There are some wonderful personalities being overlooked at Lowry because they aren’t in a sport or a club. Sure, the jocks, the cheerleaders, and the otherwise “popular” kids are pretty cool, but not as cool as the kids who play Magic in the cafeteria every morning or the ones who are incredibly smart and artistic.
The following people have the kind of perseverant attitudes, positive personalities, and unending kindness that will last their whole lives. These kids have every quality anyone looks for in a friend, so basically, if you don’t know these people; you’re missing out.
First up is an incredibly special kind of person; Armando Vaca. If you know Armando you know that he’s probably the nicest person you’ll ever meet. You also know that he never has to try to be nice, it just comes naturally. Not only is he kind, but he’s also funny, phenomenally artistic, and incredibly smart. Armando is in Advanced Art, he has a part-time job and a wide array of hobbies. He is skilled in the art of video games (mostly first-person shooters) and clever retorts.
The next unknown, but incredibly awesome, person is John Slaton. He is also one of the nicest people at this school. He has a quirky sense of humor which can make for some very interesting conversations. Like Armando, John is also funny and smart. He’s a quality guy who respects every person around him. He’s very laid back but he knows when to get serious. He loves writing poetry and reading.
Last but not least is Cheyenne Gamble. If you’re friends with Cheyenne, you know you’ve hit the bestie jackpot. This girl is nice to everyone; I don’t think she has a mean bone in her body. She enjoys reading, mostly teen dramas like “The Mortal Instruments”, her favorite show is MTV’s “Awkward.” and she loves to make others laugh. Cheyenne is kind of shy but makes up for that when you finally get to know her.
These are just three of the amazing people at Lowry who go unnoticed because they’re not in a club or a sport. In the issues to come, there will be recognition of more of these wonderful people. In the meantime, if you see these students feel free to congratulate them on simply being awesome.
