EHS Senior Spotlight: Meet Ryan Webster
What do you like best about Ewing High School? My favorite aspects of Ewing High School are the diverse academic, athletic and extra-curricular opportunities that are available. Also, the teachers and counselors are actively engaged with all the students and our futures.
Who is your favorite teacher or coach why? My favorite teacher is Mr. Weber because he challenged me academically in my Pre-Calculus Honors class and helped me prepare for Calculus 1. My favorite Coach is Coach Monty because his encouragement and continued guidance helped me improve my running strategies. He is a true coach on and off the field.
In which activities do you participate? I am a Varsity Cross Country and Spring Track runner as well as a Varsity swimmer. I am a member of National Honor Society, Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) and actively volunteer at Preferred Care Nursing Home in Ewing, NJ.
What is your favorite memory of high school? My favorite memory of high school is having fun at the Six Flags Invitational cross country meet with my friends and teammates during the fall. We all had a great time at the park afterwards.
Who or what has impacted your life in a positive way? I attended two summer camps at Marine Military Academy in Harlingen, TX during 2015 and 2017. It is a military prep-school run by ex-Marine Corps Drill Instructors. Those experiences improved my organizational skills and greatly increased my confidence.
How do you define success? Success is trying your best and getting back up after you fail with a plan to improve and knowing when to ask for help. Treating people with respect, being thoughtful in your actions and helping others when they are struggling are also important to being successful in life.
What are your plans after you graduate? I plan on studying Computer Science Engineering at either Ole Miss, Auburn or the University of South Carolina. I also aspire to become a Marine Corps or Naval Officer.
What is your favorite quote or book? “If you’re not a leader on the bench, don’t call yourself a leader on the field. You’re either a leader everywhere or nowhere.” - Abby Wambach, USA Olympic Soccer Player.
