Jeff Miekley ’19 (Seton House)
Scholar and Patriot
“At Trinity, I was able to expand my knowledge and learn to work hard to achieve my goals. This will help me when I continue my education at Widener University and work to become an officer in the United States Army.”
On support at Trinity:
Over my past four years at Trinity, I have been able to take a variety of different courses from honors to AP to electives that have helped me to expand my knowledge. Being able to take classes like AP Biology and Anatomy & Physiology concurrently has helped me to acquire a solid foundation for my future career in medicine.
I’ve been provided the opportunity to go to Mass and adoration each month as well as to take theology each year which has focused on numerous topics that have helped increase my knowledge and strengthen my faith. The community service requirement has impressed upon me my duty to use my time and talents to give back to my community. I’ve learned the importance of finding some meaningful service that I can sustain beyond my time at Trinity.
Athletically, I’ve made some of the best memories while having fun and excelling on the field with some of my best friends. Lastly, Trinity has given me the chance to meet some amazing people and create friendships and bonds that will last a lifetime.
On reaching his goals:
Attending Trinity has helped me reach my goals of growing as a person and preparing me for college. It has provided me the opportunity to learn in a setting that is caring and helpful. Excelling at academics is and has been a goal of mine throughout my high school career, and with the help of the teachers I have been able to do this. The caring environment has been conducive to my success as a student. My teachers have been willing to go out of their way to make time before or after school to help me out.
On the benefit of Trinity:
Coming to Trinity has benefited me by making me a better person. I have grown both academically and spiritually. I’ve been able to grow in my faith because of the warm environment of people who feel comfortable practicing their faith in a school setting. Trinity is a place that is full of great people who are kind and always willing to help you out. No matter who you are, there is somewhere you can fit in and find a group of friends.
On his future:
This fall I will be attending Widener University to study biology. I will also be playing on the men’s soccer team and will be a cadet in their Army ROTC program. After college, I hope to be able to go to medical school while serving as an officer in the United States Army. I hope to have a career in medicine and in the Army.
