Question-What is one thing you wished you learned in school but didn’t?
Answer- How to do taxes.
This is a common answer because in many of our core classes, we aren’t taught how to do taxes. Taxes are an important part of life and not learning how to do them can be detrimental. So as a message to our school, we should be taught how to do them so we’re prepared after highschool.

Answer- Welding with Mr. Hamner. Built a lot of meat carts.
