This week’s senior of the week goes out to a student who perfectly represents the high school students everyone wants to become. He is an honors and AP student, varsity athlete and captain of the football team, past junior marshal, and works part time. Elijah Richardson will be attending University of Charleston where will will be playing football and studying computer science and information technology.
Elijah’s biggest motivation is his family members and he wants to be a role model for them in his life. His biggest accomplishment was being accepted to play football in college with a scholarship and having his own signing day. The best memory of high school for him was winning the football game against the state champion, Harding University High School, during his senior year. He lives by the quote “Do what you NEED to do, so you can do what you WANT to do.” His advice to the students at the G is “Do the hard work first then do whatever you want to do after.”
