Says Burton: In my Competitive Sports class, Ben demonstrates an understanding of being a part of a team, how to respond to winning and losing, and how to prepare and work to improve as a player. He is a skilled athlete and competitor - but what makes him special is the manner in which he carries himself. He is tough on the field/court, but a gentleman and respectful person off the field/court. He is a pleasure in class and always seems to be smiling.

In Weight Training, where students work out at their own pace and based on their own desires and goals, Carissa has influenced others to work harder because of her efforts.
