Congratulations to Elias Andrew Deeb ‘19, who has been named the Bishop Kenny High School student of the month for February. Elias was selected for his Character – Respect and Integrity. In Elias’ words, “I really enjoy my friends and meeting new people. I try to never hold a grudge and always tell the truth and not hurt anyone’s feelings in the process.” His favorite class at BK is calculus, but his favorite teacher is Mrs. Schmitt, his junior AP chemistry teacher. She had this to say about Elias, “He has a quiet demeanor which might make you think that he is not engaged in the discourse but upon further discussion with him you quickly realize his incredible depth of understanding and his high intellectual skills! He is a model student and a pleasure to teach!”
Elias has a strong academic schedule and carries a 4.286 GPA. He has played on the varsity tennis team since his freshmen year at BK and really loves playing tennis. He has over 100 service hours and enjoys working at St. John the Divine’s vacation bible school every summer. Elias’ goal is to become a medical doctor with a focus on endocrinology. He would like to follow in his father’s footsteps and join his father’s practice.
