Favorite aspect of your school: My favorite aspect of Oshkosh West would have to be the amount of positive attitude and socialization that occurs here.

If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been most rewarding and why? The community service project that has been the most rewarding would have to be CARE days. I would say this has been the most rewarding because it helps bring students in the community together to help celebrate what kids are able to do rather than thinking about what they aren't able to do.

What is your favorite class? Spanish

Who is your favorite teacher? Kelly Wayne

What is the best advice one of your coaches has given you? "You don't have to run, you get to run" - Coach Polak

Favorite place to play on the road in the FVA? All around I would say that Neenah has a great pool to swim in, a great track to run on, and not only that but Neenah puts on a great cross country meet!

Favorite athlete to compete against in the FVA: I don't think I have a favorite athlete to compete against because truthfully, everyone I compete against always puts up a good fight in whatever sport it is that I'm competing against them in

Favorite memory from being involved in co-curricular activities is…: My favorite memory would have to come from different practices in cross country. In cross country Coach Polak always puts on a fun scavenger hunt in the beginning of the season. The goal of the scavenger hunt is to run around the city to find different things and take a picture with a disposable camera. It's always fun to see the pictures everyone ends up taking!  

Favorite professional team: Green Bay Packers

Favorite professional athlete: Aaron Rodgers

College or post-high school plans: I'm hoping to go to either UW-Platteville or UW-Oshkosh
