Dedication In and Out of the Classroom

By Phillip Le

Senior Claire Driscoll’s role model is her father.

“He is smart and a hard worker, and is dedicated to what he does,” said Ms. Driscoll.

When she’s in school, Ms. Driscoll is an active student participating in the Latin Club and Campus Ministry. Outside of school, she is a student-athlete with the crew and swim teams.

She participates in crew as a stroke, the position which sets the pace for the boat, because it “helps her prepare for the swim team when the season comes around.”

Because she is a swimmer her favorite athlete is Michael Phelps.

In school, her favorite subject is English. “It involves reading and giving my opinion which is what I like,” said Ms. Driscoll. She is not, however, a fan of Science and Math. “They are too abstract and I like things that are straightforward.”

As a senior, Ms. Driscoll is preparing for college.  She is hoping to attend Washington and Lee University. She is also considering the University of Mary Washington, and maybe even William and Mary.  

Ms. Driscoll has plans to study English and journalism because “it’s always been my thing, just like in school. It all ties into my love for English.”

If there is one thing that annoys her, other than homework, she “strongly dislikes pests.”

When she is not doing extracurricular activities or is in the classroom, Ms. Driscoll is usually on social media, usually on Instagram. She also likes to shop at the new Norfolk Premium Outlets.
