My Capstone Project would be about... Rose Valland, a member of the French Résistance who helped save artwork during World War II, or The Battle of Hastings and its impact on the development of English, or the music of J.S. Bach.
If I could have dinner with anyone (dead or alive), I would choose... Alexander von Humboldt, Mary Baker Eddy, Martin Luther King Jr., and my grandfather.
Things I love about Belmont Day are... the joy and professionalism of the staff, and the caring families.
