What accomplishments at SHS make you the most proud?

Academically, I was inducted into National Honor Society as a junior, I placed first in both the regional and state PJAS competition as a freshman, and finishing in the top ten in the class. Athletically, I was team captain for swimming my junior and senior years and I was captain for softball my senior year. As a junior, I was named Honorable Mention First Base for softball. As a senior, I was named Honorable Mention for swimming and Honorable Mention Catcher for softball.

What was your most memorable learning experience at SHS?

SHS has taught me how to balance my academics and athletics. I have played 2 sports every year during high school and I am planning to play softball in college, so this will be a necessary skill.

What are you doing after graduation?

I am going to Lebanon Valley College where I will study physical therapy. The physical therapy program is a 6 year doctorate program and the undergrad major with be exercise science. I am also going to play softball.

What goals do you have for your future?

I want to become a physical therapist and I am thinking about specializing in pediatrics. Pediatrics ranges from neurological disorders to physical issues, but working with children is something I really want to go into.

How has Salisbury prepared you for that future?

I have gone to Salisbury since kindergarten and my accomplishments at SHS allowed me to be accepted to my first choice college. I am definitely ready for college, thanks to how well my teachers have prepared me throughout high school.

What advice would you offer future seniors?

Senior year is the year to finish strong, but you have to keep up your work ethic.
