Tell us about the teacher, coach or administrator who made a difference in your life: My JROTC instructors, MSG Dunn and LTC Brown, are the teachers who pushed me since my ninth-grade year of high school to be the person I am today. They taught me that it is best to always have a plan; otherwise, you plan to fail. Through them both, I’ve learned a lot about myself, and it has helped me plan for the future ahead.
