What encouraged you to run for prom court?

I believe what encouraged me to run was that the Performing Arts Department doesn't receive enough recognition for all the hard work we do. We are acknowledged, but not as much as we could. Winning this crown is bigger than me. I was involved in so much in my four years here and I feel like it's part of what made me who I am today. This is true with a lot of people. If I win, I will dedicate the crown to the Performing Arts Center.

What would you like people to know about you?

I would just like to say thank you all for supporting me and respecting what I do. I know I can be annoying and loud, but I'm just really friendly and energetic. Also, all the training and work that I've received and put in has paid off. Next year I will be going to Ball State University. In 2023, I plan to graduate with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a Musical Theatre concentration. I would also like to thank everyone for working with me and putting up with me, you guys also helped me to be the young man I am today.

What would people like to know about you?

I am extremely invested and passionate about emergency medicine and the medical field in general. I very much look forward to becoming a trauma surgeon or emergency psychiatrist. I plan to attend St. John's University in Queens, N.Y. in the Fall of 2019 and hopefully fence for them. My favorite animal is a giraffe and my favorite color is olive green.
