FAVORITE MEMORY FROM HIGH SCHOOL
The summer before my senior year, I traveled with many of my friends to central Europe. During these two weeks, I made memories that I'll cherish for the rest of my life.
THE TEACHER WHO MADE A DIFFERENCE
One teacher who has made a difference in my life is Dr. Bruce Hall, my sophomore and senior history teacher. He taught me how to consider a new or opposing belief objectively and to think independently.
