    Katherine Shannon
    Name: Katherine Shannon
     
     
    Grade: 12
     
     
    Role Model:  One of my role models is certainly my older sister, Christina. She always has a positive attitude and genuine appreciation for the little things in life, making her an excellent person to look up to.
     
     
    Teacher with the most impact:  The teachers that have had the greatest impact on my education are Ms. McGowan (physics) and Mr. Mullarney (chemistry). Both of these teachers created a comforting and enthusiastic class environment, allowing my classmates and I to actually enjoy every lesson and look forward to attending class.
     
     
    Activities: I am a member of the National Honor Society, the Spanish Club, Students for Animal Welfare, Surfrider, Interact, the Math League, the Great Books Group, and the Conquer Cancer Club   
     
     
    Future Goals/Plans:  I plan to attend college next year to pursue a career in chemical engineering.

    Richard Joyce Name:  Richard Joyce
     
     
    Grade: 11
     
     
    Role Model:  My role model would have to be Derek Jeter.  I say this because he made himself into an amazing baseball player all on his own. In the news, it is common to hear about players who abuse illegal substances like steroids to improve their performance, but Jeter never gave into this mentality and he remained honest throughout his career. His honest hard work is something that everyone should aspire towards.
     
     
    Teacher with the most impact:  Some teachers who have had an impact on me are Mr. Nicol (Math), Mrs. Mazza (Math), Ms. Schmid (Math), Mrs. Burley (History), Mrs. Cook (Biology), and Mrs. Aue (Chemistry). It is extremely hard for me to narrow the list down anymore because each teacher listed makes their class extremely enjoyable while also being able to teach their subject effectively. Each teacher creates a positive environment for their students that makes learning their subjects all the better. I will always remember these teachers for their great teaching techniques and their positive attitudes.
     
     
    Activities:  I am currently involved in Interact, Culture Club, Spanish club, and I am on the Swim team.
     
     
    Future Goals/Plans:  My plans for the future greatly concern the military. I hope to get into a military college and follow in my family's military tradition. I hope to start a career in the field of engineering or in business.
