What does being a Geneva student mean to you?
Being a Geneva student means persevering through adversity. It means furthering your walk with the Lord around in the company of other believers. It’s working harder than most people at any given time in sports and in school. It means spending time with families and friends and getting to know the deeper side of them.

How would you encourage a Geneva kindergartner to persevere?
My encouragement to a kindergartener would be to keep your priorities straight. God, family, school and sports. Many things and activities will be pulling for your time as you grow up. Some will be easy, and some will be hard and not fun. Make sure you know the Lord and that He is in control. Your family is there for you to help you along the way and they love you. Invest in friends and grow those relationships.
What about Geneva do you hope never changes?
I hope the ability to have fun never changes at Geneva. Some of my most favorite moments have been doing the things that a normal high school would never do. Some of the most random and spontaneous things have been the most memorable.
