John’s Life at Ascension:

If you were to ask anyone at Ascension about John, they would tell you that he is a pretty whimsical guy. John is known for his quick wit and humor and brings fun to any and every situation. Senior Caroline Frentz said “John is hilarious and kinda annoying, but at the end of the day a pretty great friend.” But I mean hey, we all have our moments, so Caroline ought to cut him a little slack.  You can catch John starring as Louie in Ascension’s fall play Lost in Yonkers, where he plays the role of a strong and loud but respectable mob henchman. This will be one of John’s last performances at Ascension, but I am willing to bet that it certainly will not be one of the least.
