What does Shrewsbury mean to me? It is a place for learning, opportunity, and an extended family and community. Words alone may fail to reflect the magnitude of importance in which the school means to me. Although known for its academic prowess, the correct blend of activities and opportunities away from class is what has made my time at Shrewsbury truly memorable. It is during times, in sports, Duke of Edinburgh award, school events or charity events, that these experiences have not only forged lasting friendships but also shaped me into who I am today. Sharing my experiences at school to my friends at university confirms to me how fortunate I was to have attended Shrewsbury.-Merck Paisalachpong (’13)
