Mikey has experienced much success through his extra- and co-curricular involvement at Schaumburg High School. A four-year member of the band program, Mikey has been a member of the District 211 Honor Band and currently plays in the Wind Symphony, where his acute attention to detail makes him an outstanding performer. Mikey has additionally demonstrated strong leadership through his involvement in music.

He now serves on the BPA leadership team and is a finance level leader, leveraging his passion to help others succeed.
Mikey greatly values the sense of community at SHS, which he notes that he first truly realized when singing the Schaumburg High School Alma Mater at the last band concert of his freshman year. He reflects, “It motivated me to make my four years count, and cherish every moment with the amazing people that surround you at any given time, whether you know it or not.” Mikey also notes that his diverse interests have helped keep him motivated throughout his time in high school. Upon graduation, Mikey will be attending Northwestern University to study economics. Given his significant accomplishments over the last four years, we look forward to following Mikey’s success in college and beyond.
