Jake Robinson reflects on his high school legacy
In his final year at WHS Jake Robinson (12) is making his mark on not only the students at WHS, but the culture of WHS as well.
During Robinson’s junior year, he was given the opportunity to help out with the mentally handicapped students during the final period of the school day. Robinson would do it all, from playing with the students in the classroom, to heading down to the Gault to play basketball.
“They would always come running into the classroom just happy to be there and happy to see you. I think the most valuable thing I gained from helping with their class was I made a new group of friends,” Robinson said.
Jake also took part in WSTR TV, a video announcement production team responsible for making weekly videos, informing the school on upcoming events and even entertaining the school body with a comedy skit involving teachers and students.
“I saw the first episode my freshman year I knew that was what I wanted to do. We are given a lot of freedom to be creative and put our passions to work. Mr. Greene is a great teacher and has passed on a lot of valuable lessons to us,” Jake said.
With film being one of Jake’s passions, he plans to attend Ohio University next year as a film major and, possibly, a minor in the technology field.
Jake Robinson is making the most of his remaining days at WHS, leaving his legacy in the hearts of not only the faculty, but also the entire student body.
