A valued member of the IHA community, Regine Thimothee, has truly made IHA a better place during her four years as a Blue Eagle. Her classmates and teachers admire her enthusiasm and dedication and think very highly of her character. Regine’s love for technology and computers has set her apart from her classmates, and she won the Soaring Eagle Award for technology during her junior year. She also plans to pursue this passion as she studies cybersecurity and computer science at Rochester Institute of Technology in the fall. Regine hopes to one day become a cyber security analyst.
Regine has also been an active member in many at IHA, including Knitting Club, Robotics Club, Wellness Walkers, and National Art Honor Society. She also gives back to the community outside of school, as she has volunteered at Oasis, a shelter for women and children living in poverty, once a week this past year.
In the classroom, Regine has excelled, remaining on honor roll for the majority of her IHA career. When asked to name a favorite class, she found that she considered many of them her favorites, including environmental science, physics, and most of her math classes.
Her favorite memory as an IHA girl dates back to sophomore year, where she dressed up as the dolphin that went viral on the Internet after being associated with a question on that year’s PSAT. Regine shared that what she will miss most about IHA are her friends and teachers, as they made her time at IHA memorable.
When asked to share some thoughts of Regine, senior physics teacher Mrs. Adamo only had good sentiments to share. She expressed that “Regine is the type of student a teacher hopes for – she cares about learning, not just for the grade, but because she knows it will help her to be the best version of herself.” Clearly, Regine has embodied the meaning of an IHA girl and continues to serve as a model for her peers.
In her four years at IHA, Regine Thimothee has contributed greatly to the school community. We look forward to hearing all of the amazing things that Regine will accomplish in the future, and we are cheering her on as she starts this new chapter of her life!
