ISAAC LENNER

IMG_4360.jpg

Hi! My name is Isaac Lenner and I look forward to helping with anything you may need. I love to watch and play sports. I am the captain of the varsity ice hockey team and I also play varsity lacrosse. I am a very outgoing person and enjoy getting involved with many activities. I am the Senior Class President and have been on student council for all four years of high school. Through this experience I have been able to work on meaningful projects with incredible people! I have been a peer leader since 7th grade and have expanded my leadership to be the co-president of the food sensitivities club and vice president of the FOOD club. My favorite subject in school is math and I really enjoyed AP Statistics last year. Feel free to reach out about anything from navigating high school to who to start in your fantasy lineup!

 

JORDYN LIPKIN

My name is Jordyn Lipkin and I am a senior at Millburn High School. I am verbally committed to play lacrosse at the University of Maryland. I have an older brother and older twin sister. I love watching or taking part in sports and just being active. I am also very interested in learning more about sport medicine which is what I plan on studying in college.


I am a part of the varsity soccer and lacrosse team at Millburn. I am also a part of the CROC club. Outside of school I spend my time playing sports and making myself a better athlete. I enjoy pushing myself to become the best athlete I can be. I also love spending time with my  family and friends. 


A major accomplishment of mine was being awarded MVP of the Under Armour All-America event for my region. 


A class that was challenging for me was global security. I took this class at a younger age and the information that we learned in this class just did not stick too well for me. Another class that is challenging for me is any English class. I am not the best when it comes to writing and finding ways to be creative with my writing which makes English classes hard for me. The last class that was  challenging for me was Spanish 3. I found this class difficult because it was hard for me to remember all of the new vocabulary and rules that we would learn.


A class that I really enjoyed was biology. I find it really interesting to learn about the body and why we are the way we are. Since I was really interested in this type of class, I did really well. Another class that I found really interesting was US History II. I liked this class because I enjoyed learning about all of the more recent events in history that got the world to where it is today.

 

JACOB POLLACK

Hi everyone! My name is Jacob Pollack. I have been very active at MHS in a variety of activities. I have been in MHS’s musicals and plays over the past 4 years, as well as being a part of the Drama Club’s yearly cabarets and events. I have participated in Cross Country (2 years), Track & Field (2 years), and Swimming (4 years), all of which at the Varsity level. I am also on a club swim team which I devote over 20 hours a week to, so I understand the importance of time-management. I am a big Disney lover, to the point that I created Millburn High School’s Disney Club (you should join). I have also been in Chorus for 4 years, created a performing arts club for students with disabilities (we would love new volunteers!), and have been a member of Peer Leaders for 4 years. I also have been in History Bowl for 3 years. I am also currently the head editor of the Front News section of our school newspaper, The Miller. Besides my extracurriculars, I have been in 11 AP courses and tons of accelerated courses, so I am quite knowledgable on each course, its teachers, and the workload required to do well. If you have any questions about anything, I would love to answer them. I am someone who asks tons of questions in school, so I do not discriminate against any question, even if you think they are stupid or basic.

Hi! I’m Alex, and I’d love to answer any and all of the questions that you may have! I am the longest standing member of Paper-mill Children’s Theatre on Tour, a selective group of performers throughout the state that puts on productions for children with disabilities. I am also an intern at Paper-mill’s Theatre For Everyone sessions, where I help teach improv classes to kids and adults with disabilities. Inspired by my work at the Paper-mill, I co-founded a club at MHS called InterACT Club, where we provide students with disabilities the opportunity to engage in musical activities. 

I am also the co-founder of the Safe Schools for Alex Club, in which we lead brainstorm meetings with students where we assess school safety and present our findings to the Superintendent, District Security Advisor, and National School Safety Activist, Max Schacter.  Some of my other extracurriculars include being the Head Editor of the “Student Spotlight” section of The Miller, tutoring at Mindset Tutoring, and being the Vice President of Princeton Model Congress. 

 By the end of my senior year, I will have taken 8 AP courses (European History, Language & Composition, Spanish Language & Culture, Government & Politics, Psychology, Environmental Science, Literature & Composition, and Comparative Government & Politics). I enjoyed (and am currently enjoying) all of them! The most challenging class I have taken in high school was accelerated chemistry with Mr. Ramos, but I learned a lot!
