Senior Spring Spotlight: ETHAN VAUGHN

Five questions with Bedford North Lawrence senior Ethan Vaughn

Sport: track; Career choice: actuarial science; College: Purdue

Question 1: What lessons did high school sports teach you?

Vaughn: High school sports taught me to work hard and persevere even when something doesn’t go as planned.

Question 2: Who has been your role model?

Vaughn: My dad has been a role model for me. My dad has always put others before himself and continually challenges himself with new goals. That is what I strive to be like.

Question 3: Can you describe your emotions after the track season was cancelled?

Vaughn: I was kind of shocked how quickly it was cancelled and was definitely disappointed. I worked hard during the winter and early spring to have a great season.

Question 4: What pointed you toward your future career path?

Vaughn: My step-dad mentioned actuarial science to me one evening when I was talking about other financial professions with him. I looked into it and it seemed like a blend of other financial professions, which really appeals to me.

Question 5: As the restrictions are lifted, who’s the first person you wanted to see?

Vaughn: My dad, because he lives in Florida, so I haven’t been able to see him since winter break.
