Student of the Week: Jake Gomrick
What is your Coronado story?
This is my second time living in Coronado. My Dad flew helicopters in the navy and I moved here originally when I was 18 months old. When I was four my family moved to Italy for three years, and we moved back to our house in Coronado in August of 2001 when I was seven.
What is your favorite part about Coronado High School?
My favorite part of Coronado High School is the social diversity. Thanks to the stellar programs the school has to offer, in any one classroom you could see someone on track to go to an arts conservatory, someone recruited to a college for water polo, and a national merit scholar.
What are some of your current passions?
My current passions include playing music with my friends Aidan and Dakota and songwriting.
Where do you want to go to school next year?
I am looking at around ten schools next year for either a Music Industry degree or Musical Theatre degree. Though I do not have a clear number one school at the moment, one of the most interesting programs I have seen to date is the music industry program at Loyola University in New Orleans.
Any favorite spots around Coronado?
My favorite spot in Coronado is the spot on the beach near the Hotel Del where those random cement blocks are sticking out of the ground.
What is your favorite memory so far from Coronado High School?
My fondest memory of Coronado High is walking onstage in “All Shook Up” my freshman year in the first principle role I have ever had in a show.
Do you have any random fun facts about yourself that you would like to share?
I don’t know how to efficiently study for tests, so I usually don’t.
