Quote from teacher: "Elvhin is a hard working student in my physics class," said Scott Secrest, physics teacher and Science Department Chair. "He loves the activities where he can see physics in action, whether it is building a catapult, analyzing the rides at Cedar Point, or helping third graders build mousetrap cars. Elvhin is a responsible student and he works hard to figure things out. His hard working attitude and compassion that he shows for others will make him successful at whatever he chooses to do."
