Senior Spring Spotlight: PRESLEY CLARK

Five questions with Bedford North Lawrence senior Presley Clark

Sport: tennis; Career choice: Elementary education; College: Purdue Fort Wayne

Question 1: What was your reaction when the tennis season was cancelled?

Clark: I was devastated. We were all so excited for this year, so it was upsetting that we would never get to have our Senior Night or get to play one last time.

Question 2: What lessons for life did you learn from tennis?

Clark: Tennis taught me hard work and to never take anything for granted, because you never know when something could end so abruptly.

Question 3: Who has been your role model?

Clark: My parents are definitely my role models. They both show me how important hard work is and always push me to be the best I can be in school and in life.

Question 4: What will you miss most about high school?

Clark: Getting to see everyone I grew up with every day, and my teachers.

Question 5: When the restrictions are finally lifted, who’s the first person you want to see?

Clark: My Mimi is the first person I want to see. My mom hasn’t wanted us around my grandparents during all this, so when this is over me and my Mimi can go shopping and have lunch.
