BM: “Determination and Dedication.” MCM: Do you have any favorite Junior or High School memories? BM: “When me, my dad, and my team went to the She Believes Cup at the Nissan Stadium to watch the USA Vs. France game and the England Vs. Germany game. After practice on the last day the track at MCHS was going to be available to us to practice on, because of the construction, a group of us went down to the track to cut out a piece. It was cold and our hands hurt, but we all got a piece of the track to keep.” MCM: What will you miss the most after you graduate from MCHS? BM: “My teammates, coaches, and playing sports.” MCM: Which class have you enjoyed the most as MCHS? BM: “Mark Crosslin’s AP Lang class.

Mr. Crosslin’s a great person who would join in on our jokes when it was appropriate.” MCM: Whom do you admire and why? BM: “My mom because through everything that has been thrown at her she has figured out how to deal with it and keeps moving forward.” MCM: If you could have one wish, what would it be? BM: “To have my dad be able to attend more of my sporting events.” MCM: Do you have any other hobbies/interests outside of school? BM: “Soccer is my main interest; it was the first sport I started, and I stuck with it through senior year and hopefully I'll be able to play in the military. I developed a love for the sport, and I made that my life. I truly couldn't be happier with the outcome.” MCM: What three words best describe you?

My years in high school have not been the easiest, but I have had friends, family, parents, teachers, and coaches help me through it. And for that I thank you all!”
