Influential educators: Many teachers have influenced me throughout my high school career, but I’d especially thank Mr. (Jonathon) Maple and Mrs. (Janey) Stephens for taking some of the pressure of school work off and teaching me that it’s important to enjoy life or your success isn’t really worth anything.
Big award: Through a lot of hard work and a little luck, I received the Lilly Endowment Scholarship for Ripley County.
Hobbies:I’m a game maker. I’ve made board games, video games, sport variations. My older brother and I work together to create a game for my whole family to play and, hopefully, we will put one of these games on the market one day.
American issue: My biggest concerns ... are the economic and moral crises occurring, such as the debt crisis and abortion crisis. I find it shocking that so many people are capable of ignoring these issues that will imminently lead to the destruction of our society. It’s somewhat frightening.
