What is the best part of attending WC?  Meeting new people, and getting a one-on-one education.
What are your post-WC plans?  Well, I plan on graduating!
What are your favorite things to do when you are not at school or studying?
  I love spending time with my family, attending church, riding horses, dancing, giging with my band, hunting, fishing and having a good time.
What is your dream job?  My dream job is what I am doing now, playing and making music for people to enjoy.
Who has been your greatest hero/mentor and why?  My greatest heroes have been my family because growing up in rural area we didn’t have much, but it never bothered us, and we know the meaning of life. Millions of dollars or the finest things in life can never give me as much happiness
as I had growing around and with my family. And we always put God first in my family.
What is your favorite book?  The Holy Bible
How important was affordability when choosing to attend WC?  It was very important, because money doesn’t grow on trees.
