UNITED: Marcus, McAdoo receive senior of the month honors
ARMAGH — Taylor Marcus and Caleb McAdoo were the chosen seniors for the month of November at United High School. Marcus and McAdoo excel in academics, are hardworking and dedicated to their respective high school activities.
Taylor has been a majorette for 12 years and was the “feature twirler” of the majorettes for two years.
She is also the treasurer for the National Honor Society.
After high school, Mar- cus plans on going to college.
While she hasn’t entirely made up her mind yet, she is leaning toward attending the University of Pittsburgh.
She wants to go into the medical field and specifically into the pharmaceutical field because “I enjoy helping people. It makes me feel good knowing that I have helped someone with even something small like giving a person the right medication.”
When asked how it felt being named senior of the month, Taylor said, “It feels very rewarding. It feels good to be recognized for all the hard work I’ve been doing.”
Randy Rearick, science teacher, said that Taylor “is hardworking, has a great personality and truly deserves the recognition.”
Caleb is known for his academic and athletic skills and for his dedication to aiding the environment.
He has played basketball for United teams for 10 years and has played on United’s soccer team for two.
After high school he plans on attending Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and earning a degree in ecology and conservation in order to further his goals in helping the environment.
When asked what his future holds, he said, “I will continue to keep up the good work and strive to achieve my goals.”
He was also asked why helping the environment is so important to him and responded, “We have to keep the Earth livable. If we don’t have a place to live, nothing else really matters.”
In addition, Caleb said, “It feels good to know that people recognize not only my accomplishments but that of other students who were chosen (as seniors of the month) in the past.”
When asked his opinion of Caleb, Brian Manges, science teacher, said, “I voted for him three times; it’s about time he was given the award!”
