Arthur has a passion for robotics. He explained, “My grandfather started giving me LEGO sets at the age of 3, and by the time I was 6 I was putting together K’NEX building sets with over 300 pieces. I’ve been interested in building and designing things ever since, and that’s what sparked me to joined the robotics club my 8th grade year.” He’s an instrumental part of Montgomery Catholic’s robotics club, and has been awarded champion status at six different robotics tournaments. He has a great deal of pride in his school— he shared, “My favorite part about attending Catholic is that I’m getting a good education and learning how to grow closer to God. MCPS inspires you and makes you feel like family.” When asked to share the most important lesson he’s learned in life so far, Arthur answered, “I’ve got to put something into life before I can expect to get anything out. Hard work pays off!”
