Each day, we want to feature one or two seniors on our social media platforms. Seniors were asked to send a picture and answer a couple of questions about themselves. We will select these randomly from what has been submitted to us!

Today we recognize seniors Megan Baldwin and Baxter Finley.

Megan:

What are your plans after graduating from high school? 

I plan on attending LCC to get my Associates in Chemistry. I then want to attend either Pittsburg State University or Wichita State University to get my Bachelors in Science. I want to try to get into medical school to pursue a career in the medical field. 

What is your number one goal in life?

My number one goal in life is to be as successful as possible in whatever it is that I decide to do in the future. I know that I have the strength, determination, and ambition to be successful in any direction I choose in life. 

What is your favorite memory of high school? 

I have so many favorite memories, but one of my absolute favorites is from guitar class. Mr. Pommier would join our class occasionally and he truly helped me become a better guitarist. He had so many useful pointers that I used to better my skills. Another favorite memory is when I played the piano accompaniment for "Christmas Canon" at the Christmas concert. I absolutely loved getting to play that grand piano while the orchestra and choir were performing. All of the things I was able to do musically really brought me some happy and exciting moments throughout high school. 

Baxter:

What are your plans after graduating from high school?

I plan to go on a two year mission service

Who has been the greatest influence in your life? Why?

My mom, because she always pushed me to be my best in everything I do

Reminder: If you didn't get your packet you requested or were unable to pick up a device that you have a need for, Mr. Barcus and Mr. Swanson will be available from 5-6 tonight. It will be short staffed so bring only your high school student and your patience. Go Vikes!

It wasn't perfect, but we did get a lot of packets out to people that requested them. There is still some confusion, and that's totally okay. The packets are for those of you that aren't doing your learning online. We had some late requests and are working on that.

Mr. Barcus and Mr. Swanson will be here from 5:00-6:00 PM on TUESDAY evening to hopefully catch some more of you. Mrs. Hopper left some bags and we will also have laptops for those of you that indicated you need a device.

It was really good to see staff and students today, even if it was behind a mask or in a car. Let us know what we can do to help!

Today we recognize seniors Alexis Perez and Will Daniels.

Alexis:

What are your plans after graduating from high school?

I plan to pursue a major in Graphic Communications with an emphasis in Graphic Design at Pittsburg State University.

What was your greatest accomplishment during high school?

My greatest accomplishment during high school would definitely have to be my time management skills. I was able to finish in the top 10% in my class all while juggling college dual credit classes, working 25-30 hours a week, and being involved in various clubs/school activities.

What is your number one goal in life?

My number one goal in life is to set an example of how hard work pays off. I see myself to be a leader in whatever role I am assigned to. I want others to always give their 110% no matter how small or big the task may be.

Will:

What are your plans after graduating from high school?

If the plan goes accordingly, I’ll begin a career in music and attend college as I am ready. Meanwhile, I will continue to work on my family farm as we expand and thrive like never before.

What was your greatest accomplishment during high school?

During high school, I discovered a part of me that has changed the course of my life: my voice. My greatest accomplishment was finding my purpose in the beauty of music.

What is your number one goal in life?

I don’t know where life will take me or if my aspirations will change, but as of now, I strive to be an inspiration. Especially in times like these, people need someone or something to help them see the light at the end of the tunnel. That is what I want to be here for. My number one goal in life is to share with people the hope for tomorrow. The hope that God has given me.
