Favorite High School Memory: When the Bishop Eustace Robotics Team attended the 2017 FIRST Robotics World Championship held in St. Louis.  The 2017 season was the first time our team had truly excelled in competition, ranking 8 out of 120 in the Mid-Atlantic district, and qualified for the Championship, which included teams from 35 countries.  As a Mechanical Engineering Major, the many lessons in collaboration, design, time management, etc. will be invaluable in the years to come.

Advice for incoming freshmen: Don’t get caught up in what you think high school is “supposed to be.” It is what you make of it. If you keep Jesus at the center, I promise things will turn out beyond what you can ever imagine. When it gets tough—and it will—turn to your faith. When things are going great—and they will be—turn to your faith. Always make sure that at the end of the day you can look in the mirror and recognize the person staring back at you.
