Musical Instruments, Recordings, Concerts...
Violin: 2002 - Present

Violin isn't just an instrument to me, it means everything to me. The violin is a special talent that I have and few people can play it or will dedicate the time to learning it. When I am feeling down or just need to let off some steam, playing the violin will always make me feel better. I have been playing the violin since I was five and my private instructor has been Mrs. Hendricks since 2010. Below is my favorite quote.

"A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin; what else does a man need to be happy?"
Albert Einstein

Honor Societies
National Honor Society

The National Honor Society (NHS) and National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) are the nation's premier organizations established to recognize outstanding high school and middle level students. More than just an honor roll, NHS and NJHS serve to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character (and Citizenship for NJHS). These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since their beginnings in 1921 and 1929.
