Daniel Emerson, who lives in Buzzards Bay, is an Upper Cape Cod Regional Technical High School senior who has been studying automotive technology.
Daniel said he did not participate in any clubs or activities while in school, but he found a lot of value in the work he did in the classroom.
“Honestly, I really liked all of my classes and all of my teachers,” he said. “They made things either interesting or simple and helped me learn everything that I needed to know to do well.”
After graduation, Daniel said he plans to enjoy spending the summer with his girlfriend. He will then be joining the US Air Force.
One of his fondest high school memories happened at the start of his freshman year, he said, when he was able to explore the different shop offerings at the school.
“Seeing what I could do, what I could learn,” he said. “It was fascinating and fun, and despite it being years ago, I haven’t forgotten a day of it.”
Daniel thanked his teachers for teaching what he needs to know, his classmates and friends for making school less tedious, his parents for their support, and his girlfriend, Brianna, for loving him even though they attend different schools.
