Favorite aspect of your school: Appleton North has been very accommodating when it comes to scheduling, this year I spend part of my day taking classes at Neenah High School without any conflicts.
If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been most rewarding and why? Like many other athletes in the area, I have really enjoyed the opportunity to help out at Inspire Sports events. It has been rewarding to help kids who do not often have the chance to participate in sports find the same enjoyment that I do.
