Joel has been at PCS since 7th grade and he says that he is thankful that he has found groups of friends that have been there for him all these years, and who will stay connected with him even after everyone goes their separate ways. Something valuable that Joel has learned at his time at PCS is to not be afraid to make friends. When asked what he might miss after graduation, Joel said he would miss student-held events. He added that it was always fun getting together to do games and activities together, and to overall have a good time with friends. When we asked Joel if he had a meaningful scripture verse, he said Romans 15:7 stands out to him: “Therefore welcome one another, just as Christ welcomed you." After graduation, Joel plans on going into the music industry to produce and mix his own music as a DJ. Best of luck, Joel!
