Goals after graduation: My plans after graduation are still up in the air. I plan either to write for a newspaper or to teach English and coach baseball. I am also considering a career in the military as an officer in either the Army or Marine Corps.

Hidden talent: My hidden talent is, without a doubt, my ability to mix chocolate milk. It takes just the right ratio of powder to milk (which I will not disclose) to create a delicious glass of chocolate milk.

Favorite Part of Attending BPC: There are two things that come to mind when I think about my time at BPC. First, the life-long relationships I have developed with my teammates through the years; I will remember the good times I’ve had with all of them for the rest of my life. The second thing is the relationships I have developed with my great English teachers (Dr. Thom Brucie and Dr. Ruth Ellen Porter). These two teachers taught me the importance of learning while carefully guiding me through my studies. I can honestly say that without their help I wouldn’t be the person I am today.
