What is the most influential book you have read besides the Bible? Why?
The most influential book I have read at Geneva has been Silence. This was a book we read in Worldview and the reason it made such an impact on me was because it was a story of people who lived a life for Christ and in doing so, they would die for him as well. This book taught me that as Christians we need to stand firm in what we believe and know the God we worship has a bigger and greater plan than we will ever see and we must drop all things and follow Him and follow His guidance because He is good.
What is your favorite or funniest moment at Geneva?
My funniest moment at Geneva would be in Mr. Harrild’s study hall freshmen year. I was obsessed with yo-yos and attempting stand-up comedy, so I decided to put on a show for our study hall.
What will you miss most when you leave Geneva?
I will miss the small family community we have at Geneva probably the most. Being able to walk into any classroom and have a unique relationship with all the teachers and being able to know each and every student, I just think is something you don’t find everywhere.
Who has influenced you most while at Geneva, How?
The person that has influenced me the most would be Coach Wright. She always pushed me to be more than I was the day before, she continued to radiate a positivity that was impossible not to start to get. She always showed me how to find the good in all things and through all that you could see Christ in her everyday life and I always thought that was so special.
What does being a Geneva student mean to you?
Being a Geneva student means you are willing to put in the hard work. Someone who can be held accountable for anything. A student who comes in knowing the standards and challenges Geneva has to offer and then facing those challenges and going above and beyond. A Geneva student is someone who loves the Lord and is proud to be at a school that represents Him.
How would you encourage a Geneva kindergartner to persevere?
I would tell a Kindergartner that they must be willing to put in work and it’s not going to be easy. But I would also tell them to use their resources because all the teachers want their students to succeed and to cherish each and every moment.
What about Geneva do you hope never changes?
I hope the community that has been created never changes no matter how big the school gets. I hope that every kid that goes into Geneva gets to experience the same type of community I had for 13 years.
