Tell us about the teacher, coach or administrator who made a difference in your life: At Episcopal, my history teacher, Dr. Bruce Hall, has helped shape me into the student I am today. In his classes, I learn not only the importance of making it a personal priority to better my knowledge of the world around me, but also to question everything I see, hear and read. His teaching has helped develop within me a habit of always asking “why” and has made me confident in my own skills as a student. Dr. Hall has helped me realize that I will be a student for life and has encouraged me to embrace the process of learning.
