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

A: Hi, I’m Annaclare Regan. I’m a freshman at Huron High School. I play field hockey and I’m in Huron players.


Q: How would you describe your transition from middle to high school?

A: It was pretty smooth. I think high school is just more work for sports and school and everything. But I’ve stayed pretty on top of it all.


Q: What class is the most interesting so far and why?

A: Engineering because you have creative freedom to do what you want and you do projects. It’s a chill class that still has expectations for you, and I like that.


Q: What are 3 words to describe your first months of high school and why?

A: Commitment, challenging, and connection. Commitment, because you have to commit to your sports, and I commit to huron players. You have to put in effort to be a good member of these things. Challenging, because it’s a lot of work, it’s harder. But it’s a fun challenge. For connection I think I’ve made a lot more friends and met a lot more people. I’m really happy that I met them. 


Q: How has high school surprised you so far? Were there any skills you had to learn to get work done or fit school into your schedule?

A: I don’t think high school has surprised me that much. I think I was kind of expecting a lot of work to happen and a lot of work needs to happen. I’ve had to work around my kind of awkward schedule. I’ve also had to learn to fit everything into my schedule. But it’s still fun. I still like high school.


Q: How do you want to remember your high school experience four years later? What are you doing now or how do you plan to make that happen? 

A: I want to have a good high school experience, I want to get good grades. I want to commit to things and make them happen. I’m trying to make sure that I get my homework done on time and that I’m studying for my finals while also keeping a social life and being parts of clubs.
