Messen, who also attended T.H. Rogers, enjoys to run, cook and read Russian literature in his spare time. He is set to attend Dartmouth University this fall and hopes to study either French, linguistics, or biochemistry. Messen has been recognized for his achievements in Greek, French and debate competitions throughout his years at Carnegie. Additionally, Messen placed first out of all runners in his age group at this year’s Houston Marathon.

We hope these students shine in their future endeavors and we wish them all the best in college!
