Eagle Examiner

Ann Sumner Thorp
Always offering a warm smile or kind word, Ann Sumner Thorp provides a breath of fresh air to RMA every time she steps on campus. Ann Sumner not only shares her leadership skills as co-editor in the Media Office, but as a Student Government officer, member of the girls’ varsity tennis team, co-leading Lunch Bunch, and also by example, her kind-hearted persona never failing. Anyone who knows Ann Sumner will undoubtedly know of her love for Camp Seafarer and the sure impact she has on the campers she meets there. As the year progresses, I am excited to see Ann Sumner grow further as co-editor, and I “shore” am  grateful for her contributions! To learn more about Ann Sumner, please read the following interview:


  1. What grade did you start RMA? 1st grade

  2. Why did you decide to participate in the Media Office this year? I love writing and have always enjoyed reading the Eagle Examiner. Media Office lets me do both!

  3. What is one fact about yourself that few people know about? I can juggle and have been playing violin for 11 years.

  4. What is your favorite quote and why does that speak to you? "You can't change the direction of the wind, but you can adjust your sails." - Jimmy Dean. I chose this quote because it encourages me to overcome and persevere through any obstacle. Plus I love to sail!

Ann Sumner Thorp, Co- Editor
