James: 2009

James is a freshman at Griffin High School. He got straight A’s in his first semester. He excels in math and science, since they come naturally to him. He likes taking yoga and cross-fit for PE and he’s doing coding and tech classes for electives (surprise!).

He is well-liked by teachers and other students. He continues to have a great sense of humor and has real gift for making spontaneous puns and one-liners. So we think he’ll be an engineer or a physicist with a sideline as a standup comic.

He’s 15 now! It may not show in the picture, but he’s about 5’11. At home, I call him “shorty.” Overall, he’s a fantastic, compassionate, hilarious, brilliant, and soulful person. But, I swear—I’m not biased!
