Tristan is on his way to becoming an Eagle Scout and he lives his life by the scout law—to be "trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent." Tristan put these values into practice as a member of the cross country and track teams, as well as through Model United Nations. Valuable moments of Tristan's time at WA have included being a delegate at the American Legion Boys State program, traveling to Montréal and Washington D.C. for Model UN conferences, acting in the school production of Our Town, and a trip to Italy with other Italian-language-learning students.
His dedication earned him high achievement in macroeconomics and membership in the science, math, scholar-athlete, and Italian honor societies, as well as The Academy's National Honor Society where he served as co-president.
Tristan attends West Point, the US Military Academy, pursuing a degree in engineering. Tristan shared that whatever he does, he wants "to be in a position where I can have a significant impact on the community."
