Outside of school, I am heavily involved in Boy Scouts. I am an Eagle Scout from Troop 99, and a member of the Order of the Arrow, Scouting’s National Honor Society. I have had many leadership opportunities through Scouting, including two consecutive terms as Senior Patrol Leader, and I have served in numerous other positions within my Troop and the local Order of the Arrow Lodge. Through Scouts, I have also had the chance to provide service to others. My membership in the Order of the Arrow has been my biggest opportunity to serve others. One opportunity I had through the OA was to attend Summit Corps in 2011. This was a nation-wide service project for the OA, that involved traveling to West Virginia and carving trails through the National Park lands in the mountains.
Next year, I will be attending the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I will major in Biology with plans to attend medical school.
