Get to know a little about Central Valley Academy students Johnna Bernard and Juliana Joyce.

Hi! I am Johnna Bernard, a senior at CVA.

Where are you involved outside of school and what do you like best about it?

I’m involved in Drama Club, Chamber Choir, and the Mohawk Valley Choral Society. I love performing all kinds of music and getting as much experience as I possibly can.

What have you learned that you think is important?

From being Class of 2014 Secretary, yearbook Club Secretary, and Drama Club President, I’ve learned that good leadership skills are essential when trying to accomplish a task and create a good product.

If you could change one thing about school, what would that be?

I would make the arrival time later!

What do you plan to do after high school?

I will be attending The Crane School of Music at Potsdam State to study Music Education.

If you could do anything on a weekend, what would you do?

Go to Denny’s, go shopping, and sleep a lot. Just like I do every weekend.

 If we were to listen to your iPod or MP3, what would be playing?

Balance and Composure, Brand New, or Taking Back Sunday.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?

I’d like to go to Italy because my grandfather was a full-blooded Italian that came to America at a young age, and I’ve always been interested in the country’s history.

What is one thing that you would like to share that people might not know about you? 

My right leg is one-inch shorter than my left leg.

Hi! I am Juliana Joyce, a junior at CVA.

What is your favorite thing about school?

I love seeing my friends everyday and participating in the musicals.

What activities or what have you learned that you think is important?

I believe a vast knowledge of subjects and writing skills are greatly important for a student’s success.

What do you plan to do after high school?

I plan to attend a four-year school to major in a music field, potentially Performance or Music Therapy.

Where are you involved outside of school and what do you like best about it?

I am involved in Stage Two Theatre Company over the summer. I enjoy the wide variety of musicals I have been able to participate in from Anything Goes to The King and I.

 If we were to listen to your iPod or MP3, what would be playing?

My iPod has a wide variety of music on it – currently it would play Phantom of the Opera.

What is your favorite television show/movie/actor?

My favorite actress is Jennifer Lawrence and my favorite movie is Les Miserables.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?

I would love to travel to Italy because it is so rich in history and half of my family is from there.
