COVINGTON — Eastside High seniors Faith Bartello and Jasper Narvil are preparing to say goodbye to their high school years, each being top achievers in their graduating class.

Bartello, the EHS 2014 salutatorian, is a native of Covington who went to East Newton Elementary and Indian Creek Middle prior to arriving at Eastside. She plans to attend the University of Georgia in the fall, majoring in biology. She intents to eventually become a pediatrician.

“I like kids, and I’ve always thought it was interesting,” she said.

Along with an interest in the medical field, Bartello is a part of the school’s color guard, and enjoys doing activities with her church. She is also a member of the National Honor Society and the Junior Service Guild.

After making the move from Henry County, Valedictorian Narvil attended EHS throughout all four years of high school. He will be going to Georgia Tech in the approaching fall semester and is considering a major in economics and international affairs.

“It’s a semi-double major, I’m not really sure how it’s going to work out,” Narvil said. “I’ll probably end up changing it. It’ll probably stay in the liberal arts field, though.”

In his free time, Narvil enjoys browsing Netflix for movies and TV shows. Additionally, he has a passion for travel and an interest in politics.

Being the valedictorian and salutatorian, these two students will be graduating with excellent academic scores, each with a 4.0 grade point average. Both Bartello and Narvil selected Eric Adams, an Eastside Latin instructor, as their favorite teacher.
