Jayce Martin

Freshman

Although he may appear to be a reserved person at first, Jayce Martin, a freshman at Ephrata Mennonite School, has a boisterous personality and a go-getter attitude that are rapidly revealed. An Ephrata Mennonite student since kindergarten, Jayce enjoys the challenge of school and also the social interactions he has with his friends.

One of Jayce’s favorites classes is gym class because he can “play sports, be competitive, and have fun.” With a few more years to go before graduation, Jayce doesn’t know exactly what his post-high school plans include, but he has thought about going to college. At this point in life, school constitutes much of Jayce’s time, but when he has a chance, he enjoys playing sports, specifically basketball and football, and reading, particularly thriller books.

When asked what he would change about the world, Jayce noted several things, but one of the main changes he would implement would be making education readily available to all. With the ability to read and write, people are able to live a life that many people take for granted. Two people that Jayce admires are his older twin brothers who display perseverance in life in different ways, one in college and the other as a truck driver.
