“I walk slowly but I never walk backwards” – Abraham Lincoln
Matt Glatzel, high school senior, participates in Boy Scouts and is a junior firefighter at Columbia Hose Company.
Glatzel’s favorite school subject is American History. When asked who his favorite teacher is, Glatzel responded, “I can’t just pick one, so many have influenced me, and so many are my favorite for multiple different reasons.”
When considering his life after high school, Glatzel said, “I will have to work harder because I will be learning about the skills I need for my career.”
His future plans include finding a career in the petroleum and natural gas industry, but his dream job is to be part of the New York Fire Department.
Glatzel’s advice to the underclassmen would be to “Keep up with the grades.”
