Favorite Memory at Miege: The first day of freshman year. I was so nerve wracked that I practiced saying “hello” in my mirror before orientation. When I entered the commons, I randomly approached about twenty people and asked them if they wanted to be friends, and that’s how I met my close friends today. It definitely brought me out of my comfort zone. I loved feeling new and part of something larger than myself and I remember thinking, “Wow I can’t wait to be a senior.” I would do anything to be a freshman again.

Involvements:  Varsity volleyball for four years now, I’m in NHS, and I’m in concert chorale this year, but I’ve done choir for 3 years now. I also played soccer my freshman year

Favorite Memory at Miege:  The ’80s mixers, especially sophomore year. They’re always really fun and the music is great obviously. Plus the volleyball team usually gets ready together after practice and we like to see who has the best outfit.

Favorite Memory at Miege: Seeing Molly Lombardi hit a little black car in the Miege parking lot. We were all trying to guess whose car it was from the senior class. Eventually we found out it was Mrs. Carman´s. Love her.
