One HR track and field performer is Ben Morgan, senior. His best event is the long jump but he also runs a 400 Meter Relay. He was number one in long jump at state last year. His best jump is 23’8.5″ which is three feet off from an average jump in the Olympics. He has received scholarships from many schools and is excited for running for his college team.

John Padjen said, ” It’s always sad to see the students who have been with you for four years leave for college.” Even though Mr. Padjen is upset, he is ready to start with a clean slate with the upcoming freshmen.

The last year for the seniors is half way done, and they will start their new chapter along with every senior in HR. Padjen said, “I believe that every one of these students graduating will not have any problems in college, they will do great because they earned their right to be where they are.”
