Q: What has been your favorite memory of Huron?

A: “My favorite memory so far has been my role in designing and building the two new gardens on Huron’s campus, they were both such large projects that challenged me.”


Q: Who is your favorite teacher you have had over the past four years?

A: “My favorite teacher has been Mr. Schuitman. He is the most energetic and exciting math teacher I’ve had in my 12 years of schooling. He definitely made Precalculus a joy to be in first thing in the morning.”


Q: What is your favorite club you have participated in?

A: “I started a club in my junior year called the Greenhouse Gang. It’s a club where students work to propagate plants, care for the Community Garden on Huron’s campus as well as care for gardens on other campuses.”
