Tucked away in the Florida Panhandle, you’ll find a small city named Quincy, with a population of 7,000. A 12-minute drive to the Georgia border and an hour from the Alabama border, Quincy is home to a Walmart Supercenter and a handful of so-called Coca-Cola millionaires (folks who bought stock in the company early and struck it rich). Part of Gadsden County, Quincy feels worlds away from the typical idea of Florida.
Navid Massarat ’19 is proposing a dog beach in La Jolla Shores. It all started with taking his dog for a walk, a typical chore for dog owners. Navid’s dog, Lexus, a very energetic Vizsla, loves to swim and play on the beach, which serves as an effective energy release. The problem is that there aren’t any dog beaches in La Jolla. With some help from his advisor, Upper School history teacher Jonathan Shulman, Navid is determined to make a change.
