What activities are you involved with at Berwick?

I play varsity hockey, varsity lacrosse, and I am a SWAT leader.

What is something that makes Berwick unique?

I think the teachers are what makes Berwick such a great place, they all care for their students and really help us succeed. They are also very friendly and you build relationships with them that last longer than just when you have them as a teacher, I still have great relationships with teachers that I had my freshman year. 

Why did you chose to come to (or stay at) Berwick?

I chose to come to Berwick because of hockey and also because I fell in love with the campus when I visited.

Why do you like being a tour guide?

I like being able to help get the school the best kids and the way I contribute is by getting as many kids interested and wanting to come to Berwick as possible. I also enjoy showing off what our school is all about.
