Alex Comfort

Q. In what grade are you currently enrolled?

A. I am in 12th grade at Emmaus High School.

Q. What is your favorite subject? Why?

A. My favorite subject would have to be history. I’m really interested in history for many reasons, but mainly because of what it reveals about people in general. History provides a record of both successes and failures for people to triumph and overcome. Without learning from history, people are doomed to repeat the failures of the past. So, all the lessons history provides truly makes it the most valuable, and my favorite subject.
