In his own words:

“MPA has made me the person that I am today. I have learned so much throughout the 14 years I have been at this school. I’ve learned how to become the best version of myself. There have been so many great opportunities that have been given to me since I have been at this school. I have had the chance to make so many friends here that I’m still friends with today. I’ve gotten the chance to travel the world and see some of the world’s greatest landmarks. MPA has been like a second home to me. Being able to make a connection with each and every one of my teachers is truly a gift and I want to thank them for helping me throughout these past four years. As a lifer at MPA, I will never forget the moments I shared and memories that I will never forget.”

His teacher says:

“Eric has a passion for basketball and is one of the most sincere members of his class. During the summer he has worked as a counselor with the sports camp. He has done an excellent job of being patient with and instructing the students that he works with. Eric has a big heart and is always willing to help others. That will benefit him when he goes to college and for the rest of his life.”
