Phillips’ favorite high school memory is his flex class with Mrs. Heller. He says: “I always had fun in flex and laughed constantly.”

After graduation, Phillips’ is going to miss seeing his teachers and classmates in the hallways. 

His favorite teacher is Kristen Heller. 

“This is due to her outgoing personality and because she is easy to get along with,” he says.

Additionally, he says his mentors are his friends because “they are always there for me.”

Phillips’ favorite class was metal tech and wood shop. This is because this is what he enjoyed to do.

John Michael’s favorite school lunch is mozzarella sticks.
