Throughout my time at Lisle High School, I had many very influential teachers. I would have to say that the teacher that had the most impact on me was Mr. Bamboat. He taught me that most people are willing to help you out if you ask for it. But if you have no desire to get better or pay attention, then other people are going to notice that and not put in much effort to help you. Which also leads me to my post high school plans. I will be attending the University of Arkansas and majoring in computer engineering. With this, I hope to be able to graduate in 4 years and work at a large company.
My most significant memory at Lisle High School has to be when I got pulled up to varsity baseball my Freshman year and I was part of the Regional Championship team. Although beating Westmont in every sport my senior year was great, this has to top that. Being part of such a fun event at such a young age really inspired me to what I wanted to do when I was older. My goal from there on out, for every sport, was to win the regional championship. The feeling that I had after holding that plaque on the way home from the game was incredible. Looking at all the players that put blood, sweat and tears into that season really showed me what I could do in my upcoming high school years.
Once again, I would like to thank the Carlin Nalley Foundation for giving me this opportunity and scholarship which will help pave a path for me onto my next journey in my life.
