Senior Spotlight: Stephanie Lynch


Introducing Stephanie Lynch, member of the class of 2024! Stephanie is a committed student and is a part of the girls varsity volleyball team and has been playing for several years. She also plays softball and is involved in the musical, in addition to serving as secretary for The Gull. Stephanie flourished during her time at ERHS and has made amazing connections with peers and staff. 

Get to know more about Stephanie. Here are some of her responses to questions about her high school career and post-graduation plans:

What have been your favorite classes? 

“My favorite classes have been band, physics and AP Lang. I have also really liked APES and Business Ownership.”

Who/what motivated or inspired you the most during your time in ERHS?

 “My sister was a big inspiration to me. She always pushed me to try new things. She is one of the reasons I’m playing volleyball and why I’m involved in music.”

What are your plans for the future?

“I’m going to Fairleigh Dickinson University in Florham. ,I’m going to major in business and minor in marketing. While I am there I also want to play volleyball.”

Looking back, if you had the chance to change anything throughout your high school career, what would it be and why? 

“I would want to put myself more out there and have a better connection with all my teachers. Your teachers are always there for you, so use them and always try something out of your comfort zone.”

What advice do you have for next year’s seniors?

“Don’t let senioritis hit you. Keep pushing through it until after AP classes finish or at least after midterms are over.”
