What's one memory of high school you'll take with you?
My senior prom was a very fun experience. I would say that everyone should go to their senior prom.
Who was a favorite teacher or staff member & why?
Mr. Tesmer and Mr. Wolf. They are always there for me when I need help. I can sit, chill, and talk about life all day with the both of them.
What are your plans for after graduation?
I am going to UTI in Orlando to study diesel mechanics.
How did your high school experience prepare you for your future?
High school really piquedmy interest in mechanics and helped me narrow down what kind of mechanics I'm into.
What was the most difficult challenge you faced in high school?
Focusing in normal sit down classes. I am a very hands on learner so sitting in a classroom reading out of a book is really difficult.
How do you think you've changed as a person during the last four years?
I changed in how I view my education. Back in 9th grade, I didn't care in the slightest. I saw no light at the end of the school tunnel and had no direction. Once I discovered shop classes and my love for mechanics my whole attitude changed.
What makes you most excited when you think about your future?
The freedom to do what I want and go where I want.
What advice would you give to younger students to make the most of their high school experiences?
Experiment and try out all the pathway options. You could be pleasantly surprised and like a pathway you never thought of going into.
