Name: Matt Cosentino
Role Model: My role models are my parents, great people, always there for me and ofcourse, my biggest fans. On the field and in the classroom they help me to be the best person I could be. I love them so much and appreciate everything they do for me. Whether it's my Mom helping me to get an edge in the classroom by showing me the right way or the endless time with my Dad at the cages getting better and better everyday.
Teacher with the most impact: Mr. Labush simply because he pushed me to be the best student I could be.
Activities: Soccer, Basketball, Baseball, Interact, Ping Pong Club, The Annoucements and Sports Involvement Club
Future Goals/Plans: To play baseball at a Division 1 school and to become a news anchor or sports broadcaster. Doing the announcements has led me to a profesion I never really imagined studying.
Personal Quote: The difference between school and life? In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you're given a test that teaches you a lesson. - Tom Bodett
Name: Kiralee Knotts
Role Model: My role model is my sister, Eilea Knotts. She is definitely the leader I want to be someday. She is always there for me, no matter how far away she is, and I know that without her, I would not have grown into the person I am today.
Teacher(s) with the most impact: The teacher that has had the most impact on me is Shore Regional High School history teacher, Mr. Ker. While history may not be my strongest subject, Mr. Ker simply taught me how to be myself and to not look at others as if I have to live up to their expectations, inside and outside of high school. His constant optimism in the classroom helps me set my own mood for the rest of my day, and even though sometimes his jokes come off a little rough, they have helped me build character. Under his guidance I pulled through some of the most difficult points in my life and now I always look up to him as someone I know I can rely on.
Activities: Currently I am involved in the National Honor Society, Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore, and the Shore Regional Marching Band and Jazz Band.
Future Goals/Plans: In my future I plan on graduating from the University of New Hampshire with a degree in Marine, Estuary, and Freshwater Biology. I hope to someday earn a Doctorate degree and to be working for the Discovery Channel doing underwater research and photography.
Quote: Mistakes are always a part of learning, but never be afraid to ask for help. If you don't, you may find that it will be harder to reach your true potential, and harder to find who you really want yourself to be.
