JoceLynn Labossiere ’19

Brooklyn, New YorkBoarding Student
JoceLynn may miss her first family, but at George School she found her second one.

Is it hard to live away from home? What helps?

Kim Hebron, an administrative assistant in the deans’ office, is my GS mother. Being a boarder means that I often do not see my family, but she helps me feel less homesick. She is always there to give me warm hugs and kind words. She has truly helped to bring out the better me.

Living in a dorm is also an amazing experience. It is as if your best friends become your siblings because you live with them and see them constantly.

What have you learned from being an athlete?

Playing three sports, I learned that it is more about the team than about me as an individual. It is amazing to make ten shots in basketball, but it is more important that the team wins the game.
