Stinger: What’s your favorite memory from marching band? 

Loeper: Going to the diner with the drumline. 

Stinger: Who was your favorite teacher at Emmaus and why? 

Loeper: Mr. Carolla or Mr. Ohl. Mr. Carolla is because I had him as a freshman. Both of them helped me with my college applications. Mr. Ohl helped me with physics last year because I taught it to myself. 

Stinger: How have you changed since freshman year? 

Loeper: I became more confident and am more willing to give help. 

Stinger: How do you think you balance all the stuff that you do? 

Loeper: Excellent question. No idea. I have good time management. I’m very organized, and I have a schedule, all the time. 

Stinger: Do you have any advice for underclassmen? 

Loeper: Ask for help. Try your best.
