For this issue of The Squire, we chose EHS senior Julia Haight as our student spotlight. Many people who know Julia may look at her as a good friend. Others may know her as one of the cross-country runners, or the sister of former EHS graduate Naomi Haight. However, there may be some people who don’t know who Julia is, and might wonder what she’s all about.
Julia participates in many school activities, including National Honor Society, Academic Bowl, and Battle of the Books. She is also part of the EHS cross-country team, saying, “Despite all the setbacks from Covid, I am glad we are able to still have a fun season.” Outside of school, Julia is a member at a cross fit gym in Warren and is also involved in a few activities at her church. Julia also loves painting, spending time with her family, baking, and cooking.
To get a little more insight on Julia, The Squire asked her a few questions:
The Squire: What are your plans after school?
Julia Haight: After high school, I plan on going to college and getting a degree in communications, with a minor in business.
TS: Where do you see yourself in ten years?
JH: In ten years, I’d like to see myself working in a big city somewhere with a good job.
TS: Considering the classes that you’ve taken; which classes have prepared you for college?
JH: I think the classes that prepared me were my honors English courses, since they allowed me to build my writing skills
TS: When you start reflecting on high school, what memory sticks out the most?
JH: One specific memory from high school that I have is singing the song “I Want It That Way” (a song by the Backstreet Boys) during cross country practice.
TS: What is the best advice a teacher has given you?
JH: The best advice a teacher has given me is to try my best. As cheesy as it is, when you put more effort into something, you more often than not will get good results
TS: What is the best advice you can give to the underclassmen?
JH: My advice for underclassmen would be to do your homework, don’t be afraid to ask for help, and make a separate email for college related business.
Julia is constantly giving people advice and helping others around Eisenhower. So next time you bump into her in the hallway of EHS, make sure to say hi, and send her some congratulations for being The Squire’s Student Spotlight.
