“You decide what kind of person you are going to be, not by genetics or wealth. Be kind to others because you never know what they are going through. Stay strong and never quit fighting but don’t be afraid to lean on someone.”
– Megan Sommer
Megan Sommer has been very active during her years at Blue Ridge. She has been a part of student council for four years and has been the president for the past two. She is the current president of the National Honors Society. She is the class president for the past two years, and pops in and out of Leo club as she is needed. Sommer has also helped coach junior high softball, along with playing softball throughout her high school career.
Sommer’s advice towards underclassman includes, “work hard for your future self and you will be thankful but also enjoy the moments with your friends because I promise you they come and go all too quickly.” She also states to the upperclassman to, “stay true to who you are and don’t let others change how you feel, everyone feels so pressured to do what everyone else does, but be who you are meant to be and the right people will find you.”
Her plans after high school include attending the University of Scranton or Marywood University for Exercise Science and going on to get a doctorate degree to be able to become a Sports Medicine Physician. During college, Sommer hopes to pursue an opportunity to play softball. Megan’s dream job would include any job in sports medicine that would bring out her love and passion for sports and burning desire to help anyone she can. Sommer knows that the next few years will have new opportunities and challenges but she believes after the things she has accomplished at Blue Ridge she will be prepared for what’s to come.
