Garrett might be working for NASA one day as it has been his lifelong dream! Recently, Garrett was selected by NASA, alongside his partner,  to present a virtual reality asteroid simulation in front of engineers and visitors at the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX. This resulted in a letter of recommendation from NASA, recognition by the Bozeman school board, and recognition by Senator Tester. It’s no surprise, then, that engineering classes have often been Garrett’s favorite at BHS, in particular, the Engineering Capstone/NASA HUNCH class last year.


Garrett is involved in Leo Club, Speech and Debate, and the Special Olympics. He’s also been involved in  almost every single dance since the 2021-22 school year, mainly helping with the setup and running of the dances, but occasionally helping with the planning, such as with prom. For a short while, during the school year of 2021-2022, he served as the treasurer for the BHS Robotics Club, but resigned due to scheduling conflicts with Speech and Debate. Additionally, last year, Garrett  had the opportunity to participate in the inaugural BHS Cello Ensemble, although, unfortunately, the ensemble didn't continue.


Garrett is most proud of his work with the Special Olympics. He says it, “challenged me to reconsider ways I can approach different people and situations. It helped me develop leadership skills by learning to better understand the people I'm working with and helped me proactively take the initiative to effectively communicate, collaborate, and guide, while adjusting to meet the needs of those around me.”


In life after high school, Garrett hopes to find a career that intersects humanitarian aid with his interests in physics, engineering, and mathematics.
