When you look at junior Will Ferree’s rigorous class schedule and lengthy list of co-curricular activities, it’s easy to see why his biggest challenge is getting enough sleep. Will is dedicated to academic achievement, athletic accomplishment, and personal development. “At Scecina I have had the opportunity to excel in sports and academics, while growing in faith,” he says.
Will is grateful for the faith formation he has received at St. Michael Catholic School in Greenfield and Scecina Memorial High School. He recently completed the Sacrament of Confirmation. He also appreciates the excellent academic instruction he has received, and he would crusade for universal quality education.
Although he doesn’t have much free time, Will enjoys pursuing his hobbies. He is passionate about cars. He also enjoys reading, his favorite book is “You Win in the Locker Room First” by Jon Gordon.
Will is the son of Shirley (Ritzi) Ferree ‘85, a bookkeeper, and John Ferree, a lawyer. His sister Carly is a freshman at Scecina.
