How did St. George’s prepare you for college, career, and life?
St. George’s gave me practical, hands on experience with an interdisciplinary curriculum and emphasis on technology. Tactically, using laptops in our day to day school work at St. George’s prepared me for success in college and my work. To this day, my colleagues ask me how I became so skilled in Microsoft PowerPoint, and I always attribute it to SGIS, dating all the way back to my elementary computer lab days at the Germantown campus. Socially and professionally, St. George’s also gave me opportunities to develop strong interpersonal and leadership skills to confidently navigate life dynamics and circumstances that others may find difficult to handle. Overall, St. George’s equipped me with a holistic eduction and lasting friendships which have served me well in a multitude of ways - too many to count!

Which teacher had the greatest impact on you and why?
Mr. Ferguson - From such a young age, I remember looking up to Mr. Ferguson as a leader that was a perfect balance of fun and work. From dressing up to be our talent show MC to leading the school through continuous growth and expansion, he was so well-respected and created such a welcoming environment for every student and family there.
Our spirit weeks! The amount of energy, outrageous outfits, dances, videos, and just overall fun that flooded the hallways and pep rallies was contagious and leaves a lasting impression on you. You just can’t help but smile reminiscing on the fun!
What advice would you give to St. George’s students or young alumni today?
