Message to graduates: Chase will be talking about resilience and adaptability of his class at Walton throughout all four years, according to his mom Lisa. A quote from his speech: “Here we are: resilient, adaptable, and having dealt with so many ‘firsts;’ no challenge can ever get in our way.”
Highest achievements: “It has been my objective in high school to not only volunteer but to be active and take leadership roles in every aspect of my life: Walton High School, Congregation Etz Chaim (my synagogue), and extracurricular activities such as BBYO. At school, my main commitment has been student government, where I’ve served as class president from sophomore through senior years.
“At Etz Chaim, I was a member of the Friday night Shabbat Sasson music group, where every few weeks I helped lead a musical service for the congregation. My most impactful experience in high school was through BBYO, a Jewish youth group. I served as East Cobb chapter president, Greater Atlanta vice president of membership, and then had the honor of serving as the international vice president of worldwide membership for the entire organization, helping to equip a network of 40 Jewish leaders from 10 countries with leadership skills to use in their cities/regions/countries to build a strong Jewish community.”
Future plans: Chase will be studying business at the University of Georgia.
