St. Paul valedictorian to combine love of math and sports in college PDF Print E-mail

BRISTOL — St. Paul Catholic High School valedictorian Brendan Carroll is planning for a future in sports analytics.

A Southington resident, the son of Tom and Lisa Carroll, he is looking to major in mathematics or quantitative economics at Providence College to launch him toward his career goal.

Math is his favorite subject, and he said he is also considering a double major in Spanish.

However, the highlight of high school for him was playing sports. He was on the varsity football and basketball teams all four years, captaining both teams as a junior and senior. He also played varsity baseball in his first three years of high school and was on the varsity outdoor track and field team as a senior.

Carroll was on the all-NVL Copper Division Team and the All-Bristol Press City Team for both football and basketball and a Bristol Sports Hall of Fame scholar athlete, among his many awards and honors.

“I really enjoy forming bonds with my teammates and coaches,” he said. “Those relationships are very special. It’s an honor to put on the uniform and represent the school as I play these sports that I enjoy.”

Besides sports, he considers student government his favorite high school activity, which he was involved in for all four years.

“Student government is a club does a lot of work organizing events for the school and the community,” he said. “For example we’ve coordinated the Oktoberfest at St. Paul and we just put on our annual BARC prom, which is an event we host in our cafeteria for clients at the Bristol Adult Resource Center.”

In addition, Carroll has also been vice president of the Class of 2015, captain of the Academic Quiz Bowl team, blood drive conference representative for the American Red Cross, speaker at the St. Paul Circle of Honor dinner, a member of the National Honor Society and the Spanish Honor Society for three years, a volunteer for Habitat for Humanity and the United Way Day of Caring, a tutor at the Cambridge Park housing project, a peer tutor at St. Paul, a volunteer basketball coach in the Junior Falcon Basketball League, etc.

St. Paul Salutatorian to Attend Wesleyan for Premed Studies PDF Print E-mail

BRISTOL – Come this fall, Sydney Riddick will be attending Wesleyan University, with the plan to major in cognitive neuropsychology at Wesleyan University.

The salutatorian of St. Paul Catholic High School’s Class of 2015, is a New Britain resident and the daughter of Steven and Dorothy Riddick.

“I took psychology here and I absolutely loved it,” she said. “I loved learning how the brain works and how people learn, so I definitely want to continue to study that. Because I want to do pre-med I brought in neuroscience as well and combine the two.”

Her eventual goal is to go to medical school and specialize in neurology.

A highlight of high school for her was tutoring younger students in math, Spanish, and theology.

“By tutoring I was able to connect with people on a personal level, help them recognize their strengths and their weaknesses, and help them achieve their goals in areas they felt they were weak in,” she said.

Riddick said her favorite activity at St. Paul was being on the math team. Second favorite was the Journalism Club, where she worked on the school paper.

“We didn’t have too many people in Journalism but we experimented with different strategies of how to make up for that,” she said.

Early in her high school years, Riddick was also a member of the Art, Photography, Food, Movie, Renaissance, and Spanish clubs, as well as Student Government and working on the yearbook, and played tennis.

Later on, she took ballet, joined the Culture and Language Club and the Mission Club, and was a member of the National Honor Society and Spanish Honor Society as a sophomore, junior and senior.

She received awards for excellence in Algebra I, English I, Keyboarding, Spanish I, Religion IV, and AP English IV; the Yale Book Award; the Michael J. Lepore Family Scholarship; the Rebecca Grigos Memorial Scholarship; and the Superintendent’s Summa Scholar Award; among others.

Riddick also did volunteer service for Wilbert Snow Elementary School in Middletown, the New Britain branch of the NAACP, and the Bristol Boys & Girls Club Cambridge Park Unit.
