Finally, receiving the First-place exemplary rating for the IHSA short film.

Bradley explains, “My favorite high school memory was when our contest play won sectionals my sophomore year. I remember that day being a very long, rewarding, and fun day. It was really cool to see a bunch of other schools perform, and it was nice that our hard work paid off in the end. I remember the bus ride back being full of energy, everyone was going crazy and yelling with excitement. Then later that day me and a few other cast members saw a movie at night which was a bad idea because we all fell asleep during it.”

Bradley has this advice for future Wildcats, “Don’t be afraid to get involved. There are all sorts of activities at this high school for everyone, find the ones you like and make the most of your time. How fun your high school experience will be depends on what you do. Participate in all the spirit days, go to events, and be a part of activities.” After graduation, Alex plans to attend college to major in either theater or communications before pursuing a career in the arts.
