EHS Senior Spotlight Meet: Lawrence Boadi


L. B.

Who is your favorite teacher?

My favorite teacher is Mrs. Masterson.  Mrs. Masterson has only ever embraced me with love and open arms since the starting point of my high school career.  She has been with me every step of the way (senior year being the only year I did not have a class with her). She has encouraged me, motivated me in all aspects of my life: whether it be to not give up on an assignment or test, a hard class task or even just advice during my lesser moments in life. I see Mrs. Masterson as my second mom and I’m very thankful to have met her in my life. 


In which activities do you participate in school? 

I am a National Honor Society member, a Key Club Executive member, the newspaper and I tutor.


What activities do you participate outside of school?

I work at the Soup kitchen, am the Treasurer at my church, and also am the Youth/Sunday School Activities Manager.  I do additional tutoring outside of school.


What accomplishments are you most proud of?  

The gradual push academically from starting at college prep level classes my freshman year to now being in AP and Honors classes as my high school career progressed. I never thought, as a freshmen that I would in the future be in the National Honor Society, be nominated both my junior and senior year as an EHS Student of the Month or be chosen to be highlighted in Observer - GoodNews as the Senior Spotlight.  I am also proud of the Tutoring Certificate I received.

What is your favorite memory of high school? 

My freshman year Algebra 1 class with Ms. Salvitty was a class I especially enjoyed. My friends and I all happened to be in that class my freshman year, and during the school year it was filled with amazing moments; laughter, joy and happiness. 


Who has impacted your life in a positive way? 

Mrs. Masterson: for encouraging me to believe that the sky's the limit as well as any dream I have is tangible.


How do you define success?

 I define success in working as hard as you can till you reach a moment in time one could not imagine possible three to four years prior. 


What are your plans after you graduate?

 I am majoring in Pre-Medicine and will attend Medical School. 


What is your favorite quote or book?

 My favorite book is all the Game of Thrones books. (I would not recommend watching the last season of Game of Thrones.)


If you were walking down Parkway Avenue and found $100 in cash, what would you do with the money if you could do anything you wanted with the money? 


I would intend in focusing that money in any charity suitable in the aim of the betterment of global warming.
