What is the most influential book you have read besides the Bible? Why?

What is your favorite or funniest moment at Geneva?
Last year during homecoming, right around half-time, Alyssa, a friend, and I walked to the gym. On the way back, we took the wrong path and almost got nailed by the tunnel of players running back to the locker room. Just in time we ran behind an old portable overcome with laughter!
What will you miss most when you leave Geneva?
I will miss the wooden boardwalk, giant trees, and smiling teachers holding their doors open!
