Yearbook 10-12th grade- Junior and Senior EditorDescribe a meaningful experience you had while at Lakeview
I think something meaningful that Lakeview has provided in my life is the close-knit family-like atmosphere that has allowed me to create friendships with people as young as Kindergarten. I loved walking from the high school to the WAC everyday because all the littles kids who were playing at recess would come up to the gate and say “hi emmakate!” small things like that were so meaningful throughout the school year.How has Lakeview prepared you for your future?
One thousand percent I agree that Lakeview has prepared me for the future. I think academically Mrs. Marcero has made the entire class of 2020 ready for college and all the teachers have prepped us for classes in college. It has made the college planning and accepting process so much easier.What is your biggest academic accomplishment and why?
I think probably completing the yearbook, considering all the other outside commitments I had at the same time. We, as a group, finally finished the book and it is something I will forever be proud of.Teacher, coach or staff member at Lakeview who has made the biggest impact on you
Coach Gruhn, Coach Simpson, Mrs. Chittaro, and Mrs. Marcero have made the biggest impact on me as a person because they have always shown me what matters most and kept my pathway lighted bright with all the upcoming possibilities of my future. They also pushed me to do my best in every aspect of a student, not just academically but as a genuinely good person.What will you miss most at Lakeview Academy?
I will definitely miss the people and small family-like atmosphere that Lakeview provides us.
Did you participate in anything outside of Lakeview?
I did Work Crew for Younglife in the summer, I was a server for Southwind’s camp for Capernaum and WyldLife kids. This was such a rewarding experience because it taught me how to put the Lord and others before myself.
Belle Candidate Junior League of Hall/Gainesville for 2018-2019 school year (50 plus service hours). I loved doing this because it opened my eyes to a bunch of organizations and charities in Gainesville that I did not even know existed. This allowed me to learn and give to these organizations all at once.
Younglife has also been probably the biggest and most life changing thing I have done in high school because it has established new friendships, kept my old friendships fresh, and taught me the most important life lessons. It made a difference in my life because it has shown me the desire of working with kids with special needs I did not even know I had.
College you will attend in the fall: Georgia Southern University
College degree or area of study: Exercise Science
Other than college, do you have any other plans after high school?
I would like to go on a several mission trips, be a YoungLife Leader in Statesboro, hopefully travel abroad and study in Spain, and eventually start working as a pediatric physical therapist.
