JULIE WADLAND STICK CHECK

My favorite inspirational quote is:
“I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle — victorious." — Vince Lombardi

My role model is: Craig Thorn, my junior year English teacher who passed away last summer. He was so well-rounded and had the ability to connect with so many different people on so many different levels. If I could be a fraction of the person he was I will be lucky.

My favorite music group is: The Dave Matthews Band.
