Plans are set and ready for senior Joshua to attend college at Seward County to study diesel mechanics.
He would not change anything in the past four years of high school, nor does he have a plan to make this year memorable.
But he does have advice for underclassmen. “Work hard.”
If given the choice, Joshua would have never taken any English classes. But he would gladly take woods over and over again because it is his favorite class. There was no other class he wished he had taken.
