1 What advice do you have for next year’s freshmen?

Focus on school, but don’t ignore all of the great clubs, people and activities around you. You’ll, hopefully, only have four years of high school, so enjoy them.

2 Who was your favorite teacher and why?

Ms. Johnston because she actually challenged me and pushed me to become a better writer.

3 When you were not in school or studying, what did you most enjoy doing?

Reading and playing games.

4 What college do you plan to attend and why?

Missouri State University, mostly because they offered me the best scholarships along with a decent computer science department.

5 What do you see yourself doing 10 years from now?

Retiring. Just kidding. Hopefully, I will be self-employed in my own software company, getting ready for a 10-year reunion.
