Hi! My name is Max Willmuth and I’m excited to be a part of the Global Scholars Program at EHS. I’m focusing on the STEM pathway and think I may be interested in a computer science career. I went to the Normandale French Immersion Elementary and have enjoyed practicing my French overseas and at immersion camps. I have a grandparent on each side that was born and raised in a foreign country so I am particularly interested in international culture, experiences and travel.
