Every year Rocky Mount Academy gets a few new students. Being such a small school, everyone has probably already noticed these new faces around campus. But to most people, our new students are strangers. To help people get to know them, I asked some of them to do an interview with a few questions. Below are their responses:

Macie Barnes, Junior:
Did you go to any other schools before this? Before RMA I went to Rocky Mount Prep
What’s the biggest difference between this school and your old one? The main difference here is that the teachers and students actually care about getting proper education.
What is your favorite class and/or teacher? My favorite class is Drama and that would be with Ms. Whitehurst.
What is one thing you would like other people to know about you (Hidden talent, hobby, etc.) That’s a tough question… I’m a traditional artist.

Ayden Bilicki, Freshman:
Did you go to any other schools before this? Yes, I went to St. Peters.

What is your favorite class and/or teacher? Biology (with Mrs. Lehnes)
What is one thing you would like other people to know about you (Hidden talent, hobby, etc.)? I don’t know… Just because I lived in Singapore doesn’t mean I don’t know what the states are like.
