Son of Demetrius and Cynthia Carrothers of 3250 Bay Rd., Carrollton, Noah is a member of the cross country, wrestling and track teams, Academic Challenge and National Honor Society at CHS. He also is a member of the Holy Spirit youth group and Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church youth group.
Noah, who has a brother, Alex, a sophomore at CHS, enjoys chess, meditating, Clash Royale and reading articles on advancements in science and card games.
Although he is undecided what college he plans to attend, Noah said his career plans include becoming a mechanical or chemical engineer.
When asked what teacher, coach, family member or special friend has influenced him and why, Noah responded: All; I think about what they all say, do and mean; I’ve learned the virtues through their triumphs and mistakes.
In offering advice for success in life, Noah said: People get too hung up (or hung up at all) about what someone else did to them – people get in a hurry too much and get frustrated quickly – people have a habit of complaining, but not taking action.
I say; Always forgive, because the Lord has forgiven you; Always be patient because that lets you see and analyze; Have courage, take action, the most important to start with is patience because for me it leads to the others.
She is a member of the CHS (Caring, Helping, Sharing) Club, PLAY (People Leading America’s Youth/Anti Drugs) and National Honor Society at CHS. Diana has an older sister, Brenda and a brother, Juan, both college graduates, and a younger brother, Paul, a second grade student.

Diana plans to possibly attend Kent State University and is interested in going into the biology field, but nothing specific as of now.
When asked what teacher, coach, family member or special friend has influenced her and why, Diana said: My whole family has been a great support and my teachers, including Mrs. Mach, Mrs. Pozderac and Mrs. Incerpi have also been a great influence on me. My friends also have helped me through so much; I can’ imagine life without these people.
In offering advice for success in life, Diana said: Just work hard and don’t let the little things get you down. It can seem tough sometimes, but there’s always someone who has your back.
