EHS Senior Spotlight: Meet Michael Abelowitz

Michael Abelowitz

 

What do you like best about Ewing High School? I like the family atmosphere and the entire staff who truly care about the students. 

Who is your favorite teacher or coach? Coach Given, who planted the seed for my work ethic, ‘to do my best’ and Coach Miller who continues to instill these values every day. 

In which activities do you participate? At Ewing High School--Football, Wrestling, Lacrosse, Peer Leadership, National Honor Society, Youths against Tobacco in the Community--Volunteer Firefighter, Altar Server, and Boy Scouts. 

What is your favorite memory of high school? It’s a tough decision because much of my high school career has been positive. However, if I had to pick one thing, it would be walking off the field at the end of my last home football game of Junior season. Playing with that offensive line is a memory I will never forget. 

Who or what has impacted your life in a positive way? My grandfather Boosh, while he was still with us, he taught me so much. If I am ever half of the man he was, then I’ll do just fine in life and I know I’ll have done him proud. 

How do you define success? By never giving up.

 What are your plans after you graduate? I plan to attend the University of New Haven in Connecticut to study Emergency Management and Homeland Security.

 What is your favorite quote or book? “Pain is nothing compared to what it feels like to quit. Give everything you got today for tomorrow may never come.” ~ Dan Gable-University of Iowa Wrestling Coach
