Q & A with Kendall Farthing

R.R. What will you miss most from Blue Ridge High School?

K.F. Seeing my most important people every day. 

R.R. Who is your favorite teacher, and why?

K.F. Swaha is my favorite teacher because he never fails to make me laugh on a bad day, I know I can always go to his office if I ever need to. He is always there to help me when I need it especially when it comes to college stuff because I want to major in what he does. I know he will never let me down and I can always joke around with him and he can joke around with me and he will always put up with me when I am being the most annoying.

R.R. What is your favorite class this year?

K.F. My independent study with Swaha.

R.R. What is your favorite lunch from the school’s cafeteria?

K.F. Hot ham and cheese on a pretzel roll with mustard sauce.

R.R. Do you have any advice for underclassmen?

K.F. Always try your best and work as hard as you can all the time no matter how much you dont want to, keep pushing through. Hard work always pays off in the end. Dont slack on work as well, if something is due, dont wait til the last minute to do it. Finishing your homework early will give you so much more freedom and time to do things you enjoy. Most importantly though, have fun, live in the moment, don’t grow up too fast because graduation will come faster than you think and you won’t be a kid anymore so enjoy being a kid while it lasts because it wont last much longer.
