Describe a meaningful experience you had while at Lakeview.
One meaningful experience I had at Lakeview was when we beat Riverside in a last minute victory in football.

How has Lakeview prepared you for your future?
Lakeview has provided me with a good education and life-long friends.

What is your biggest academic accomplishment and why?
My biggest academic accomplishment was getting an almost perfect score on an exam and pulling up my final grade. I also got the Director's List award after a particularly hard junior year.

Teacher, coach or staff member at Lakeview who has made the biggest impact on you:
Without a doubt, Coach Gruhn has made the biggest impact on my life while I've been at Lakeview. He taught me to be a better football player, but also taught me to be a better person.

What will you miss most at Lakeview Academy?
I will miss playing football the most. It has given me so many fun memories and life lessons that I will carry with me always.

Did you participate in anything outside of Lakeview?
I participated in Boy Scouts when I was in Lower School and Young Life in Middle and Upper School. Both taught me a lot and provided me with good friends and mentors.

College you will attend in the fall: Georgia Southern University

College degree or area of study: Business

Other than college, do you have any other plans after high school?
My family is thinking about buying a farm, so if that happens, I plan to help on the farm. I will be helping my dad this summer in his law firm. We also plan to take a fly-fishing trip to Colorado if/when we are able to travel because of the virus.
