The Octagon

Garrett Shonkwiler
Garrett Shonkwiler is a freshman and new attendee at Country Day. He plays soccer for the school, but flag football with the CSD (Community Service District). He hopes, however, to join any league that Country Day may create in the future. He also takes piano lessons, is a Boy Scout hoping to ascend to the rank of Eagle and is an amateur writer, (having not worked for The Octagon before) hoping to publish a book.
