Senate President Interview with Morgan Whaley

by Katrina Frei-Herrmann and Brett Parsons

 

  1. What is one thing about yourself you want the upper school to know?
    • There are many things that I love but I especially love English soccer. My favorite team Tottenham Hotspur, so if you see me wearing anything with Spurs on it, I am talking about the soccer team NOT SAN ANTONIO. P.S. if anyone else is a fan, hit me up. P.S.S I love James Franco
  2. What are some things you would like to accomplish by the end of the year?
    • Get a varsity letter
    • Participate in the dance concert or some other type of art performance
    • Make the last year memorable.
    • Make HB a place where people can feel happy with their own accomplishments inside of having others recognition. Whether you planted a tree, got published in a paper for SREP, or got your first A on a test, be proud of your accomplishments.
  1. What were your first thought when you won?
    • My first thought when I won wasn’t a thought, but was a feeling of pure joy. I was in the EC room with Ms Shah and Godshall, while a child’s toy went off, and that is when I was told. I was smiling all day, but I couldn’t explain to anyone why I was smiling. It was such a great moment.
  2. Why did you go for this position?
    • I have really admired all of the Senate presidents before me such as Vanessa Logan and Alyzah. I wanted to give back to a place that gave me so much.
  3. What were you thoughts when you made your speech?
    • I was kind of nervous, kind of excited. Talking in front of people is an adrenaline rush for me. As I was giving it, I felt like everything I said was genuine and from the heart. I was also shaking a little bit because of public speaking and due to my height, I had to stand on my toes. Maybe for morning meeting next year I’ll get a stool.
  4. In your speech, you mentioned the school spirit was low, how are you hoping to address this issue?
    • I want to make it a goal or a competition to try to go to at least one home game per season. I also want real pep rallies before rival games to get hb pumped.
  5. When did you come to hb? and where did you come from?
    • I came to hb my freshman year from Twinsburg. I really can’t imagine going to high school anywhere else though because it is perfect.
  6. If you could live as one teacher for the day, who would it be and why?
    • I would be Mr. Hatcher because I feel like we are similar to an extent. He is a relaxed person and his classes are cool. I also would want to play with his children for a day. And an even bigger bonus is that I can call Scott Parsons my best friend.
  7. Outside of hb, what other activities do you like to do?
    • I usually play soccer year round, but besides that, most of everything I do is through hb. I do SREP, volunteer, and play sports. I also like to knit in my free time to relax.
  8. What are you most excited about in this upcoming year?
    • I’m going to be a senior and get all the benefits of being a senior like running carnival and senior privileges. I am also excited to make Mr. Christs last year special and memorable. I am excited to meet all of the new kids and see the others get older and wiser. I am also excited to get input from students to see what they want.
