Favorite aspect of your school: The entire student body really seems to care about the community and how we present ourselves. Not only that, but it’s also a very fun school to go to.

If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been most rewarding and why? The most rewarding for me has been participating in and helping prepare for the Phase 1 game at Neenah. During this game, a unified team of SALT members and special needs students get to take on the teachers in a basketball game. It has been the most rewarding because I have been able to participate in it the past two years and each time it has been a great experience to interact with the other students on my team and also see the support from the rest of our peers.
