Enjoy life and do what you can for yourself and most importantly, others

Share your best advice for incoming freshmen.

What or who do you account for your academic success and ranking in the top 2 percent of your senior class? 
My youth group, family, and friends. They push me to be better and to work hard.

What are you learning about yourself and the world as we collectively face this global pandemic?
Not to take education or school for granted. Despite school sometimes feeling like an inconvenience, it is an opportunity to learn about yourself, the world, and what you can do to make things better. Be respectful and grateful for school, especially since others don't have the same opportunities.
