What do you like best about Ewing High School?


My favorite aspect about Ewing High School is the many opportunities that are available to all students.  You can be involved in sports, clubs, or art programs, whichever best suits your interests.

Who is your favorite teacher(s) why?


My favorite teachers at Ewing High are Ms. Kellar and Mrs. Hutchinson. Ms. Kellar makes it a priority to ensure all of her students understand the material, is available to assist students, and is an ultimate resource.  Mrs. Hutchinson always makes class interesting.  

In which activities do you participate?


I participate in the Peer Leadership program, am a member of National Honor Society and Student Council. I am a scholar-athlete on the Girls Varsity Soccer team as well as the Girls Varsity Lacrosse team. I am first stand in the Orchestra and a member of the Pit Band for the school musical, Legally Blonde.  

What is your favorite memory of high school?

One of my favorite memories during high school was the Peer Leadership Retreat this summer. The retreat is a great way of experiencing team building and communication skills with my fellow classmates in a non-classroom environment.

Who or what has impacted your life in a positive way?

My soccer coach Ms. Pedersen, served as a mentor and a guide to help me become a better player and person.  Ms. Pedersen taught me to look at every situation in a positive way.

I plan on attending a college to earn my Masters Degree, taking interest in an Occupational Therapy Program.
