FAVORITE MEMORY FROM HIGH SCHOOL
One of my favorite memories from Mount would have to be my senior class dance number at the opening pep rally earlier this year. It felt incredible to be able to celebrate reaching my senior year with the rest of my class, and the way in which we bonded while preparing for our "Surf's Up" themed dance was something that I will always cherish.
THE TEACHER WHO MADE A DIFFERENCE
The teacher who has had the largest impact on my growth throughout high school is Mr. Eric Carden. I find that Mr. Carden’s enthusiasm for the pursuit of knowledge pushes me to be the best version of myself, and I feel fortunate to have had him as a teacher.
