Senior Spotlight: Maddy Holman

In the final weeks leading up to Graduation Day 2020, EAB will celebrate each of its Seniors via the Senior Spotlight.  Though many of the Senior Traditions cannot happen this year, the High School Faculty is committed to making sure each member of the Class of 2020 knows how much they have meant to this school and how proud we are of them.  Today, the Senior in the spotlight is Maddy Holman. 

Maddy has been a proud and dedicated Bull since arriving on campus in ninth grade.  A stalwart of the EAB stage, Maddy has many happy memories to choose and would find it "hard to even come close to choosing a single favourite memory". But she believes that when she thinks back on EAB, she will recall Field Days foremost, because they "always embody what she has come to love about EAB". Building a "tribe" through teamwork, she recalls "madly cutting up paper", marching around, "ploughing through soccer games", shooting hoops and crazy choreography "all while laughing". The close friendships that Maddy developed became better during these days; she believes that this is the thing she will miss most about EAB. Ever thoughtful, Maddy believes the separation from her pals over the last months have "taught her how to not take our relationships...for granted". Many of her lasting friendships were formed during theatre productions. Maddy considers her life has been "undoubtedly changed" by Ms Riley's shows. Theatre has "become the most important outlet" for Maddy. Her varied roles allowed her to develop "a different Maddy", one who confidently belted out tunes as Fiona in Shrek, while delivering superbly nuanced performances in Shakespeare and Moliere productions. Maddy feels this all led to her growth "as a person". 

Maddy's teachers have seen she is "committed to growth", considering Maddy bold, talented and strong. She impressed her teachers with her enthusiasm and excitement about learning. Her "love of literature...and reading" also impressed her teachers. Maddy's respectful attitude towards her peers and teachers is commmendable. She is also able to stand her "ground when others disagreed" with her, showing her inner strength and courage. She is thanked for "making a difference" in Brazil through her involvement in CAS and NHS. 

Maddy herself would like to thank her family and friends, or her "number one cheerleaders" as she aptly phrases it. She would also like to thank Ms Kate Riley because she always knew Ms Kate was there for her. Also, Maddy would like to thank Mr Jones for "regularly having another book recommendation on hand". 

Following graduation, Maddy will start at Brigham Young Univerity where she might major in nursing, elementary education or graphic design. We recommend she go for education (but we are somewhat biased). What we do know is that Maddy will give 100% to whatever she decides upon. Thank you, Maddy, for the performances and passion you brought to EAB.

Senior Spotlight 2020
Senior Spotlight: Luiz Carvalho
May 27, 2020
Luiz has been a proud and dedicated Bull for the past 13 years. He is part of the fabric of EAB, known and respected by the community for his determination and resilience. Luiz is most proud of how his "hard work was recognised" by his peers and teachers. As Ms Teresa says, "over the years, he has become more and more aware of the opportunity that was in his hands and became a hard working, responsible student".
Senior Spotlight: Luiza Boiteux
May 27, 2020
Arriving on campus in tenth grade, Luiza has had a tremendously positive impact on the community ever since. Indeed, there is not an activity, or event, at the school that has not benefited from Luiza’s involvement in it: from her organization and promotion of fundraisers for her various service commitments, including her work for Crèche Primavera, to her role as Creative Director of the school’s newspaper, the “Bullseye”, to her membership of the National Honor Society, Luiza has graced us with her compassionate presence.
Senior Spotlight: Erick Martins
May 27, 2020
Erick has been a proud member of the EAB Community for the past twelve years. We have watched him grow into a strong and mature man, who can face the challenges that life brings with honesty, grace and dignity. Erick's relationships with teachers and teaching assistants have always been excellent. His favourite memory is of Ms Isabel, who paid him some home visits after his surgery, to tell him she missed his bad jokes. Erick is a great friend; he feels proud of "the people he made friends with" during his years at EAB.
Senior Spotlight: Eduardo Estrella de Queiroz
May 27, 2020
Eduardo has been a proud Bull since arriving on campus in second grade. A keen sportsman, he has enjoyed many successes on the football field. He says his favourite memories will be "all the soccer memories". He demonstrated leadership skills on and off the pitch. His contributions to leading EduArtes was always appreciated by the student-teachers, Ms Bree and the learners. His competitive nature drove others to be better.
Senior Spotlight: Andre Nelson
May 26, 2020
Andre has been a dedicated member of the EAB Community since arriving on campus in tenth grade. Although Andre's sports involvement was hampered by injury, he still managed to leave his mark on sports in the High School. From captaining the softball team in his Junior year to the incredble dedication and commitment he made to improving his basketball skills, Andre's growth as a player and leader has been wonderful.
