This week, we finish the rising Juniors with McKenzie Welter! This summer, she worked in the accounting office of the high school of former Tufflepuff Michael Sanders. During her time at the high school, McKenzie did a lot of paper shredding, a fun past time for many, and balancing statements. Now, she is studying abroad in the land where sheep reign over people: New Zealand. She's enjoying New Zealand's gorgeous mountains and rainbows and finds the natives incredibly funny and welcoming. She's most looking forward to being able to ski in July. Enjoy your time there, McKenzie!
Starting off our rising sophomores is Kevin Dorosh! Kevin is spending his summer coding as an intern at Teradyne. When not coding at work, he can be found playing basketball, baseball, or ping-pong. During the summer, Kevin broke several records in the Teradyne basketball league. You go, Kevin! Outside of work, Kevin is finally educating himself in the way of movies. He's seen at least 10 movies this summer, a record for him.
Next is Jordan Kemp. This summer, Jordan is playing basketball. When he's not tearing up the court, he can be found on his laptop, coding, and spending time with his little brother.
We'll kick off this week with rising Junior, David Stack, whose had quite a busy summer! He is working at Explo at Wellesly college. Explo is a summer program for middle school students. At Explo, David teaches two classes: aeronautical engineering and off-road vehicle design. Outside of classes, David leads activities in the afternoon and evening as well as leading trips on weekends. Explo consists of two 3 week sessions, where each session has approximately 450 middle school students in campus dorms and approximately 100 students who commute to the summer program. David says, "The job is difficult and stressful, but fun and rewarding."
Next is rising Junior, Madeleine Lebovic! Madeleine is spending her summer interviewing taxidermists and studying Russian to "become a spy" (but not really). Other that, she has been hanging out with friends and home and visiting some other quidditch friends in New York! Madeleine will, unfortunately, be gone for the next academic year, as she will be studying abroad in Germany and Russia! We'll miss you Madeleine!
Ian Luo, another one of our rising juniors, is currently backpacking through South America! We hope you're having a lot of fun!
Our last rising junior for this post is Nicolas Sempere. This summer, Nick is working in Boston, doing some coding, keeping it casual. Besides working, Nick is traveling as much as he can this summer. So far, he's made stops in New York City, Albany, and Montreal. But he's not stopping there. Later this month he's making the trip across the Atlantic to Athens and Istanbul. Talk about an awesome trip... Have fun!
