CLASS Scholars attend high schools all across Nashville and bring to the Seminars a variety of interests and experiences. In the Student Spotlight feature, we’ll be letting you know a little more about who the CLASS Scholars are and what they do besides attend Seminars!
Shems – Hillsboro High School – Class of 2017
by Jenifer Abercrombie
In his time away from school Shems enjoys filmmaking. A fan of shows like Doctor Who, he is drawn to the action and sci-fi genres. He likes to be involved in not only the ‘ideological’ part of the filmmaking process, but also the manual portion, often using his spare time to build props. Shems is also an extracurricular math tutor and enjoys swimming.
Shems says the CLASS Seminars have so far been an “unforgettable experience.” He particularly enjoyed Dr. Mary Vaughn’s seminar “The Dating Game” because of his interests in psychology. He also likes the preview of college classes that the seminars give the Scholars.
