Favorite memory from high school:
I love to make baked goods, and I always bring them to school to share. My favorite moments of high school were sitting around in class, eating pastries and cakes and watching my classmates fight over cupcakes while covered in crumbs and chocolate like they were 6!
Tell us about the teacher, coach or administrator who made a difference in your life:
Mr. Jacob Clanton has challenged me to be better by making me question my assumptions and expand my thought processes. He has been a sounding board, a good laugh and an advisor to me for three years, inspiring me more than any teacher I have ever had.
