Luke is ready to jump right in to the academic challenges of the Dalton School next fall. An avid runner, he plans to participate on the cross country team. He’s also looking forward to extracurricular activities such as the Model United Nations.
Luke believes that he would not be where he is today without the encouragement and patience of his teachers. The small class sizes at MSS have enabled him to receive a lot of personal attention and grow as a learner. He’s especially learned presentation skills and feels comfortable speaking in front of groups of people.
Mustard Seed’s program has also taught Luke to serve others in ways both big and small. He enjoys making a difference through formal service projects like a collection for those in need or through small acts of kindness, like holding open the door for another student.
A four-time school champion and state finalist of the National Geographic Geography Bee, Luke has interests in geography, foreign regions, and current events. If he could travel anywhere, it would be to a European country like Switzerland. Committed to timeliness and rigorous planning, Luke believes he would fit right in with the culture.
