Senior Spotlight - Madison Sketo
1. What are your plans after high school (college, work force, future profession)?
I am thinking about either going to Highland for two years and then transferring to NIU or just heading straight to NIU.
2. What was the biggest change for you between your freshman and senior year?
The biggest change would definitely be the people I hang around and also me. I grew immensely from freshman year to now. Walking into freshman year I was a shy, acne faced, black haired girl (sorry dad). Now I am very outspoken, my acne is better, and I'm back to my beautiful long blond hair and I'm ready to take on whatever the world throws at me.
3. Which class challenged you the most and why?
I am all for learning new things and when most students answer this question they would probably mention one of Mr. Hanley's classes, but honestly I think it would be Advanced Art. I have grown so much with my painting thanks to Mrs. Russell-Brown. That class has made me think for myself and being able to create something that nobody else has brings me so much joy.
4. What person do you look up to the most and why?
Mrs. Russell-Brown is such a unique type of person and I aspire to have my life like hers. I want to be able to travel the world, have a small little family, keep learning, and keep creating art. I hope one day I can come back and tell her all the places I've been and still want to go.
5. What will you miss most about Forreston High School?
What I'm going to miss about Forreston the most is the sense of community. When I think about Forreston, yes, I think about classes and lunch, but what I think about most is what happens outside of the classroom. I'm going to miss walking out to the football field in my dance uniform with my poms and a big blanket. I'm going to miss getting ready in Ms. Kasten's room before games and laughing on the sideline of the basketball court after someone just messed up a band routine. I'm going to miss track with my two track buddies ab-dog and Engbert. Finally, I'm going to miss cheering at baseball games for my best friend.
6. What advice would you give incoming freshmen?
There is only one way to succeed in anything...... and that is to Give It Everything.
