His favorite teacher: I can easily say my Junior Year AP Language and Composition teacher, Laura Hancq, has been the best teacher and mentor I’ve ever had. Although I only had Ms. Hancq for a year, she taught me more about literature and creative expression than I could’ve ever asked for. Ms. Hancq is the kind of teacher who is in it for more than a paycheck; she is genuinely invested in the lives of her students and wants nothing more than to see them succeed beyond their wildest dreams. For everything she has taught me, I thank her with all my heart.
High School Activities: Tennis, Art Club, National Honor Society, Forensics
Plans for the Fall: Rowan University, Glassboro, with a Major in Electrical and Computer Engineering.

High School Activities: Soccer, Swimming, Crusader Chorale, Art Club
Plans for the Fall: University of Delaware Nursing Program
What she appreciates most about going to a Catholic high school: I appreciate that we are able to learn about religion and participate in mass. I grew up going to public school and it was a welcome change when I got to a Catholic high school.
