GPA: 4.0 unweighted.

Headed to: Georgia Institute of Technology with plans to major in electrical and computer engineering and minor in music.

Extracurriculars: Varsity golf, principal trumpet in band, tutoring math and Spanish.

Great influence: My grandfather, who taught of imparting knowledge rather than flaunting wisdom.

Teacher shout-out: Dr. Gary Compton — my band director — whose guidance and passion for classical trumpet have allowed me to grow as an instrumentalist.

Best school-related memory: My greatest memory of Academy at the Lakes is exploring San Francisco with my peers freshman year.
