What is the most influential book you have read besides the Bible? Why?
The Hiding Place was such an incredible book when we read it in 8th grade. Since it was a completely true story it held important values and hard stories that are so essential to learn about.
What is your favorite or funniest moment at Geneva?
On our bus ride home from Waco, choir sang the piece we competed with called “Let the River Run.” We didn’t sound very good but it didn’t matter because we loved the song itself and the music we could create.
What will you miss most when you leave Geneva?
I will definitely miss choir the most. We have become a family over the years, and I will miss creating surreal music with all of them.
Who has influenced you most while at Geneva? How?
So many Geneva teachers have made a difference in my life. Among them were Mr. Vis for believing in me even when I never did, Mr. Johnson for always answering all of my questions (even the irrelevant ones), and Mrs. Hammock for pushing me beyond anything I ever thought I could do.
What does being a Geneva student mean to you?
A Geneva student means accomplishing anything you set your mind to, big or small, with a smile on your face and encouraging others to do the same.
How would you encourage a Geneva kindergartener to persevere in school?
I would tell them to pursue the things they are passionate about and to never hold anything back. Geneva offers so many amazing opportunities even though we are a small school, so don’t waste a moment!
What about Geneva do you hope never changes?
I hope all the fun and silly days we have stay the same. Induction day should always scare the new students in a good way. Ships and Sailors should always be played at retreat, and Grammar field day should always have snow cones.
