Student of the Week: Max Murphy '24
Max Murphy '24, Trinity House, with Mrs. Abby (Wiles) Merkle
Max is a kind and positive young man who exemplifies a level of responsibility beyond his years. While there was a substitute teacher in the room, Max created a review game for the class to play to study for the upcoming test. I was very impressed to see this first hand when I came back into the room and everyone was either working on their assignments or reviewing with Max's game. A big “Thank You” goes to Max for leading the class in active studying!
