Through academic, artistic and leadership opportunities, each year WRA students cultivate their passions and earn national and international distinctions. In the spirit of learning for life, Pioneers harness these accolades to better display their passions while at Reserve, during summer internships and as they plan for college.
Every year, the list of accolades is different, telling a story about the diverse passions that characterize our student body.
Talented opera singer Rain W. ’20 placed first in Ohio at the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) student auditions. So far, Rain has been accepted to Stanford University and plans to continue studying music in college.
Senior filmmaker Noah L. ’20 used Episode 5 of The WRAp, “Hudson,” (which he co-wrote) as part of his college admission package and secured his acceptance to Princeton.
This summer, Science Department faculty member Dr. Roberto Aguilar will take second year Cancer Immunology lab partners Carl Z. ’21 and Tiger M. ’21 to Hawaii, where they’ll present their Abstracts at the American Association of Immunology Conference. Carl and Tiger will be the only two high school students presenting.
“This conference is full of the World’s leading scientists, doctors and college graduate students — WRA will be the only high school there. Tiger and Carl have worked hard to present unique unpublished research, and the reward is that their data and abstracts will be seen by the most accomplished in the field of Immunology. This is a huge accomplishment for anyone, but it is especially significant for high schoolers.”
The list of Pioneers pursuing passions goes on; like Sam B. ’21, who placed first in the City of Hudson Hack-a-thon, our many Eagle Scouts and Girl Scouts who earn Gold Awards. No matter where your passions lie, Reserve provides opportunities to shine and earn distinction, with lessons and pride to carry through to college and life.
