What is the most influential book you have read besides the Bible? Why?
I would say the most influential book I have read is Silence. The expectation versus the reality of preaching the Gospel around the world portrayed in the book changed my perspective on ministry, and how we should go about it.
What is your favorite or funniest moment at Geneva?
My favorite moment was being thrown over my older brother’s shoulder like a sack of potatoes while getting inducted into Milton!
What will you miss most when you leave Geneva?
I will miss all the friendships I’ve made. Thankfully, many of these great people will be lifelong friends.
Who has influenced you most while at Geneva, How?
Dr. Bracy influenced me the most. He always came to support sports games, performances, and whatever we were up to. He was so present in all of our lives and made sure we knew the most important thing he’d ever teach us in his class was to have a relationship with Jesus…and to “Walk On.”
What does being a Geneva student mean to you?
It means being:
a servant-to one another and to a lifetime of learning,
a leader-representing Christ wherever we are, setting an example of love and
keeper of the culture-from the inside out, influencing the world for His Kingdom.
How would you encourage a Geneva kindergartner to persevere in school?
Follow the nail trail… just kidding. I would encourage a kindergartener to make hard things fun. Hebrews 12:2 says that “for the joy set before Jesus, he endured the cross.” Jesus showed us how to do hard things!
What about Geneva do you hope never changes?
I hope that the culture of honor never changes. It is instilled into us from day 1 in Grammar school with some extrinsic motivation, but by high school the intrinsic, self-governance takes over and honor is part of who we are.
