Parents: Peter and Courtney Travares

College or other plans: Vanderbilt University

Plans after college: After college I plan on researching genetic disease and designing mechanisms that I hope one day will aid in cures. I will be approaching biological research from a different perspective by obtaining a PhD in Biomedical Engineering.

What is the memory of high school you will never forget: I will never forget my senior trip to Florida. On the trip I had the opportunity to become really close with some old elementary and middle school friends. It truly was an unforgettable experience to go to Disney world, universal, and the beach with most of our graduating class.

Which teacher had the biggest impact on you and why: Mr. Connealy, my current AP biology teacher and Independent Research Teacher, has had a tremendous impact on me. I have had Mr. Connealy as a teacher for 3 years and he has consistently been attentive to my endless curiosity. He has inspired me to pursue a career related to both biology and research.
