Alliance Academy graduate advocates for youth Alana Murray Alliance Academy for Innovation Tell me a little bit about you. “I am an extroverted young entrepreneur who runs a business called Pearleshandmade. I have always been passionate about the law, which led me to enroll as a legal services student at alliance. In my free time, I can be found crocheting, reading and volunteering at the Sharon Forks Library or the Forsyth County Juvenile Court. I can also be found working with the city of Cumming Mayor Troy Brumbalow for his Youth Council.” What was your favorite subject(s) in high school? “History and government. The way our country works and how it got to this point has always intrigued me.” Were you a part of any clubs? Mock trial. I won three awards for my attorney work in the competitions. I did it for my entire high school career. SkillsUSA: a career-based student organization, did community service. Journalism: I worked as the Alliance Academy Yearbook editor for three years. Who was your greatest influence and why? Was there more than one? “I have been influenced by several recent

women figures. My greatest influences are Condeleeza Rice, the former secretary of state as well as former supreme court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. They have made it clear that no matter your background or upbringing, you can do astonishing things for the good of all.” What will you miss most about your school? “I will miss the amazing teachers, administration and friends at Alliance. They were always encouraging and challenged me to do more than I thought I could. It will be hard to move away from such a supportive community, but everyone has taught me how to flourish no matter where I am. For that, I am eternally grateful.” What are your plans after high school? “I have been honored to receive a full ride scholarship to Mercer University, where I will be studying criminal Justice and International Affairs. My scholarship includes a $16,000 stipend for studying abroad or research. I hope to spend this studying the effects of the Juvenile Justice system. I also plan to prepare for a career in law. If I get a chance, I would love to study abroad in the Middle East or Russia.” Where do you see yourself in 10 years? “I hope to be working as an advocate for youth, as either an attorney or working for a nonprofit. I believe in the power of giving the unfortunate a voice.”

Central senior hopes to be a physician one day

Grace Wilson Forsyth Central High School

and why? Was there more than one? “My parents are two of my biggest influences. They have always taught me to push myself in everything I do and to be willing to step outside of my comfort zone in order to grow. This is what led me to getting involved in so many activities and what inspires me to push myself to be the best I can be in my academics, athletics, and art. “My sister, Sarah, is also a huge influence to me. She is a gymnast on the Yale gymnastics team and I have always admired how she is able to balance her demanding school and gymnastics schedule.”

Tell me a little bit about you! “I am 17 years old and I have lived in Alpharetta my entire life. I attend Forsyth Central High School as an outof-district student in order to be a part of the STEM Academy in the biotechnology pathway. “Tennis is one of the biggest parts of my life. I have been playing tennis for six years. I practice year-round out of James Creek Tennis Center and I play in tournaments year-round. I also have a part-time job at James Creek where I help coach younger children. I have been a co-captain of the girls varsity tennis team at Central since my sophomore year and I have played 1st singles for the team since my freshman year.” “I am also a trumpet player and have been playing for the past 7 years. I am a part of Central’s Wind Ensemble band. In my free time I like to draw, paint, and crochet.” What was your favorite subject(s) in high school? “My favorite subjects in school were math and science because I love all things STEM. My favorite classes, specifically, were my biotechnology classes because I really enjoyed learning about different biotechnology techniques and biological processes in a hands-on environment. We have done labs involving agarose gel electrophoresis, polymerase chain reaction, RNA interference, and much more. In the future, I hope to participate in undergraduate research and I feel that these classes have given me indispensable exposure to the world of research.” Were you a part of any clubs? “This year I founded the Multicultural Student Union (MSU) with my friends. MSU is a discussion based club that provides a safe space for students to talk and learn about different social and cultural issues. My friends and I wanted to share the conversations we had among ourselves about our different cultures with

What will you miss most about your school? “The thing I will miss most about Central is definitely the people. I will miss the close friends that I made through the STEM program and the bonds we developed through late nights of studying together over the phone and hours together in the lab. I will also miss all of my teachers because they always genuinely cared about me and wanted the best for me. From the students, to the teachers, to the administrators, the C-House is truly a family that supports each other.”

other students. “My friends and I also founded the Crochet Club this year. Crochet club is a service based group that crochets to benefit different organizations in our community. For example, this year we made over 50 hats for homeless people in Atlanta, over 20 blankets for shelter animals, and we are currently working on making stuffed animals for less fortunate kids in Forsyth County. I love the Crochet Club because it combines two of my favorite things, community service and crocheting! “I have been an officer in Beta Club

for the past two years. As an officer of this service club I have helped create and organize several community service events such as writing letters of appreciation to teachers and healthcare professionals, raising awareness for shaken baby syndrome, and raising money for the American Heart Association. “I am also an active member of several other clubs at my high school including HOSA Club, Math Honor Society, Math Team, Spanish Honor Society, and National Honor Society.” Who was your greatest influence

What are your plans after high school? “I will be attending the California Institute of Technology in the fall. I plan to major in bioengineering and will be playing on the women’s tennis team.” Where do you see yourself in 10 years? “I want to be a physician one day, so in 10 years, I hope to have graduated medical school and begun residency, or I hope to be working in a medical research laboratory.”

Denmark student hopes to enter world of communications Anna Hicks Denmark High School Tell me a little bit about you! “I am a member of the cross country team, an active member of Alpharetta Presbyterian Church, Senior Class President, Editor in Chief of the yearbook, an older sister, and an avid reader. I love to be outdoors with my friends and family whether that means going on a hike, playing frisbee, or going on a walk. I enjoy running in my free time; I have completed one half marathon and I hope to participate in many more. “Personally, I can say I am detail oriented, thoughtful, curious, and most of all committed to those around me. I am dedicated to my family and my community and I love helping those around me succeed. Learning about how people interact and how different languages affect cultures fascinates me, and I hope to become bilingual and travel someday (post Covid) to many regions of the world.” What was your favorite subject(s) in high school? “I enjoyed most subjects in school but some of my favorite classes have been Spanish, English, and Math.” Were you a part of any clubs? “I was a part of yearbook all four years of high school; I held positions as a design editor, photography editor, and most recently as the Editor in Chief. I was also a part of many service clubs such as Beta Club, National Honor Society, and National Spanish Honor Society.” Who was your greatest influence and why? “My greatest influences this year have been my yearbook advisor Jennifer Marx and my Spanish teacher Cristina Wardrip Both of these women have gone above and beyond

this year as teachers and mentors, and done whatever they could, despite the challenges of COVID-19, to help me succeed. They are generous, intelligent, and kind and I hope to become as wonderful as they are someday. Both of them have helped guide me to find what I am passionate about so that I can pursue it at a higher level in college. Their confidence in me inspires me to continue to grow and be the best version of myself every day.” Was there more than one? “My greatest influences this year have been my yearbook advisor Jennifer Marx and my Spanish teacher Cristina Wardrip Both of these women have gone above and beyond this year as teachers and mentors, and done whatever they could, despite the challenges of COVID-19, to help me succeed.

Both of them have helped guide me to find what I am passionate about so that I can pursue it at a higher level in college. Their confidence in me inspires me to continue to grow and be the best version of myself every day.” What will you miss most about your school? “After graduating, I will miss the feeling of community that we have created at Denmark the most. Despite being a new school, our community has come together to support each other and build a strong sense of school spirit and pride. I hope that this spirit will carry on and only get stronger in the years after I have graduated.” What are your plans after high school? “I will be attending Furman University on an academic scholarship. I have not declared a major yet, but I am interested in Communications, Spanish, and Economics.”

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? “I am interested in majoring in Communications in college with a possible double major in either Spanish or Economics. I hope to attend graduate school, as I love to learn and hope to become a master in my field. “Although I am not completely sure of what I would like to do afterward, some ideas I have are to work for a publishing company as an editor, work as a consultant in communications and languages, or become a lawyer. I enjoy writing, solving problems, and design and I hope to be able to use those skills in my future career.”

Lambert grad headed to Duke, keeping options open Kasey Park Lambert High School

Tell me a little bit about you! “It seems like just the other day when I had graduated elementary school, and my parents had told me that I would be moving to a new place called Forsyth County. “The thought of leaving all of my friends behind and moving to a new school terrified me — where would I even start? I was told that I would attend Riverwatch Middle School, which, to me, connotated an unfamiliar jungle that I had to traverse through by myself. Yet, these fears became unfounded as I was welcomed into this county with open arms. “From the school counselor who took his time to give me a tour of the school to the people who ate lunch with me on the first day, I eventually found myself a place amongst my peers who later became my friends. “Three years of middle school went by just like that, and I told myself that high school would be an exception. After all, middle school was only a build-up and was preparation for the four years that were ahead of me. “The anticipation of stress and hard work were very much validated through the early mornings when I went to attend a volley of club meetings and with the late-night homework sessions that I sometimes had a breakdown over. However, in conjunction with the demands and worries, I also found myself being capable of rising above standards that I did not know that I could accomplish. This was also made possible with the support that I had, from teachers to friends to my parents. High school was a grueling journey, but I also was able to meet amazing people along the way.” More about me: I’m left-handed My favorite show is The Vampire Diaries I’m a bassoonist in the Emory Youth Symphony Orchestra and the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra Enjoy listening to country music Favorite artists: NF, Tate Mcrae, Alec Benjamin, Celine Dion Goal in life: Become a polyglot What was your favorite subject(s) in high school? “My favorite classes in high school involved history and social studies. I remember having my interest in the class AP Human Geography slowly build up over months when I took it during my freshman year. The applicability of the class from individual human interactions to current geopolitical scenes on a global scale fascinated me. It also helped that I had a wonderful teacher, Mrs. Watkins, whose enthusiasm for the class set the atmosphere of the classroom everyday. Were you a part of any clubs? Yes, I was a part of: Student Council Key Club National Honor Society National Beta Club

Cross Country Who was your greatest influence and why? Was there more than one? “With this question, two people come to mind. The first is my middle school band director, Mr. Koperniak. When I first became a part of the Riverwatch Middle School band program, I had been playing the clarinet at the time, and I had never once questioned switching to another instrument. However, Mr. Koperniak introduced me to an instrument called the bassoon early in the year— an instrument that I quickly came to love. “This introduction on his part became pivotal, and for the past seven years, I have continued to play this instrument from the concert hall of The Classic Center in Athens to the concert hall of the Woodruff Arts Center in Atlanta. In addition, his witty persona and hard demands of success in the bandroom continuously inspired me to become a better musician. In many ways, he set the foundation for my love in instrumental music.” “The second inspiration is my former 10th-grade counselor, Mrs. Endo. Before I came to know her, Lambert High School felt more of an institution solely for learning where I could go through the motions of attending classes and school activities. “There came a shift when I became closer with her in the 10th grade. Her office was always open for conversations and concerns, and she helped me become more proud of being a student at my school. Mrs. Endo was also the one to convince me to attend GASC, a student council convention for schools all across Georgia. There, I was pushed beyond my comfort to be a leader to others and make new friends. She helped me look more forward to coming to school (although it’s hard to imagine!) every day, and some of my time spent with her are some of my favorite memo-

ries from my time at Lambert.” What will you miss most about your school? “After leaving high school, I will miss the people at Lambert the most — whether it be friends or teachers. It’s a sad reality to think that I may never again see the people that I sat in class with or passed by in the hallways. I have also had the honor of meeting so many wonderful teachers throughout my years who have introduced me to vast worlds of knowledge that I will never fully be able to explore.” What are your plans after high school? “Right after high school, I plan on taking the time I have during the summer to strengthen my abilities to speak Korean, read books that I have been meaning to read for many months, and get a summer job to alleviate the cost of any future financial needs. “After summer, I am headed towards college, which will be at Duke University in North Carolina. The current plan is to study economics and possibly another major, such as computer science or public policy.” Where do you see yourself in 10 years? “To be honest, I’m not sure where I see myself in 10 years. Until recently, I had no idea what I wanted to study after high school, which is economics. Perhaps even this will change, as my interests move onto somewhere else in college. “All I know is that I wish for my future-self to be doing work that is societally and positively impactful, helping to build communities from the actions that I take. A more specific goal would be nice for anticipation, but my one hope is that this original wish does not change as I take on the years ahead of me.”

Lead where it counts.

North senior gets inspiration from her mother Daenecia Hines North Forsyth High School

Tell me a little bit about you! “I was born in Brooklyn, New York, and moved to Georgia at the age of 9. That move from a city to a sub-suburban area really opened my eyes and encouraged me to embrace diversity; it also exposed me to new experiences. I have had the opportunity to fish, attend mission trips, and even attend a medical camp at Emory University. Furthermore, I developed new hobbies like sewing, calligraphy and cake decorating. I was even inspired to create my own cake business, Dae’s Desserts. Now, I am excited to start the next chapter of my life at the University of West Georgia. I am looking forward to enjoying many more unique experiences.” What was your favorite subject(s) in high school? “Math was my favorite subject in high school because it was always a fun challenge.” Were you a part of any clubs? “Throughout high school, I have been the president of Future Health Professionals (HOSA) and Chess

Club. I also participated in Marching Band, Student Council, Live to Give Club, Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), Track and Field, Math Club, Raider Commanders, Prom Committee, and the New Student Organization (NSO).” Who was your greatest influence and why? Was there more than one? “Always reminding me to work hard and give my best effort, my greatest influence is my mother. I admire the way she leads by example, and I will always remember her inspirational quotes. Her phrases like “do the best you can” and “the sky is not the limit, it is only the beginning” will continue to inspire me as I continue my academic and personal career. My mother will always be a great influence in my life.” What will you miss most about your school? “The thing I will miss most about North Forsyth High School is my teachers. Over the past four years, my teachers have been very friendly, supportive and encouraging, even after I completed their class. I hope to stay in touch with them as I continue my academic career. What are your plans after high school? “After high school, I am excited to study biology at

the University of West Georgia. Where do you see yourself in 10 years? “Ten years from now, I see myself completing my second year of residency to become a successful surgeon. I will have graduated college and medical school and will be one step closer to achieving my dream career.”

South graduate aspires to help others as a surgeon Chris Efobi South Forsyth High School Tell me a little bit about you! “I would describe myself as a very outgoing and boisterous person. You can probably hear me from a mile away when I am playing games with friends, watching soccer with my family or having a very heated discussion, and I attribute my loudness to my Nigerian heritage. As extraverted as I can be, you can still find me cooped up in my room getting lost in a book or diving into the rabbit hole that is YouTube. I would say that I am a very devoted person who enjoys putting their all into whatever they do. Whether it is studying in school or playing soccer, I love to give 100% and be entirely focused on what I am doing. Last but not least, I am also a Christian, and my faith in Christ has opened lots of opportunities for me to not only have an impact on my community but also to engage in community and fellowship while keeping me afloat whenever I face hardships in life.” What was your favorite subject(s) in high school? “I would say my favorite subjects in high school were math, science and Spanish, although I wouldn’t say I have had a subject I hated.” Were you a part of any clubs? “I took part in a couple of clubs. I was a part of the Black Student Union at South and was actually the president for this year. I also was a part of the Tri-M Music Honor Society — in which I have served the role of Treasurer — the National Honors Society, and the Spanish National Honors Society. Even though this one isn’t a club, I have also been a part of the soccer program at South Forsyth High School.” Who was your greatest influence and why? Was there more than one? “I would have to say that my greatest influences are my parents because of the values they instilled in me. They pushed me to pursue greatness in whatever I did,

and while I achieved greatness, they kept me humble and grounded. I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for the sacrifices they made and the motivation they gave to me. However, I have had multiple influences in my life — from my small group leaders at my church; to every teacher I have had the privilege of having; to my soccer team at South; to some of my closest friends. They have all made an indelible mark on my life, all in their own unique way, and they have all helped mold me into the person I am today.” What will you miss most about your school? “The thing that I will miss most about my school is the community. Throughout these four years, I have been able to meet so many friends, students, teachers and administration members alike. I have been constantly surrounded by such brilliant and caring people who have all added to my high school experience. Having to go online because of COVID-19 really made me cherish the community at South Forsyth High School that much more, and I will dearly miss being able to interact with it on a daily basis.” What are your plans after high school? “After getting accepted into a couple of fantastic schools, from the University of Georgia, to Northeastern University, to the University of Chicago, I have decided that I will attend the University of Alabama. I will be part of the honors college at the university and will be doing Biochemistry on the PreMed track.” Where do you see yourself in 10 years? “I see myself in 10 years being in the middle of my surgical residency.

West graduate has strong roots in faith and family Caroline Andrews West Forsyth High School Tell me a little bit about you! “Well, I’m 18 years old, and I love to talk about the two least controversial things in the world: politics and religion.” What was your favorite subject(s) in high school? “My favorite subject was history, particularly US History. Getting to learn about the past of this great nation was my favorite part of the day.” Were you a part of any clubs? “I was a part of Marching Band, Academic Bowl, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Sources of Strength, Rho Kappa, National Honors Society, and outside of school I was a member of my youth group’s Servant Ministry Team and got to teach a class of fifth grade girls in our kid’s church. In other words, I didn’t sleep much in high school.” Who was your greatest influence and why? Was there more than one? “There are so many people who have poured into me over the past 13 years of my life. Definitely the staff at my church who have helped me grow, as well as the volunteers I get to work with at our kids church.” What will you miss most about your school? “Definitely the people. The teachers, administrators, and students that I’ve met along the way have been one of the best parts of high school.” What are your plans after high school? “After high school I will be attending Liberty University where I will definitely be majoring in Theology and Apologetics, with a double major in either History or Politics and Policy. I hope to get involved with their Standing for Freedom Center as well, which is a group that seeks to promote Christian, conservative ideals for Americans.”

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? “I’m still not sure exactly what the 10-year plan looks like. I know that I want to have a big family, homeschool my kids, and stay close with my parents and siblings too. I would love to be working for a conservative news organization or policy center where I

talk about cultural issues and how they relate to the Bible. The intersection between biblical Christianity and how that should influence our political views has always been a passion of mine, and it’s something that I love to teach and talk to others about.”

Midweek Edition-May 26-27, 2021

Pinecrest grads headed to West Point, Army Henry Borgerding Pinecrest Academy Tell me a little bit about you! “I am the oldest of five children. I have enjoyed being involved in many extracurricular activities during high school. I have played on the varsity lacrosse and swim teams all four years of high school, I ran for the cross country team in my senior year, and have been in the Boy Scouts throughout middle and high school. I enjoy spending my free time with my friends and family and sharing experiences with them.” What was your favorite subject(s) in high school? “My favorite subject was history. Specifically AP European History in my sophomore year. It was a very interesting class, and I had a great teacher.” Were you a part of any clubs? “I started the Film Studies Club in my junior year and was president of the club.” Who was your greatest influence and why? Was there more than one? “My dad has definitely been the most influential person in my life. He really pushed me in my high school journey when I needed it, and he was a huge help in my process of being accepted to West Point. Also, all my friends and family definitely helped push me to strive for success, and I want to thank them for being so supportive.” What will you miss most about your school? “I will miss the great friendships that I have made. In such a small class, I was able to develop close friendships with many of my classmates.” What are your plans after high school? “I will be attending the United States Military Academy at West Point. After graduating, I will be joining the Army as a 2nd Lieutenant, where I will serve for at least five years.” Where do you see yourself in 10 years? “If all goes as planned, I will either still be serving in the Army as an officer or be starting my career as a mechanical engineer, hopefully in the automotive industry.”

Mark Metz Pinecrest Academy Tell me a little bit about you! “I have been a student at Pinecrest for 13 years. I have been involved in student government, academic clubs, service clubs, and multiple sports. Wrestling is one of my passions and I will be joining the Black Knight Army Wrestling team. I am the 9th out of 11 children. I am excited to join my family’s tradition of military service. My father served in the Navy, and my sister is currently in the Navy Nurse Corps. I have a brother that is an Army chaplain and one that I will be joining at West Point.” What was your favorite subject(s) in high school? “History was my favorite subject. I had the best teacher, Mr. Martin Podmolik.” Were you a part of any clubs? “Yes, I was involved in several clubs over my four years. My favorite club was Conquest. It is a faith-based service club. I was a member in middle school and became a team leader for my four years of high school.” Who was your greatest influence and why? Was there more than one? “My family, as a whole, has been the biggest influence in my life. Being near the end of 11 children, I saw how several different paths played out. Individually, I would say my dad and my older brother played huge roles, both as role models and through their support. My brother helped me learn how to focus and achieve my goals.” What will you miss most about your school? “All of the good people throughout the school, from friends to teachers and administrators. The atmosphere at Pinecrest Academy makes it easy to grow and learn, while pushing me to become strong in my faith, academics, and as a person.” What are your plans after high school? “I will be attending the United States Military Academy, where I plan to study political science and continue my wrestling career for the Black Knights.” Where do you see yourself in 10 years? “I see myself as an active-duty Army officer.”
