What is your most embarrassing moment at Union High School? Trying to talk in front of the school at the Homecoming pep assembly but no one could hear me because I was sick and didn’t have a voice.
What is your favorite memory from high school? Cheering on the football and wrestling boys and performing dance team routines in front of the fans.
My biggest pet peeve is: Being called “Morgan W.”
Who are the most influential people in your life? My parents, brother, Grandma Hook, my uncles Jim & Scott, my aunts Tammy, Laurie & Lisa, and my many cousins. I am blessed with a large, loving family.
What will you miss most about high school? Seeing all my friends on a daily basis along with Homecoming and Prom.
Where do you see yourself in 20 years? Employed as a TESOL teacher, married to the love of my life, with little mini-me’s running around our house in the country.
What is the best thing about being a senior? Having an early release.
What are your post-high school plans? Attend the University of Northern Iowa to double major in Teaching English to Speakers of other Languages (TESOL) & Spanish.
Your best advice to underclassmen? Take college classes as a junior & senior. It isn’t easy, but it’s worth it.
