What is the memory of high school you will never forget: I will never forget receiving the Spirit of Music Award on senior awards night. This award was created in honor of our beloved choral director, Mr. Renzi, who retired in 2021 and his legacy he left on the school. We were all extremely excited to see him return to present the award to the recipient. It was an honor to receive the award from him.

Which teacher had the biggest impact on you and why: Mrs. Mattice as my teacher for both English 10 and Creative Writing. She has worked hard to create an inviting and encouraging environment. Mrs. Mattice has helped me to rediscover my love of writing and understand that learning is about more than just a grade.
