I am thirteen and will be entering the eighth grade at Holy
Spirit School in Overland Park, Kansas, just south of Kansas City, Kansas.
My favorite subjects in school are math, science, and American History. I
am involved in and enjoy many sports such as golf, basketball, baseball,
and football. I also have an interest in computers. I have two brothers,
one named Ben, and one named Sam. I got involved with the ThinkQuest
program when our head coach, Serena Roberts came upon Austin and me working
on a project for our school. She explained what ThinkQuest was and asked us
if we were interested. Austin and I agreed and that is where we are now.
I am fifteen and will be starting my sophomore year at Sacred Heart High School in Salina, Kansas. In school, I take advanced
math and science classes. I also enjoy many sports. Last year I lettered in Cross Country, played Junior Varsity football, played
Freshman Basketball, and ran Varsity Track. I also participate in Quizbowl, Band, FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America),
Junior Civitan, and CYO. During spring, fall, and winter, I referee youth sports at the YMCA. This summer I have worked at my
school as an assistant maintenance worker.
