Name: RJ Bohnert
Role Model: My role model ever since being a little kid is Michael Jordan. Michael Jordan came from being cut from his high school basketball team to being the greatest that ever played the game of basketball. He made it known to me that anything is possible and to never give up on your goals. He also taught me to work hard at everything I do because what I put into it is what I will get out of my actions.
Teacher with the most impact:
Ms Schmid and Ms Fagen are two teachers that have impacted my time in high school tremendously. Ms Schmid pushed me to my limits in Geo/Trig showing me there is so much room for improvement and getting me interested in mathematics. Ms Fagen's knowledge of the body inspired me to study in her class and learn more so I can grow up explaining these complicated processes she tells us in class. My plan is to major in physical therapy so this knowledge would be very helpful in pursuing my career.
Activities: Basketball (captain), Baseball (captain), Fellowship of Christian Athletes, National Honor Society, Sports Involvement Club,
Future Goals/Plans: My goal is to pursue my academic as well as my athletics at a certain 4-year college. I plan on majoring in kinesiology and making a career out of that major as a physical therapist or athletic trainer.

Role Model: My sister, Olivia, is my role model. More than that however, she is my best friend. Since I was little, I have looked up to her and have tried to emulate her sophistication and her level of dedication to her future. I believe that I am the person I am today because of the influence that she had on me.
Teacher(s) with the most impact: Mrs. Minze, my Italian teacher for 3 of my 4 years of language, has made an impact on me throughout my time at Shore. Her class has not only taught me a language that I most recently put to use on a two week trip through Italy, but has also made me a more well rounded and knowledgeable person. Her class has taught me to be culturally aware and to be more open to learning about topics from around the world that impact us as students and as US citizens. I know that when I leave Shore, I will always have the important language skills and cultural knowledge from Mrs. Minze’s class to look back on and put to use in my college career.
Activities: In school, I am involved in the Shore Players drama and musicals, The Shore Regional Marching Blue Devils and National Honor Society. Outside of school, I am involved in the Tower Hill First Presbyterian Church Bell Choir, two different life guarding jobs in the local area and The Red Bank Roller Vixens roller derby team.
Future Goals/Plans: In the fall, I will be attending American University in Washington, DC.
