Quote from teacher: “Marissa holds the qualities one wants to see in a student,” said Maryanne Hodge, social studies teacher. “She is bright, inquisitive, tenacious, and achievement-oriented, while at the same time giving, spiritual, and incredibly funny. She is not afraid of hard work, or to stand up for what she believes.”
