Q and A with a Senior

Katie Lawrence

BIC’s seniors are graduating in almost a week.  Finals exams are underway, graduates are saying goodbye, and upcoming Juniors are bursting with idea of becoming seniors themselves. After the grades are submitted and the caps have been thrown, there’s only one thing these young men and women, blossoming into the world to come, have left to do here at Buffalo Island – think of the memories. I spoke with Salutatorian Kaleb Dublin as he reflected on his career as a Mustang prior to  graduation.

Q:How does it feel to be BIC’s Salutatorian?

A:“I feel honored to be the 2018-2019 class salutatorian. Our class is filled with smart students. It came down to wire, to select our salutatorian and valedictorian. It was a very big honor to be selected.”


Q:Were you surprised to hear that you were the salutatorian?

A: “I was pretty surprised. I knew I was in the running, but when I was told it was going to come down to grade point average, I didn’t think, I was going to be selected.”


Q:Are you nervous to give your speech?

A:Yes, I am not comfortable speaking in front of an audience. Even the thought of it makes me nervous.”


Q: What’s been one of the most challenging things about senior year?

A: “The most challenging thing I have done all year is keeping an A in AP Literature. It was the hardest class I have taken by far, and required much more work at home than I was used to.”


Q:What will you miss most?

A: “I will most definitely miss sports the most. Sports have been a huge part of my life for so long. I don’t know what I am going to do without them. I’ve enjoyed every last minute of basketball and baseball the past four years. It’s going to be a different life without them.”
