Andrew Gasparini is thrilled to be making his final lap as a senior at North Cobb.

As an aspiring educator, he associates great value with being an active member in the community. He keeps himself busy with his many roles here at North Cobb: President of the Spanish Club, Leadership of Model UN, Community Service Chair in NHS, and Chick-fil-A biscuit hookup.

Walking through the hallways of North Cobb during a class change, Andrew receives many smiles of gratitude from both his peers and teachers for all of the time he has dedicated to a community that he loves.  Andrew’s friends share that beneath all of the sarcasm and ‘Mean Thursdays’ he has a heart of gold that never fails to make the people around him smile and laugh harder than ever before.

As Captain of the North Cobb Cross Country Team, Andrew lives for the 5:00 A.M. wake-up calls each Saturday of the Fall Semester for meets. When the Magnet Program leaves him in need of a ‘distresser’, Gasparini’s go-to’s, including: his spearmint candle, going for a run to relieve the mind, or catching a movie with a friend. Andrew attributes credit for the witty, kind-hearted, and driven young man that he is today to: his parents, Roxy (Andrew’s cat), supportive friends, teachers, and the youth group at his church where he is a member of the choir.

Andrew is looking forward to seeing what his last semester of high school at NC holds in store for him, including all the skills he will gain being a photographer and reporter for The Chant.
