Quote from teacher: “Joey has natural intellectual talents that go far beyond the ability level of most high school students,” said Josh Eppert, Advanced Placement English teacher. “He has an insatiable curiosity and tenacious work ethic that keeps him from succumbing to the pitfalls of laziness and complacency that unfortunately can accompany the academic lives of gifted students. He is also incredibly funny and has a dynamic, engaging personality that is appreciated by both his teachers and peers.”
