Fenwick Graduation: 2016

Hometown: Western Springs

Current Major: Undecided possibly Oceanography or Ocean Engineering (majors are declared Spring of first year).

Fenwick achievements/activities: Varsity Swimming. I placed in the top 10 in the state in the 200 freestyle and 100 butterfly.

What Fenwick Teacher had the most influence on you:

Ms. Marcotte greatly influenced me because she taught me how to dissect stories and worked to develop me into a stronger writer.

Junior year Moral Theology was very valuable because I learned lessons that I can apply to my life outside of the classroom. 

Best Fenwick experience/the one you would like to live again:

My best Fenwick experience was my junior year swim season. We saw a season’s worth of hard work pay off when we swam fast at the state meet.
