Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself and what hobbies/sports you do.

A: “Hi my name is Jackson Keefer and I like to play sports at Huron, particularly Basketball, Football, and Track.  I also like to read and watch TV shows.”


Q: After spending a year with classmates virtually, what’s it been like to finally see people in person? 

A: “It’s been fun to actually see my friends and just see people,  basically be in a school environment because I like school. Sometimes it has it’s also downsides. I got to see friends a lot through sports during the virtual year, so it wasn’t too bad for me but I still, like in person school more.” 


Q: Who helped you the most in getting through last year and why? 

A: “Probably my parents, my friends, and my coaches because that’s who I got to see after virtual school every day. I would have practice and I would wait until I could go because I got to see my friends and just have fun.”


Q: Describe something about coming back to school in person that has surprised you?

A: “What has surprised me is, I haven’t had to much work, during virtual school. I didn’t have that much work, so I thought I would have a lot more work since we had every class every day. I thought I would have a lot of work but I haven’t which is good.” 


Q: Which of your classes are you most excited for and why?

A: “I’m probably most excited for my macroeconomics class because I  like to learn about that. It’s fun learning about that, I have a good teacher and I would like to explore more about that topic.”


Q: What are your thoughts about personal project? When do you think you’ll get started on your work? Do you have any idea what you’re doing for your project?

A: “  I’m excited to get started. I know it’s going to not hard but it’s gonna take a lot of thinking and a lot of researching to really do it but,I’ll be able to do it. I’ll probably start the work for it by actually doing. I will start soon. I’m going to  be training for sports. I’m trying to get more explosive, quicker, stronger, and jumping higher and improving those things.”


Q: If you could change one thing from your freshman self, what would it be? 

A: “I would have just tried to learn really learn more, because I didn’t learn as much as I would have in person, because it’s just hard to learn online. So I would try to do more to learn.”

I would also try to learn something else outside of school such as learn a new language, instead of just being on my phone, or watching TV.”
