A: I joined the student council through my freshman year. It’s focusing on the welfare of our school and Mr. DeMoss is a pretty nice adviser. He’s really advocating for some of the issues where the school is having students represent so I definitely recommend joining our club to underclassmen.”

Q: What is one lesson high school has taught you?

A: I would say being happy doesn’t mean everything is perfect. As a high school student, I have to keep the academic grades high, which makes me sometimes too stressed and anxious. So I just want to say don’t be too professional or perfect.”
