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

Will Langenbahn (Class of 2018) has influenced me the most on and off the field or court. He is a great example of how to be a great leader and not to hold back on anything in life. My coaches have also influenced me to work hard and be a good teammate.

I would encourage a kindergartner at Geneva to use the lessons they learn about perseverance in Grammar School P.E. Remember “We’re winners not whiners.” Listen to your coach because she is the best one out there.

What about Geneva do you hope never changes?
I hope the family camaraderie and tight community never changes here at Geneva. I also hope the ability to form relationships across all different grade levels continues. I loved the AIM program as a Grammar student and as I participate in it as a Rhetoric student.
