My name is Will, hailing from Bakersfield, California, and I am a sophomore. One of the biggest reasons I chose to come to Stevenson was because of the amazing radio program – and of course, the location helps! In fact, I am on the varsity sailing team, taking full advantage of the nearby ocean.

Being part of the resident community has given me the opportunity to make great friends. I really enjoy Vespers, a monthly opportunity for thought-provoking and in-depth speeches from our community. My dad has been my idol growing up, and some day I hope to be a reporter, doing field work.

You are with ten other people and you're hiking, on average, about 4.5 miles each day. This isn't flat terrain either as you are going up and down hills constantly while, the roads seem to have developed an incredible ability to go the wrong direction. But if I

My Desk

There is one thing in my room that I believe completely represents me best: my desk and everything on it. Starting from my top shelf, there is my small hat collection, a board game I have never played, and some laundry detergent. The hats are the particularly notable considering hats never look good on me.
