Favorite high school memory:

"My favorite memory was our 2020 conference meet where our team really came together and broke a ton of records."

Coach/Teacher who made the biggest impact:

"Coach Warner helped me adjust to North quickly after moving back to the states. He never treated me like a 'new' kid and constantly challenged me. Coach Warner helped me reach my personal goals as well as our team goals."

Thing you will miss the most about high school:

"I will miss having all my friends around me and being able to represent North. However, I am excited for the new things to come."

Best part about high school and this community:

"The best part of my community is that we support each other. Liberty is a place where high school events and accomplishments matter to both the school and the community."
