Jayd Brown ‘26, St. Mary’s House, with Mrs. Laura Wright

Jayd’s grades have improved dramatically through the semester.  She is also focused on her work, asks questions when she needs help, and checks with me when she misses class.  I am so impressed with her work ethic and positive attitude.  She is also very respectful and a pleasure to have in class!

-Mrs. Laura Wright

What activities do you participate in?

Outside of school I like to play basketball mostly, some soccer and do anything with my family, from a party, game, or vacation.

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

Having access to all the education and books I need to grow my knowledge and better it. That is my favorite part of being a Carroll student.

What should school “do” for you?

School should do no more than what it already does, as school already helps me to better my knowledge and helps me have a better set up for life and my future.

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

I learned to not stress and try to find a solution, and if you ask God for help, he'll give it to you.

What’s your biggest dream in life?

Being able to give my loved ones any and everything they want so they'll have little to no worries.

How do you like spending your free time?

I like to spend time with my younger brother and play with him, doing whatever he wants, mostly.

Gunnar Shiverdecker '25, Mercy House, with Mrs. Nicole Druck

Gunnar is an all around great kid.  His school spirit stands out as he went especially all in for Homecoming Spirit Week bringing a smile to everyone’s face.  He is very kind to everyone as well.

What activities do you participate in?

I'm a member of Chess Club and considering trying out for the Bowling Team.

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

My favorite part of being a student at Carroll is probably the sense of community, because despite me not being the most outgoing person, it took me almost no time to open up to others and make friends.

What should school “do” for you?

School should give me a place to not only prepare for the future that lies ahead of me and help me build friendships with people that will be there for me years after I've graduated.

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

I've come to learn from my obstacles that what comes after an obstacle is always worth pushing for, even if it's just a sense of accomplishment.

What’s your biggest dream in life?

My biggest dream in life is to give back to the BMX scene. With how much it has given me, I'd love to give back in any way possible, whether it be starting my own brand, opening a bike shop, or just helping the next generation of BMX riders by giving them extra parts or advice on a trick they can't seem to figure out.

How do you like spending your free time?

I spend the majority of my free time outside of school riding BMX, laying down some nasty riffage on my 5 string bass, trying to figure out what to make for breakfast as a vegan, or playing video games with friends.

Student of the Week Roberto Coronel Ramirez '26: November 2, 2022

Roberto Coronel Ramirez '26, Mercy House, with Dr. Cody Smith

Roberto has been very engaged and works hard inside and outside of the classroom. While he prefers to work alone, I have noticed that he is willing to get outside of his comfort zone and work with his classmates during group activities. He is always one of the first students to attempt to answer questions and will ask questions when he needs assistance. While these are all great qualities in a student, the thing that I think puts him over the edge is at the end of class, he will go around the classroom and put up any chair that doesn't get put up by other students before he leaves for the day.

-Dr. Cody Smith

What activities do you participate in?

I participate in Marching Band, Drama Club, Stage Crew, and Mass Choir.  I also plan to run for Student Council.

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

My favorite part of being a Carroll student is all of the people there are so kind and helpful. I feel very comfortable with the Carroll family, and Carroll feels like a second home to me.

What should school “do” for you?

I believe that the purpose of school is to prepare me for college and all of the obstacles that I have ahead of me. Carroll is a great school and so far I am confident that Carroll is achieving just that.

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

One thing that I have learned from being a Carroll student is how to deal with time management. I have to balance activities with schoolwork. Being a section leader in Marching Band, participating in Drama Club, finishing homework, and all of the other things that I do is tough to achieve. I have learned to work it out and still achieve my goals.

What’s your biggest dream in life?

My biggest dream in life is to get good grades, go to college to get a good job, and stay happy through it all.

How do you like spending your free time?

In my free time, I enjoy playing board games, watching movies, playing soccer, spending time outside, and playing music.
