Claire Heydacker ’18

George Washington University
For Claire, playing a role on her team did not necessarily involve playing at all.

Describe something you realized from being on a sports team.

I sprained my ankle junior year playing tennis and missed three-quarters of the season. This was a very hard time for me. However, I realized that even though I could not physically play tennis, my teammates and coach still thought of me as an important member, including me as much as possible in activities and support.

What other extracurricular activity did you enjoy at George School?

The new a cappella club at George School was particularly exciting to me. I was always learning new things about myself and my singing.

More about Claire:

Claire lived in France before coming to the United States and returned there to take part in George School’s French service trip. In addition to being an IB diploma candidate, she took AP courses. On top of tennis, she was on the equestrian team, and beyond a cappella, she was a leader of the French Club.
