     Elesabeth Racioppi Name:  Elesabeth Racioppi
    Grade: 12
    Role Model:  My role model is my Aunt Angie. She was an incredible person with a never-ending passion for helping anyone who came into her life. As a nurse, she impacted so many people's lives and there isn't a person who met her who didn't remember her warm smile and crazy curls. She is the reason why I want to teach and coach and help as many people in my lifetime I can.
    Teacher with the most impact:  Ms. Cronk has impacted my life throughout my time at Shore as both my teacher and student council adviser. She has given me great advice and has made me laugh in some of the most stressful times in my life. Mr. Labush has also impacted my life greatly as my English and AP psychology teacher. Without his support and guidance, I probably wouldn't be going to Clemson University.
    Activities:  Central Jersey Aquatic Club, Student Council VP, National Honor Society, Shore Swim Captain
    Future Goals/Plans:  I plan to study Secondary Education with a focus in Biology and hopefully work for Teach for America when I graduate. I want to be a high school swim coach, as well.
    Personal Quote:   "Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent." - Calvin Coolidge
    Robert Kallok Name:  Robert "Bobcat" Kallok
    Grade: 12
    Role Model:  My role model is Superman. His ceaseless need to do good and boy scout-morality have always been something I have tried to emulate.
    Teacher with the most impact:  Mr. LaBush, my English and AP Psychology teacher, has had the greatest impact on me as he provided with a unique environment allowing for creativity and self-growth.  In his classes, I have been able to advance my social skills, philosophy and all-around well being.
    Activities:  I am currently involved in CASA, Math League, National Honor Society, and the Boy Scouts as an adult leader.
    Future Goals/Plans:  I would like to study mechanical engineering with a focus in automotive design.  From there I would like to work in Europe for McLaren, Porsche, BMW, or some other European manufacturer.
    Personal Quote:   "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself." - Franklin D. Roosevelt
