What are your post-graduate plans (i.e., college, workforce, etc.)?
My post-graduate plans include me enlisting in the Army as an active solider. My job will be in the medical field mostly because my future occupation includes me in a hospital setting.
Which Mount Vernon schoolteacher has influenced you the most, and why?
Mr. Sgobbo, mainly because he made me feel that no matter what I do in life I’ll always find my way with a little hard work and dedication.
What is your favorite memory from your senior year?
My favorite memory from senior year would have to be when we took senior photos; this is one of my favorite memories because my friends and I were able to show our amazing bond through images that would last forever.
If you could tell your freshman self-one thing, what would it be?
If I could tell my freshman self one thing it would be “Stay strong and just know that all of your friends are not there for your benefit.”
How would you describe the Class of 2020?
I would describe the Class of 2020 as determined because even under these circumstances we have made it through and graduated. None of this was easy because we all had the same desire to graduate. We made it through and that’s a good thing.
