“My favorite part about school is my friends. I love seeing my friends, and that’s what makes lunch my favorite part of the day,” said Walker. 

Grades are very important to Walker. He believes they set one up for success in life and are important to stay on top of. 

“I want to get good grades to get into a good college, so that good colleges can fund my career and I can get my good life,” said Walker. 

Good grades come from learning, and Walker shared some advice for students who are having difficulties. It is important to make sure to understand the material and not getting stuck. Getting stuck, lost or behind in school can leave a big gap in learning.

“If you are struggling in school, ask for help from the teachers or others. Don’t care what people think and ask the questions like it’s just one on one,” said Walker. 

Another way to succeed in school is completing all the homework. Homework is important whether it’s fun or not. 

“Doing your homework actually helps you a lot. Homework is an extension of learning,” Walker said.  

Another outstanding student like Walker is Johnny Culpepper. Culpepper is a freshman and enjoys running cross country for Eagle. He is also excelling in school and a great student. 

Joining a sport can help a student in so many ways. They can excel not only physically, but also mentally. It gives many lessons and

allows one to overcome obstacles. 

“Cross country teaches me to endure through hard things and it bleeds into school as well,” Culpepper said. 

A positive mindset is key. Focusing on getting better everyday it will help in many areas of life. A positive mindset is super important and leads to success. 

“I strive to improve everyday not just in cross country but in school,” Culpepper said. 

Productivity and time management play a huge role in academics. Use class time wisely and get work done or success might be a lot harder to achieve. 

“Be productive in class and use up all the work time you can in order to limit homework and have more free time,” said Culpepper. 

Eagle High has many outstanding students. They set great examples and have shown throughout their time in high school.
