What is the most influential book you have read besides the Bible? Why?
The most influential book I’ve read is probably Lord of the Flies. It’s been a while since I’ve read it but I really enjoyed it and it made me think a lot.
What is your favorite or funniest moment at Geneva?
My favorite memory is probably freshman year in Mr. Harrild’s class, we were reading Oedipus and we took turns reading out loud. There was a line that said, “lips that never lie” and Annie Ramsey was reading really fast and accidentally said “hips that never lie”.
What will you miss most when you leave Geneva?
I’ll definitely miss how invested and interested all the teachers are, and how they genuinely care about all of us.
Who has influenced you most while at Geneva, How?
I think Mrs. Gachupin has influenced me the most, she’s very selfless and constantly goes out of her way to do things for me and the other kids in the orchestra. She’s done many things for us, often spending her own time and money on us. She bought the music theory class end of the year gifts and spent a lot of time driving to our houses delivering them and any music we needed for orchestra and she’s always bringing us treats like donuts and candy. She’s really generous, selfless and kind and I’d like to be more like her.
What does being a Geneva student mean to you?
To me it means setting a Christ-like example for others to see and hopefully want a relationship with Christ after seeing the way he works in our lives.
How would you encourage a Geneva kindergartner to persevere in school?
I would tell them to enjoy their time as much as they can, it goes by so fast. I would also tell them that it’s not as hard as it seems, it’s all doable as long as you don’t fall behind your work
What about Geneva do you hope never changes?
I hope the community never changes, everyone is close, more so than most schools.
