Hope Danis, Baltimore House, with Mrs. Liz Emser

Hope is sweet, kind, and cares so deeply about everyone around her. She reaches out a helping hand before she is ever asked to do so. She is curious and inquisitive in her studies and works extremely hard to achieve success. Hope is a model Carroll Patriot, and I have no doubt that she will continue to lead with integrity and sincerity throughout her years at Carroll.

-Mrs. Liz Emser

What activities do you participate in?

I am a member of the Cross Country and Track & Field teams, Drama Club, and Mass Choir

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

My favorite part of Carroll is the teachers. They have made me feel completely welcome and at home in Carroll High School in addition to teaching me some of the most vital information of my life: how to deal with other students. 

What should school “do” for you?

I think that school should provide for you a foundation to join the world, and an atmosphere that encourages you to choose good and right rather than easy. 

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

I have learned throughout this year that everything does not have to work and fit perfectly.  You simply need to be striving for the best outcome because that is all you can control.

What’s your biggest dream in life?

I don’t really know what I want to do with my life yet. In second grade, we had to make a book, and I said I wanted to be a mother of 11 kids. My teacher in all her wisdom said try one first. I’m still not really sure what I want to do, but I hope to learn what God wants for me in my time here at Carroll.

How do you like spending your free time?

I know that this is cheesy and overused but my favorite way to spend my time is with my family. I really can’t imagine a better day than doing anything with my family.

Kelly Dong, Gonzaga House

What activities do you participate in?

I am an Editor in Yearbook Club, President of National Honor Society, and an Officer for Spanish club. Additionally, I am involved in Ohio Math League, Spanish Honor Society, and I’m a research intern at Wright Patterson Air Force Base under mentor Dr. John Harrell.

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

The teachers are my favorite part about being at Carroll. Shoutout to Mrs. Edwards, Mrs. Ollier, Dr. O’Malley, Ms. Caserta, Mrs. Fuhr, Mr. Ochs, Mayor Williams, and so many others. 

What should school “do” for you?

School should give you a little of an idea of what you want to do in life. Whether that be traveling, entering into a trade school, taking a break, or entering into college, school should support and inspire you to take your next few steps.

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

Although I was born in the US, I lived in China for the first four years of my life with my grandparents. When I came to the US, I barely knew any English going into preschool. Because of the language barrier, I was scared of talking. Therefore, through this, I have learned to ask the questions you have and to talk to the people you’ve always wanted to talk to; after all, there’s no guarantee that you’ll ever see anyone from your high school ever again.

What’s your biggest dream in life?

My biggest dream in life has always been to become an oncologist (a cancer doctor) and to get a dog. Part of my dream is coming true because my family is getting a toy poodle in a few weeks!

How do you like spending your free time?

In my free time, I like to read, cook, and bake. Currently, I’ve baked a dozen different chocolate chip cookie recipes in search of the perfect cookie.

Pamela Olivas, Charity House

What activities do you participate in?

I am part of the marching band, Chamber Strings, Drama club, and I am a yearbook editor.

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

I love getting involved with various activities at Carroll and spending time with friends.

What should school “do” for you?

I believe school should teach us to be responsible and good people before we go out into the world.

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

I learned that sometimes it is okay when things don’t go the way you planned, it is better to learn from it and adapt.

What’s your biggest dream in life?

I would love working to make my community better and helping as many people as I can. 

How do you like spending your free time?

I spend my free time playing my viola and hanging out with friends.

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

My favorite part of being a student at Carroll is how involved the community is and the many activities the school has to offer. There are so many clubs and sports available for anyone to join.

What should school “do” for you?

School should be a safe place to further your education and also your relationships with others. It should be an area where everyone is comfortable to share their thoughts and learn important life lessons.

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

I learned the importance of resting when you need to, so you don’t break. If things aren’t working out the way that you wanted, it is best to take a step back and reevaluate the problem

My biggest dream in life is to become better at viola and art, so I can eventually share what I enjoy with others.  Most importantly, I want to have a family with a lot of cats.

I enjoy spending time with my cats, reading, listening to music, drawing, playing video games, and making smoothies.

What should school “do” for you?

School should prepare you not only for the next chapter of your life, but for the whole rest of the novel.

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

I learned the importance of not letting others define who you are, and above all, I learned that you need to do what makes you happy.

My favorite part of being a student at Carroll is the family environment that is present within the building each and every day. Carroll’s faculty and staff truly care about helping students become successful both in and out of the classroom.

School should provide a solid foundation for you to be successful outside of the classroom in the real world.

I have learned that everything happens for a reason and that you can always count on your friends and family to support you when you need it most.
