Shaina Beam '24: Student of the Week May 16, 2024

May 16, 2024
By Archbishop Carroll High School

Shaina Beam '24, Charity House member and St. Helen School alumna, with Mrs. Liz Emser

Hardworking, determined, and always has a smile on her face – that's Shaina Beam!  When Shaina was an 8th grader at St. Helen, she took my Algebra course through our partnership with local Catholic grade schools. Now, as a senior at Carroll, I'm blessed to have her in class again in AP Calculus. Even as an 8th grader she was hardworking, curious, and determined to do her best every day, and she is even more motivated now as a senior. She encompasses all qualities of a Carroll Patriot, from a 13-year-old to an 18-year-old, her drive, passion, and kindness haven't changed. I can't wait to see all that she accomplishes!

-Mrs. Liz Emser

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

My favorite part about being a student was seeing the people at Carroll every day. Spending four years seeing the same group of people has brought me very close to them.

What should school “do” for you?

School should help prepare a person for their next step in life. I believe that Carroll did an amazing job of helping the seniors smoothly get through the initial college process and be ready for a whole new start.

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

A lesson that I learned when I overcame a difficult obstacle was that it's easier to turn to the people around you when things get rough.

What’s your biggest dream in life?

My biggest dream in life is to travel. Whether it's with my family or with my friends, I love going places and seeing new things.

How do you like spending your free time?

I like spending my free time going out. Whether it's bike rides, Kings Island trips, or hanging with friends, I find it difficult to stay inside all day.
