Five questions with Bedford North Lawrence senior Wyatt Scherschel
Sport: track; Career choice: biochemistry; College: Purdue University
Question 1: What will you miss most about high school?
Scherschel: I miss being able to see my classmates and I miss being able to play sports, seeing myself and my classmates succeed in school and on the track.
Question 2: Can you describe your emotions when the track season was cancelled?
Scherschel: I felt like I didn’t get the closure that I wanted, because I never got to say goodbye properly. I didn’t know that junior year was going to be my last, and I didn’t know the last time I would practice with my team would be right before this started.
Question 3: Who has been you role model?
Scherschel: My role model throughout high school has been my youth minister Darrick Willoughby. I’ve always seen his positive attitude and generosity as something to strive for.
Question 4: What pointed you toward your future career path?
Scherschel: I chose biochemistry at Purdue because I’ve always had a passion for science in high school, and I want to become a doctor.
Question 5: As the restrictions are lifted, who was the first person you wanted to see?
Scherschel: I really don’t want to see one person specifically, but I want to be able to see my church family again, and I want to be able to get back into the gyms.
