The Marathon Weekly is proud to partner with Marathon High School faculty and students in choosing “The Student of the Week.” Recipients are chosen on qualifications including academic standing, athletics, outstanding achievements, community involvement, individuality and moral fortitude. We thank our future leaders and MHS for allowing us to share in a weekly dose of “Dolphin Pride,” and for giving us a glimpse into their world.

What is something most people don’t know about you? I lived in St. Augustine before we moved here.

Who is your all-time favorite teacher and why? Mr. Murphy is my favorite teacher because he is also my coach.

What does “a good education” mean to you? Working hard to do the best you can in school.

What is the dumbest rule at your school? The best? All of the rules here are good except for the rule that says we can’t wear “hoodies.”

What organizations and activities are you involved with at MHS and why are they important to you? I’m involved in cross country and track. They are important to me because I’ve been running my whole life and I don’t plan on stopping.

What are your plans after high school? To go to college and continue running.

What do you hope to be remembered for at MHS? For my academic and sports acheivements.


What is one favorite way to spend your spare time? Just relaxing.

Will you make the Keys your permanent home? Why or why not? Probably not because after college I want to live somewhere else. But I think Florida will always be my home.

What three things would you like to accomplish before your 10-year reunion? One, have a successful career. Two, break 15 minutes in the 5k. Three, become a professional runner.
