Student of the Week: Grace Norman '23
Grace Norman '23, Mercy House, with Mrs. Linda Edwards
Grace is truly friendly. I do not have her in class, but she speaks to me every day. She has become my go-to for a shadow guide because she is just so nice.

What activities do you participate in?

What's your favorite part of being a student at Carroll?
Honestly, my favorite part of being a student at Carroll is the community we have. I love the teachers and how they are here for you regardless if you take their class or not. I feel that the teachers love their students and know that we are human too, and that we make mistakes and mess up. I feel like this is a really important thing some schools forget.
What should school “do” for you?
I feel like school should prepare us for life outside of academics. It should prepare us for college, but also give us skills for how to deal with life, if we decide not to go to college. I feel like you should be able to take at least one (hopefully more) thing you learned and be able to apply it outside of academics in a positive way. It should also prepare you well for college.
What’s a lesson you learned when you overcame a difficult obstacle?
That a support system of love can really be the thing you need to get through, and it is a lot easier to weather the storm when you have someone. Also, a small act of kindness can go a long way when someone is having a bad day.
What’s your biggest dream in life?
To find a job I love and surround myself with the people I love.
How do you like spending your free time?
I love to read, play games with my dogs and spending time with my friends.
