Senior Spotlight

What is the most influential book you have read besides the Bible? Why?
The Iliad is probably the most influential book I have read at Geneva. It was cool to be able to read an ancient piece of literature that had been preserved for so many years. It also showed me that I was capable of reading such a giant book that I never thought I would be able to finish. 

What is your favorite or funniest moment at Geneva?
One of my favorite moments was when we had a Christmas party in Mr. Harrild’s room freshman year. We brought decorations from home and decorated his entire room. We also brought Christmas cookies and eggnog, and for some reason Mr. Harrild had a Bob Ross toaster, so of course we made Bob Ross toast.

What will you miss most when you leave Geneva?
I will definitely miss my friends and the community that we have on campus. It’s so nice to have a community where everyone has the opportunity to be so close with each other.

Who has influenced you most while at Geneva? How?
Mr. Bradshaw has influenced me the most. He has such a strong relationship with God and is always joyful. He always encouraged the class to find joy in any circumstance and that has helped me a lot throughout high school.

What does being a Geneva student mean to you?
Being a Geneva student means getting to use my talents and abilities to give glory to God, and to show others the awesomeness and glory of God through the abilities that he has given me.

How would you encourage a Geneva kindergartner to persevere in school?
I would tell kindergartners that they are so blessed to get to go to a school like Geneva where the teachers all care about you so much and you can build such close relationships with your classmates, and I would remind them to never take that for granted.

What about Geneva do you hope never changes?
I hope that Geneva can keep its fun spirit, all the spirit days, football games, house inductions, and quidditch matches are something that I will always remember, and I hope Geneva can keep these events forever.
