Student Ambassador Profile: Corrine McGrath ’18

mcgrathAs a Student Ambassador, you are often the first White Mountain student that visitors meet. What do you enjoy about this important role?

I enjoy the positivity of this role and the opportunity to welcome new people and show them around the school. That’s definitely my favorite part, the spirit of it all. I want people to want to come here just as I wanted to come here when I visited and toured. I want to share the positivity.

Tell me about a class you are really enjoying this year and what you like about it.

I’m really enjoying Spiritual Memoir this semester. I’m enjoying it because it pushes me to think deeply about my memories and about past experiences that I probably wouldn’t have spent time thinking about if it weren’t for this class. I also like how it’s pushing me to improve my writing and to make it more interesting.

Congratulations on winning a recent freestyle ski competition! How long have you been skiing and what do you enjoy about it?

I’ve been skiing at Cannon Mountain since I was about three years old. This year was my first year competing on the freestyle ski team. I’ve skied in the park more this year than I ever have before and I love it! What I enjoy most about skiing is the idea that the more you do it, the better you get. I just want to ski to get better and to have fun and to just be out there on the mountain.

What is your favorite place on campus and why?

I have a few favorite places on campus but my favorite room is the art studio in the Catherine Houghton Arts Center. The windows take up a whole entire wall and it’s always so bright and cheerful inside. I also love how it is a bit messy but somehow still organized and put together. It reminds me of my life.

What are your hopes for your last semester at White Mountain? Are there things you’d like to accomplish or new things you’d like to try?

I just want to make the best out of this last semester at White Mountain. It’s beginning to hit me that this really is my last year of high school and that I won’t be coming back next year. Before the end of the year, I’d like to participate in more activities and spend more time with my friends at school in order to make memories that will stick with me throughout the rest of my life.
