unique way where students end up fascinated by the material. Listening to him read to us in class while we drew whatever came to mind was really cool. He reads stories in a way that makes them come to life. He is the singular reason I have a renewed love for reading and English.

Looking Back
My conversations with Mr. Laws throughout middle school helped me learn countless lessons. After I did anything of questionable judgement he used his unparalleled capacity for empathy and knowledge of children to help me learn a lesson without blowback.

Looking Ahead
I look forward to pursuing the study of philosophy, politics, and economics at college. I am passionate about people and forging relationships with all sorts of different individuals. I like to push the boundaries of my comfort zone and look forward to being part of a new community.

The thing that most makes me a Bulldog is… my love for being part of a community that truly cares for all its members and yearns to see them excel.
