Within 3 years of lessons, Peter was almost as superb as his teacher. At first his parents were incredibly supportive of his love for the piano. However, when Peter got older, his parents sent him to the Imperial School of Jurisprudence to become a civil servant. Even though this was a major setback for Peter’s career in music, he never lost his love for playing. Peter continued playing through his schooling.
This was quite a feat for a 20 year old young man from Buchannan County Virginia. The next step was training on job with a Trooper and then I was off to the Virginia State Police Academy for intense training for a 36 week period. I graduated from the academy in 1991 at the age of 21. Therefore, graduating from the Virginia State Police Academy was one of the most important moments of my life because it taught me discipline, self-worth and made me realize the value of an education and that if you put your mind to it you can do
It turned out to be probably the finest meal we’ve eaten in New Orleans. He also made a very generous contribution to our education fund. It’s difficult to put in words how grateful Misa and I feel for that, but it really makes a significant difference for us. Also, tonight I watched the final lecture of my first year of medical school tonight! Now all I need to do is study hard over the weekend to prepare for my final exams, which could prove difficult while I’m in SLC for the funeral.
Math was always my favorite subject in school ever since Elementary school. The subject fascinated me because it was not only about numbers; rather, it enabled me to think critically and analytically about the world itself. When I took Math 20-1 last semester, I, along with many other people, struggled with the course because it progressed much faster than Math 10-1. However, Math 30-1 has become much easier as I understood the material within fast pacing. The class reduced from its size from 50 students to 20 students because of the pacing, which was fine by me as I enjoyed classes with small amounts of people.
I have played the keyboard, guitar, bass guitar, drums, and vocals with my church band onstage with different songs every time I get up to play. I have led classes in music by myself and through teams for five years. After teaching piano for two years, I got into a discussion with my dad about leading a kids music band. He thought it would be a great opportunity to lift my skills, as they say in music, an octave higher. I thought it was a brilliant idea!
Junior year I was settled down and determined to improve my academics; by the end of first semester of junior year I had raised my GPA by one point. Attendance I’ve had exemplary attendance throughout my four years of attending high school. I’ve always had great attendance because I don’t like to take days off. Part of being an adult is doing stuff you don’t want to do such as going to school to expand your education. I feel that my exemplary attendance has contributed to my improved grades and work ethic.
Paul Farrow is a dedicated employee with a tremendously strong work ethic whose hard work, dedication and conscientious efforts have paid off significantly for West Potomac HS since becoming the operating engineer on November 25, 2013. He has worked hard every day to ensure that all areas in the school are comfortable for the school’s students and staff. At the time Paul transferred from his position as HVAC Technician to the Operating Engineer of West Potomac High School, the preventative maintenance for the school had fallen more than a decade behind. The lack of a qualified reliable operating engineer negatively impacted the schools learning environment. However, Paul has been able to bring all of the outstanding preventative maintenance
My Michigan Hero “You never know until you try” that 's what my brothers always tell me when they think I should try something new. My oldest brother Jacques is 23 years old and just graduated from Michigan State University and is now attending grad school, my second oldest brother Jaquil is 21 years old and is a Senior at Western Michigan and finally my third oldest brother Jessiah is 16 years old and is a junior in high school at Jackson High School. The reason my brothers inspire me is because they teach me new things that they learned. One way my brothers inspire me is they always motivate me to get better and are always confident in me. Ways they motivate me to get better is because they always tell me I can do better or they say they can do better than that.
