What are your plans after high school?

Go to the United States Military Academy and pursue a four-year mechanical engineering degree and eventually become an officer in the US Army


What is your passion in life? 


To get as much dad lore as humanly possible


How do you judge a person?


How they treat others


What is your greatest accomplishment so far?


Being a varsity letter winner for the Swim Team since freshman year


Which countries/places would you like to visit?


I want to go to the Swiss Alps on a ski trip


What was your favorite class in SHS?


Advanced Fitness with Mr Perry is my favorite


What movie/show could you never get tired of watching?


Any Brad Pitt movie


What is the most important lesson you have learned?


The best victories are earned not given; the victories you earn from hard work and dedication are much sweeter than the ones given.


What would you do if you only had 24 hours left to live?


I would visit family and end the day on a long hike through the woods


Who are your favorite teachers and why?

My favorite teachers of all time have to be Mr. Meckes, Mrs. Brown, Mr. Perry, and Mrs. Haubrich. In my opinion, the best teachers are teachers that you can relate to and have conversations with about things other than school. I think that it’s those types of conversations and relations that improve everyone’s day-to-day life.
