Addison Linard '25: Student of the Week February 22, 2024

February 21, 2024
By Archbishop Carroll High School

Student of the Week Addison Linard '25, Baltimore House and St. Helen School Alumna, with Mrs. Acacia Morrell

Addison swam last year, but while participating in Color Guard, she was worried about taking on too much.  She helps me as a team manager, and has been a godsend as I do not have an assistant coach.  Addison recently told me she is now the Assistant Stage Manager for the musical this spring, too. Addison has done all this with grace even while she has faced some adversity in her life.

-Mrs. Acacia Morrell

Favorite Restaurant:

Olive Garden

Favorite Movie:

Lilo and Stitch

Who would play you in a movie?

Debbie Harry from Blondie

Place you'd love to travel:

Paris

What activities do you participate in?

I am a part of the Color Guard, the Prop Manager and Assistant Stage Manager for the musical, and I the student helper for Mrs. Morrell on the Swim Team.

What's your favorite part of being a student at Carroll?

The welcoming community and all the friends that I’ve made through my years here. I also love the inclusivity and leadership roles available to the students.

What should school “do” for you?

I think that school should teach us how to form life-long skills and friendships. We learn all the basic courses like math and science, but we also learn how to cook and manage our finances. I’ve learned how to form friendships that will last, and the friends that I’ve made have made the biggest impact on my life.

What’s a lesson you learned when you overcame a difficult obstacle?

Don’t keep doing something that you don’t absolutely love. I was on a swim team from a young age until last year, and leaving it was so amazing for my mental health. I am so excited to continue as part of the swim team as a leader while also being able to have a leadership role in the musical and be in the color guard.

What’s your biggest dream in life?

I want to have a future where I’m a famous fashion designer whose designs are shown and admired all around the world.

How do you like spending your free time?

I spend my free time making origami swans and paper flowers. I also love making sketches of all of my fashion designs.

Favorite Restaurant:

Condado Tacos

Favorite Movie:

Forrest Gump 

Who would you play in a movie?

Luke Skywalker

Place you'd love to travel:

Anywhere in Latin America

What activities do you participate in?

I am in Multicultural Club.  We often go to movies, sports games, or even host small parties, so groups that don't get much recognition at Carroll can feel in place.

What's your favorite part of being a student at Carroll?

The people.  I've met some fantastic people here at Carroll.  I have made amazing friends, met fantastic teachers, and they have all helped me grow as a person. Without them, I'd still be very immature.

What should school “do” for you?

School should continue to challenge me to be a better person; a person who should fight indifference and expand the cultural tastes of everyone.

What’s a lesson you learned when you overcame a difficult obstacle?

Mistakes are common. When I was younger, I made a lot of stupid decisions by only thinking about myself. Through overcoming these, I learned that I wasn't perfect, and I will continue making mistakes as I grow as a person that I will need to learn from.

What’s your biggest dream in life?

To help others who are wronged against throughout the world. We are all people; we live under the same star.

How do you like spending your free time?

I love to study other cultures and languages, although I do also love unwinding for the day and playing some video games with friends, because we all need a chance to just take a break.

What's your favorite part of being a student at Carroll?

My favorite part of being a student at Carroll is the community at Carroll. It is so welcoming, and I like how they are inclusive towards everyone.

What should school “do” for you?

School should provide a foundation for who you are and will become. It should prepare you for the journey of life ahead. It should have adults that you can trust and talk to if ever in need or just want to talk.

What’s a lesson you learned when you overcame a difficult obstacle?

I’ve learned not to let your past define you. It’s in the past for a reason.

How do you like spending your free time?

I don’t have much free time, but when I do, I like to be with my friends and get chocolate milk.
