Moffet, Quentin - 5531063

Each senior class is made up of students with diverse interests and talents. The School has left its mark on them and they on it. In the little time we have left together, we'd like to offer some portraits of our seniors, to show how they have benefited from their time at Randolph and are prepared for what's next.

What do you remember about your first day at Randolph?

I came to Randolph in 1st grade after finishing kindergarten at Monte Sano. On my first day at Randolph, my teacher, Mrs. Cotton, asked if there was anyone that I would like to be friends with in the class since I was new. I pointed at Nathaniel Anderson, who became my first friend at Randolph and continues to be to this day.

The teachers care about you at Randolph, not just your grades and academic skills, but the friends and connections you make along the way.

What does the Honor Code mean to you?

The honor code has been something that allows teachers and students to trust each other. The mutual trust makes the classroom experience so much better.

What has been your greatest challenge at Randolph?

My toughest challenge at Randolph was making it through junior year. I took two AP classes and two honors classes, on top of band, track, and leading sparring classes at Yong-In martial arts. Though I thought about dropping some of these classes in the beginning of the year, I decided to push through them. I eventually made a schedule that would help me be more efficient with my work, where I would wake up at 5 a.m. every morning to do my APUSH reading. Although I can say it was very stressful at times, I think that it was worth it all.

What activities have you been involved with at Randolph?

I’ve done taekwondo, saxophone playing, Youth Leadership Council, track and football.

Where can you be found during your free periods?

During my free periods, you could almost always find me in the weight room with Coach Gaunt.

It's a good day when lunch is...

Shrimp tacos are definitely the best thing Mr. Keith serves in the lunchroom. They are a rare delicacy here at Randolph.

Closing Convocation - 6765995 (1)Favorite Randolph tradition?

My favorite Randolph tradition is the Kindergarten buddy experience. I remember when I first met our kindergarten buddy. He was so excited to meet Tripp and me, even though he had never met us before. Being able to connect the oldest students at the School with the youngest students is really something that ties the whole school together.

Favorite Randolph memory?

Hiking in Zion National Park during my senior Interim trip. The view was incredible, and the exhausting hike to get there gave me a greater appreciation for having made it to the top.

How would you hope to be remembered?

I’d just like to be remembered for working really hard all four years, both inside the classroom and out.
