For the next several weeks B-C-S will be featuring our 2019 graduating Seniors! A fun fact about this year’s graduating class is that there are 4 sets of twins that will be graduating this coming May! Each week we will feature one of 4 sets of graduating twins.
This week B-C-S is featuring, Class of 2019 Senior’s Emily and Carson Jess!
1. Please tell the B-C-S Community a little about yourself.
Emily: My name is Emily Jess and I am 18 years old. I love music and enjoy performing in the OHHS Marching Band, Mixed Choir, Concert Band, Jazz Band, Pep Band, and Music Performance. I also spend time at Terra with their band on Monday nights. Theatre is also a passion I love pursuing and was recently seen in Three For A Show and the musical Footloose. I also enjoy writing and helping others out. I was recently inducted into the National Honors Society and have been doing everything I can to be involved in it. I am a leader in most ensembles I am a part of and love helping my sections out and being a role model. Looking forward, I am excited to graduate and start a new journey to see what else life has to offer.
Carson: My name is Carson Jess. I am a percussionist section leader in concert and marching band, snare drummer in marching and pep band, electric guitarist in jazz band, handbell player in the St Paul UCC handbell choir, and student in the Music Performance class. I was also an auxiliary percussionist in the pit orchestra for the OHHS Thespians performance of "The Pajama Game" and "Footloose". I have performed at several major events including the 2015 Orlando Citrus Parade, the 2017 Anthony Wane Band Festival, and the Cedar Point Halloweekends Parade in 2015. I enjoy building Legos and K'nex, playing video games, and putting together jigsaw puzzles. I am also a huge roller coaster enthusiast, as well an avid Nerfer (AKA I play with Nerf blasters).
2. What are your career plans and goals and how do you plan to achieve them?
Emily: I am going to Ohio University to pursue my major in nursing. With hard work and determination, I plan on graduating with a bachelor’s degree. My goal is to be a Nurse Practitioner and assist in the emergency room.
Carson: I want to work in the roller coaster industry. In other words, I want to build, design, create parts to, or operate roller coasters. In the long term, I want to create a new roller coaster element, be it an inversion, turn, or other maneuver. To pursue a job in the roller coaster industry, I am attending the University of Toledo to earn a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering.
3. What is your favorite high school memory?
Emily: Although it is difficult to dim it down to one, I would have to say one of my favorite high school memories is being with the marching band in the stands, cheering on our football team. It was the Oak Harbor versus Port Clinton game and our senior show. When the clock hit zero in the final quarter, I remember cheering loudly with everyone around me. We were going to playoffs! I was so happy I could not keep myself from da
Carson: My favorite high school memory has to be when I performed in our band's First Annual Marching Band End-of-Season Concert last November. Basically, once marching season was over, the band decided to do a concert in which we perform all of the songs we played over the season. We were dressed in full uniform, but didn't wear shakos. We marched in the gym to our Entry cadence at a faster tempo, starting off with high energy. We then played all of our songs and gave out various awards (starting a new tradition; these awards are not ones that would be given out during music awards in May). At the end, the drumline (myself included) gathered in front of the band (pretty close to the audience) and played through all of our marching cadences in the way we would in a parade. It was more just a fun night, it was a night of memories. I have always wanted to do a marching concert, and it not only featured the drumline, but also inspired young musicians.
4. What is the best advice you could give to underclassman?
Emily: The best advice I can give an underclassman is to not let yourself be consumed by fear and smugness. Go to the games, go to homecoming and prom, participate in spirit week and pep assemblies, and join a club. Experience high school, you only get one chance. Not only will it provide good times, but you might also even get closer with your friends. It isn’t only about the events either, it’s the pride you carry about going to a school that has the ability to offer so many amazing opportunities. Have pride in being a rocket, it will change your whole outlook on being at high school. You will have more enjoyable experiences and a more positive attitude.
Carson: The best advice I could give to an underclassman is this: If you're going to procrastinate, do so after starting an assignment rather than before. Having some progress on an assignment before you put it off will take a considerable load off your shoulders since there is already less work to do than before. Basically, rather than waiting to do an assignment until the day before it is due, at least get a head start on it.
5. What’s on your bucket list this summer?
Emily: My bucket list for this summer includes going to the beach, spending too much time at cedar point, being with my friends, exploring fun activities outside of Oak Harbor, and maybe even learn how to skateboard!
Carson: My bucket list for this summer includes visiting Kings Island and getting a summer job.
