What are your future plans? What are you majoring in, if you are planning on attending a post-secondary school?

I’m going to college but I’m undecided between IU and Wabash. I’m going to be majoring in mathematics, most likely pure rather than applied.

What has made this year your best year?

One conference back to back with the soccer team.

If you could give any advice to the underclassmen, what would you say?

Get involved in lots of things, being a part of clubs and activities really pays off as a senior. Teachers always tell you to get involved but they never say why, I can say why it is worth the time commitment. If you are involved in lots of clubs and community service it looks amazing on a college application and it gives you much more consideration for merit scholarships from colleges. If you don’t know what a merit scholarship is, it’s basically where you get tons of money from just what you have accomplished and done in high school, no interview, no extra application, and no extra time (except for what you sacrificed in high school). Colleges will literally just be like “not only did you get into our college but we’re also going to give you $30,000 that is renewable for four years. ” It’s great and worth it.

Who has been your biggest influence at the school and why? (teacher, administrator, staff member)

Probably Mr. Passwater because he made me want to study math in college. His lessons really intrigued me and made me interested in math.

What class has been the most beneficial for you? Why?

Personal Finance because you learn lots of applicable things in that class.

What is something interesting about you that most people wouldn’t know about you?

I am a complete music junkie. Music is my thing and I even bought a $150 pair of studio headphones so that I can listen to music at a high quality. I usually just lay in my bed and listen to music and contemplate all the different aspects of it. I’ve probably listened to 100+ albums in full of music.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Making bank and driving a BMW flexing on all my former classmates.

Are you planning on playing sports in college? If so what sport and where?
