Day 160 - Proud Graduating Senior

Today's post is from senior Adrian Wear

There are many things that I can be proud of, and many reasons that go along with them. However, none can compare to the pride I have of being an MWHS student-athlete. Through our test results, sports, and extracurricular activities, I can be proud to say that I was a White Hawk.

One thing I can be proud of about our school is the test results that we receive. We consistently score in the top 10 in the state for our MCA’s, and our ACT averages are also above average. With this being said, going to MWHS has prepared me for all of these standardized tests with the academic rigor they provide. Because of this, my results reflect all of the hard work that I have put in, as I will be attending the college of my choice next year - the University of St. Thomas.

Another thing I can be very proud of is our athletic teams that I participated in. Our football team defeated Wright County Conference foe Waconia marking the first victory of the season, and marking the first WCC victory against someone other than Watertown-Mayer for quite some time. Also, our wrestling team did very well this past season, going 19-5 on the year, and placing 2nd in the conference as well as placing 2nd at team sections. We went on to send 8 individuals to the state tournament, a MWHS record, and placed two of them in the top 6 in the state. Way to go guys!

Finally, I can be proud of our awesome activities that we offer. Our DECA program sent countless individuals to state, then sent 23 individuals to internationals, with 14 of them advancing to the finals, resulting in 10 top 10 finishers! Also, we have a very well established Link Crew program that I have been a part of for the past two years, which was very enjoyable to be in. Congratulations to all other sports and activities for their success this past year!

In conclusion, our test scores place MWHS in the top 10 in the state, our athletic teams succeed on the field as well as off it, and our various activities represent MWHS across the world! This is why I’m proud to be a White Hawk!
