Freshman Spotlight: Jillian Williams

Get to know the freshman! Every Monday the Eagle Eye will interview another member of the TAHS Class of 2022.


Eagle Eye: What is the biggest transition from middle school to high school in your opinion?

Jillian Williams: We have a lot more responsibilities that are up to us to take care of now. In middle school, we were given less freedom, so when you get up here, it’s up to you to pass.

EE: Do you have any sports or extracurricular activities you are excited to continue into high school?

JW: I am old enough to be in FFA this year, which makes me happy.

EE: What is something you will miss about middle school?

JW: I will probably miss the SOAR assemblies. Although they could be very loud and annoying at times, they were usually funny and it gave us a chance to get out of class.

EE: What is something you didn’t expect about high school?

JW: I didn’t expect the amount of work, per se. It was obvious that HS would be different and harder than MS, but it is surprising how much homework I get some days.

EE: What is your favorite thing about being in high school so far?

JW: I like being in classes with upperclassmen because it gives me a chance to meet new people and make new friends.

EE: Which class is the most difficult? Why?

JW: The most difficult is probably my Algebra 2 class. I am one of the only freshmen in the class, so I don’t know many people. Also, the things that we learn can sometimes be difficult to remember and understand.

EE: What is your favorite thing to do?

JW: I enjoy being involved in 4-H. Other than that, I like to play soccer outside with my little brother.

EE: What/who is your favorite song/artist right now?

JW: Ed Sheeran all the way, babyyy!

EE: Who is your favorite teacher, why?

JW: My favorite teacher is probably Mr.Bilka from middle school. He was my English teacher all the way back in 5th grade, and because of him, I have become a better writer and even a better public speaker; since he made us read our essays in front of the class.

EE: What advice would you give to next year’s freshman?

JW: Definitely take advantage of having an hour of advisory as a study hall. it comes in handy and can for sure help to make sure you finish your work on time.

EE: Which class is your favorite, so far?

JW: My favorite class right now is probably Spanish. It can be hard at times since it is my first year taking the language, but it is fun to learn.
