Timothy Levine ‘20 said it is the friends he made at Serra that have had a very positive impact on his high school experience. He will always remember the friends he made on the freshman soccer team that have remained close all four years.
Timothy played soccer all four years, track and football freshman year, Kairos 27 and was a member of the National Business Honor Society.
A Serra memory that Timothy will always love is “beating SI three of the four years I was at Serra.” His high school experiences have taught him a lot, he said.
“Serra has allowed me to see the bigger picture in life and not just use my own biased point of view,” he said. “As I learned in physics, every action has an equal and opposite reaction, a concept that I now see can be applied to all aspects of life.”
Timothy will also take with him the memories of chemistry class with Mr. Patterson, and his extreme dedication to teaching.
“His endless knowledge of interesting chemical formulas, his brilliant mnemonic devices like "QTF," "ALDG," "Zip Zap," and "Piz Paz," his outstanding methods of commanding the classroom, and his inspirational commitment to assisting students in chemistry even after school is over, sometimes staying until as late as 5 p.m. offering help to his students.”
While he hopes to study journalism and marketing in college, Timothy is still undetermined as to where he will go to school in the fall.
One thing is for sure, and that’s that he is grateful for the support of his family.
“I would like to thank my parents and other family members for the constant support in my academic career and on my path to becoming an adult. Without them I may not be the person I am today and I would be completely lost without them.”
