Teachers were not the only community members that Spike learned from.

What did you get from George School athletics?

I had never tried cross-country, wrestling, or baseball before. Now I love them all. George School taught me how to be a real athlete with courage and toughness. From the competition, I learned how to respect other people.

I also made a lot of friends on my teams. It’s not only a friendship but also a kind of brotherhood. And I really thank my coaches for all the help they gave me.

What to you value about your George School education?

I think George School has gifted me with some of the closest friends that I have right now. These friends have helped me to become a much better version of myself.

What is your current plan of study at Emory University?

I am a Physics and Computer Science double major. I am currently working as a software engineer intern for PlayStation Social at San Francisco.
