Favorite aspect of your school: My school offers a lot of extracurricular activities for students and allows me to participate and compete at a high level in football, hockey, and baseball.
If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been most rewarding and why? I volunteer as a Big Buddy for the Fond du Lac Dream Catcher's baseball games. Helping a Little Buddy who has a physical or mental disability play the game of baseball is something special. I like seeing the smiles on my buddy's face after hitting the ball and running around the bases. It has taught me to be thankful for the good health I have, and it makes me feel good helping someone else get to do an activity they normally wouldn't be able to do on their own.
