Easton McClanahan is the Williamstown High School Youth Performance Award winner for December. He is a senior at Williamstown High School and is the son of Donna McClanahan.
Extra-curricular activities: I am very involved in 4-H. I am in many 4-H clubs. For example, I am team captain on the LifeSmarts Team. I serve as a member on the 4-H State Teen Council. I also serve on the Grant County 4-H Adult Council. I am a member of Williamstown Christian Church and I serve on the Grant County Jr. Fair Board. Likewise, I am also involved in school. I play on the varsity golf team and I am a member of both the Key Club and National Beta Club. I serve as the president of the National Honors Society and am the senior class treasurer.
Community Involvement: I tutor younger students, I’ve helped with community wide food drives, I’ve been a member of the teen court program. I’ve helped build handicapped ramps and talked to youth about anti-bullying. I’m a Red Cross blood donor, volunteer at the Summer Splash Program and am a 4-H camp youth counselor.
Class schedule: My classes this year consist of AP Biology, AP English, Animal Science, Psychology, Pre-Calculus and dual credit courses at Northern Kentucky University Grant County Center.
Favorite class or classes and why: My favorite class would be my classes at Northern Kentucky University because I am receiving college credits while still in the high school atmosphere. It is a good transition from high school to college.
Favorite teacher or teachers and why: My favorite teacher would have to be Paul Simpson, my psychology instructor. Mr. Simpson makes learning fun, while still preparing us for our futures and challenging us academically.
What do you do for fun/recreation: I’m pretty much the same as any high school senior when it comes to recreation. I like to relax and spend time with my family and friends before we all head off to college to start our adult lives.
Future plans: I am more than likely going to be attending Eastern Kentucky University next fall. While there I want to study chemistry, with hopes of going to medical school to become a physician.
