“The decision that I made to attend Farragut in 2009 was not easy,” said Farragut alumnus Bolun “Jerry” Liu ‘12. “I was too young to recognize that I was about to begin a journey beyond imagination. An ordinary teenager is not expected to make his bed, iron his clothes, clean his own room, and do homework without supervision or parent’s help. However, by my senior year, I had transformed completely into a responsible young adult with goals for my future. I owe many of my leadership skills to Admiral Farragut Academy.”
