My most memorable times have been at Dublin Coffman High School. The students, teachers and all of the activities have molded me into the person I am today. My sophomore year, my sister was killed in a tragic car accident. THis was a very difficult time for me. It was very hard to get back into school and activities. However, without guidance and support from my peers and teachers, I would not have been able to continue with everyday life. They all helped me so much.
I have a desire to "give back" to a school and community that have given me so many opportunities that are priceless. I have the hope to major in special education in college, as that is my passion. After college, I aspire to come back to Coffman and work in the Special Education Department and also coach the Men's Golf Team. It would be a dream of mine to be part of the "Dublin Coffman Golf Dynasty" that was created a long time ago, once again.
For the past four years, I have been involved in the Peer Collaboration Program at Coffman, working with kids that have learning disabilities. This has brought a great connection with students and teachers that I would not trade for anything. It has taught me to be more compassionate, forgiving and patient person.
The people at Dublin Coffman have been great to me. Wonderful administration, students and staff have surrounded me and for that I am forever grateful. I hope someday, I can do the same for a student like me.
