As a student at Bourne High School, William Mackie has been a member of the football team and the school band.
William said that he will be attending Stonehill College next year and wants to earn a degree in a math-related field. He said that he has not decided exactly which field at this time.
When asked about his favorite memory, William said that it would have to be when the Southeastern Music Festival was held in the school and he and the other band students spent the weekend setting up for the festival and listening to the bands.
“I remember how amazed we all were after just hearing bits and pieces of them playing as we walked around the school,” he said. “We would sometimes pop in the doorway just to get a glimpse of what they were doing, especially those who were playing in the jazz band.”
He said that even a few years later, he remembers hearing the bands play as though it were only a week ago.
William said that he would like to thank his parents for pushing him to do his best.
