Trevor Remeyer, the Scholar of Scholars, will be attending UC Los Angeles in the fall, with ambitions to earn a degree in psychology. Over the course of high school, Remeyer maintained an impressive balance between academic achievement and community and school involvement. He plays and teaches music at Los Rios Rock School, co-founded Students of Orange County 4 Change, and is actively involved in Destination Imagination, a creativity competition, all while maintaining the highest GPA of the class of 2019.
He will most miss “the connections [he] had with [his] teachers and the discourse [he] had with fellow students.” He is most thankful for the teachers who “genuinely cared about [his] education beyond the AP test,” preparing their students for the future by introducing them to both new views of the world and providing wisdom as to how to be a functioning adult.
Remeyer advises underclassmen to not “freak out about trifles or test grades or CSF and NHS or college throughout the entirety of high school. Grades and volunteering probably don’t matter as much as you think, so it’s better pursuing something that you enjoy.”
