Senior at Greenfield HS; Member of Summer Research Team
My name is Andrew Campbell, and I am a Senior at Greenfield High and member of the Summer Research team for this summer. At Greenfield HS, I am involved in the Beta Club, Student Council, FBLA, Spanish Club, and "Mathlete" group; I have won the TMTA math competition at UT Martin in various subjects every year for the last 3 years. Outside of School, I am heavily involved in my church and youth group. Two of the most amazing trips I have ever been on were the two mission trips I went on with my church to Cincinnati, Ohio and Sevier County, Tennessee to serve those who needed our help.I try to work hard at school to get the most of my education; I currently hold a 4.0 Quality GPA and a 99.73 Cumulative GPA. Science classes at Greenfield are challenging sometimes, but I enjoy them. Science is one of the most basic studies at school because it examines and describes everything that is material and physical in our world. I think what I enjoy most about studying science is just being able to see what you've learned and apply/observe it in every minute of your life. There is a realness and relevance to science that I admire, and I think this sparks my interest toward Mr. McCall's classes at Greenfield more than anything. I got into the Summer Research team for many reasons, but most of them can be boiled down to just two. Firstly, I enjoy Mr. McCall's classes, and I wanted to learn and experience more about how the Scientific Method is really applied; I thought this was a tremendous opportunity for that. Secondly, college courses in the sciences are much more difficult than those in high school, and I felt that by completing this research and learning some more from Mr. McCall, I would make myself the most prepared I could be for Science at the next level of education. I look forward to working with all these researchers this summer and finding out more about the contents in different waters and their effects.
