What is your greatest accomplishment to date?

My greatest accomplishment to date is graduating from college Magna Cum Laude with two degrees in four years.

How did Saint Raphael prepare you for high school and college?

SRCS prepared me both academically and socially for my future educational endeavors. I left Saint Raphael with a solid educational background and had no problem jumping right in to the intimidating world of public high school.

Saint Raphael is also where my love for volleyball and basketball began, which I continued to play through high school, and still enjoy playing to date. With these seeds planted at Saint Raphael, I was eventually able to go to my first college choice, NC State.

What is your most memorable moment at Saint Raphael?

One of my most memorable moments was in 7th grade when I was on the first volleyball team and we won our very first match at St. Thomas Moore after a long season of learning and a little bit of struggling because none of us had ever played volleyball before. It was so exciting, and I think it was our only win that year, but it was worth it.Marcus and Jessica Clendenin, July 19 2014
