“Smile, it’s not that bad.”

President of the National Honor Society of the 2017-2018 school year, Charlie Randall, will be attending St. Bonaventure University for marketing. While attending St. Bonaventure, he plans on continuing playing the saxophone with the school’s Jazz Ensemble.

In the years following high school, Randall believes that life will be, “different, but not in a scary way; new experiences are always different.” As a future job, since he is pursuing a career in marketing, Randall would like to be in charge of marketing for a company or organization and would then go from there.

During his high school career, Randall has participated in Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD), National Honor Society (NHS), basketball, volleyball, cross country, band, Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), and was previously the Class of 2018’s Vice President his freshmen, sophomore, and junior year.

To the underclassmen, he says, “to just be yourself and don’t sweat the small stuff. Don’t let yourself get stressed out, be calm and go with it because high school isn’t that bad.”
