MIAA Academic Honor Roll (2017, 2018)

GET TO KNOW
Why did you choose to attend Hope College?
 Because I grew up surrounded by all the great aspects of Hope, and wanted to continue my education and baseball career at an outstanding college!

List a favorite Bible verse and why it is meaningful to you.  Philippians 4:13. It is my favorite Bible verse because it reminds me every day that I can do all things because of Him!

Where is your favorite place on campus? Why? Chapel, because I'm able to worship with all of my best friends on a daily basis. 

What is your favorite pre-game music?  I really enjoy listening to Christian contemporary before I play baseball.

If you could play another sport, regardless of skill, what would it be and why? Basketball, because ball is life!

What is the best advice you’ve ever received? God is never going to give you anything that you can't handle.
