School(s) attended K-8: Homeschooled and St. Teresa Catholic Elementary School
Favorite place on campus: I enjoy a lot of places at Pius X. The main one is the chapel. It is a quiet place to clear your head and prepare for the rest of the day. Another place is the library, especially the free books section which I found out about last week. I like to sit next to the LPAC when I have lunch with friends or in the commons to eat lunch, it varies by day. I also like to sit on the swing outside and relax.
Activities at Pius X: Honor Guard, Altar server, Aviation Club, Chess Club, Ambassadors, Table leader at the guys retreat, Group leader at the freshman orientation, and St. Nick helper.
What is/was your favorite class at Pius X, and why?
I think everyone who took Physics with Mr. Cox can agree that it was the best class!! I mean, think about it….Flaming books, home made merry-go-rounds, the beginning of the world’s largest gumball, dropping eggs off of bridges, and getting to hold granite during a lockdown….How can you beat that?!?
How has your faith impacted your education, or how has your education impacted your faith?
Pius X is teaching the whole person, not just the brain, but the soul as well. Being able to receive the sacraments and learning Theology during a school day has helped me to follow God, one step at a time, and appreciate the people he puts in my path. If I didn’t receive the sacraments and didn’t take Theology, I don’t even want to think about where I would be.
What are you most proud of about your time at Pius X?
I am most proud of my increase in knowledge, being able to retain it, and selectively using it when I need it.
Where are your plans after high school (college, military, job, etc.)? What do you plan to study?
I will attend the University of Nebraska, Lincoln in the fall. I have been accepted into the College of Engineering for Mechanical Engineering. I also plan to minor in Aerospace Engineering and Art. In the future, I hope to design air and space craft or future cars, and probably become a comic book designer on the side.
