Waligura Over the Years

Cooper Waligura is a senior here at Uniontown Area High School, and has been a good student over the years. He is in the band, and drama club. His favorite subject is history. His hobbies outside of school are photographing trains, riding his bike, singing, and bowling. He said “Those four things have shaped and helped me become the person I am today.”

He wants to spend this summer after graduation watching a lot of trains, biking crazy distances, and just enjoying his last summer of “being a kid.” Cooper is looking forward to driving a locomotive for a short line railroad. His greatest accomplishment during his high school years is getting this year’s lead role in the musical as Seymour. He said “Literally a dream come true. I cannot wait!”

Waligura said that the things that changed about him since his freshmen year are his maturity level and how he handles problems. His favorite thing about his high school years is musical. Cooper said “Musical has been a huge outlet for me over the past 4 years, and I don’t know who I would be without it.” Some advice Cooper gives to the underclassmen is to “push through all of it, but don’t rush it! It’ll be over before you know it…then you’ll be wishing for those times back.”
