Share your best advice for incoming freshmen:

Getting involved in sports and activities during your freshman year is so important in creating a support system for the next 4 years! Give your own personal best effort academically, and don't be afraid to ask for help when you need it.

What or who do you acknowledge for your academic success, and ranking in the top 2 percent of your senior class?

I attribute my academic success to my hard work, commitment to always giving my full effort, and my excitement to learn new things. My success is also reflective of the supportive and encouraging people and teachers in my life, specifically my family, friends, Ms. Cabrera, Mr. Towry, Ms. Smith, Mr. Hess, and Mr. Pennington.

What life lessons or observations have you gained about yourself, and the world, during the 2020-21 school year?
