Eli Mayberry, son of Connie and Rodney Mayberry, is a senior at Battle Ground Academy and this week’s Student of the Week.
He is a member of the Varsity Football and Baseball teams and is the President of BGA’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
Mayberry said that one of his biggest passions is serving others. “…I have been helped so much during my life,” he said. “I like to return the favor.”
His biggest role model and inspiration is Captain Mark Rogers. He said he looks up to him for his guidance and help with his future. “He helped me in achieving my goal in getting into the college I wanted and taught me many lessons along the way,” he said.
His favorite class at BGA is Finance. He said he really enjoys it because he gets the opportunity to learn about handling money and it prepares him for the future.
After graduating from BGA, he plans to enroll at the United States Naval Academy to become a pilot.
