TT: “What clubs and activities were you involved in during your time at UHS?”

TT: “What were some of your favorite classes in high school?”

TT: “What was your favorite Cafeteria food?”

TT: “Funniest Memory in High School”
CD: It would probably have to be filming the “Poe Show” with Nate Edenfield and Connor Monahan in Honors English 11. It may be the greatest video ever made. I am 90% sure that Mrs. Ritenour has the only copy of it.
TT: “What major are you studying at Penn State, and why did you choose it?”
CD: I am studying IST or Information Sciences and Technology. I have always had a love for computers and technology as a whole. When I started at Penn State, IST really stuck out to me as the perfect major. IST brings technology and people together. It focuses on how we interact with technology and how we can use it as a solution to improve our lives.
TT: “What advice would you give to the current graduating class of UHS?”
CD: I would tell the current graduating class to enjoy the last few weeks of senior year. Enjoy each and every day you walk through the halls, because your lives are going to change after you walk across that stage at graduation. For those of you going to college, enjoy your summer off because come August, a new chapter of your lives will begin. You will have some great adventures, and meet friends that will last a lifetime. For those not going to college, I would tell you to always do your best in whatever you do. No matter where life takes you, keep moving forward to better yourself and those around you. Try your best and work hard, the rest will fall into place.
