Although Mock Trial has no court-held authority, it has come to signify a lot to those who participate. Wesleyan’s Mock Trial team has worked hard this past season, earning a place in 2017’s District competition and winning Regionals. Mock Trial is a court trial that has no legal bearing. Students can participate on the team as a witness or a lawyer, both of which provide lasting life lessons even for high schoolers.
As February, the month of love approached, Wesleyan School Athletic Director, Marc Khedouri was working on an enormous act of love. Khedouri and friends donated $60,000 to all the Wesleyan high school students and faculty with only one instruction on what to do with the money:
Do something beautiful for God.
After an exciting game in Phoenix last year, the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Clemson Tigers went head to head again this year in the BCS National Championship game in Tampa, Florida.
Pokémon Go has swept the nation and Wesleyan; providing both entertainment and potential danger. Pokémon Go is an app that allows Pokémon from the world of the manga and anime to come to our world. The goal is to “catch ‘em all”.
1. What colleges are you applying to? Baylor, TCU, Furman and UGA.
2. What were you involved with in high school? Theater, XC, Peer Leadership and Footsie Foursquare Club.
3. Who was your first Wesleyan crush? Marti Duke, in second grade.
4. What is your most embarrassing moment? In 7th grade, I was home alone and after taking a shower, I remembered I left some clothes in my parent’s car. Thinking no one would see if I quickly slipped outside in the nude, I opened the door to find an elderly old woman looking for my father. Needless to say, I wasn’t quite what she was expecting. She slammed the door in my face and screamed about how “lost this generation is”.
5. What is one thing you wish you had done in high school? Studied for tests. Probably wouldn’t have gotten deferred from Georgia if I did.
6. What is the theme song to your life? “I’ve Got the World on a String” by Frank Sinatra.
7. If you could be any faculty member, who would you be? Why? Jonathan Koch. First, if you think he doesn’t teach here anymore, you simply aren’t looking hard enough. Second, never in my life have I seen a man with a better sock and tie game. Absolutely unparalleled.
8. If you were stranded on a desert island, what three things would you want to have with you? Some sunglasses, Margot Robbie, and a pair of Chubbies swim trunks.
9. What do you hope your life will be like in 10 years? There are three different places I could be. I will either be looking for different theater productions to be a part of in New York, be working for a sports broadcasting company in the city I went to college in and be the play by play announcer for that school’s football team, or have won the lottery and be living with my wife and two dogs in the largest house in Cumming, GA.
10. Assuming you had 24 hours to live, what would you do with your remaining hours? Find out who told Donald Trump that running for president was a good idea and hit him with a truck. Then I would do everything on the bucket list that myself and Andrew Sabonis-Chafee made.
