Senior Profile – Raegan Ward


What are your College or Career plans after graduation?

My plans are to attend Connors State College on an archery scholarship and then graduate with my Associates Degree in Forestry/Natural Resources. I then plan to continue my education at Oklahoma State University and to obtain my Bachelor’s Degree.

What are you looking forward to the most after graduation?

I am looking forward to having a great summer to go fishing, kayaking, hanging out with my friends and so much more. I also already have plans on how I would like to decorate my dorm room!

What will you miss the most about High School?

I will definitely miss all the activities I was involved in. Also, I’m gonna miss seeing my friends everyday.

What skills did you learn in HS will benefit you the most once you have graduated?

I have learned many leadership skills, communication, and the basics of life that I will apply everyday in my future.

What has been the most challenging part of High School? Please explain.

I would have to say to balance my time. Such as, I need to study for my upcoming forestry contest but I also need to work to have money for gas in my truck. I had to keep a schedule, but it was worth it.

What “scares” or “excites” you the most about being an “adult” out in the “real world?”

What would scare me, is that I will be alone. I am a biggggg homebody and I think I’m gonna miss that the most. What would excite me, is that I will get to travel so many places to compete with my archery team.

What one piece of advice would you give to underclassmen as they prepare to graduate in a few years?

My advice, is to get out of your comfort zone. You’ll have so much fun if you get out there. I would also say, do.not.procrastinate. My last piece of advice would be to get involved.

Is there anything else you’d like to share as you prepare for graduation in May?

With everything that is going on in the world, I know we won’t get to have a traditional graduation, but we will all still get one last time with each other.
