JORDON: My favorite memory from my time at Woodcreek is Santa’s Helpers with NHS, because I love serving the kids at Kaseburg and getting into the Christmas spirit.

Every year, it’s always such a positive and funny atmosphere to be a part of and in doing so, we’ve been able to raise money for different service projects and organizations throughout the years.


Where do you imagine yourself in 10 years?

If there was a soundtrack to your life so far, what type of music would it be? 

JAROD: Cool jazz

BRADY: Disco music

DANIEL:  It would be smooth jazz because I am very laid back and complex at the same time.

KODY: Reggae Music- Once a Day by Michael Franti- if you don’t know who he is, get on YouTube and check out the video.


CHEYENNE: It would be awfully eclectic, so anything except opera because it is hard to dance to.

KIRA: If there was a soundtrack to my life so far, it would probably have a lot of rap music on it because that’s pretty much all I ever listen to; but it would also have to have some John Mayer on there for when I want to relax. 

FAITH: It would probably be a mix of all music genres.


BELLA: If there was a soundtrack to my life, it would be an accumulation of Queen, ABBA, and a variety of Broadway show tunes. 


Which artist would perform on the soundtrack to your life? Why?

JAROD: Taylor Swift because it’s Taylor Swift!

BRADY: Eazy-e because I live my life ruthless. 

DANIEL:  John Mayer because I love him as an artist and when he plays music, he plays it with passion and I try to be passionate about everything I do in life.

KODY: I don’t feel like I could pick just one artist for the soundtrack of my life; however, if I could chose a few to portray my life, they would be Kenny Chesney, because he represents kindness and heart; Chris Stapleton, because he takes you back to your roots; Slightly Stupid, because they represent what I would love to do – surf, go to the beach, and kick back.  

MAGGIE: The Queen Meghan Trainor because she is my favorite singer.

CHEYENNE: Queen because they are so versatile and talented! 

KIRA: Travis Scott because he is my #1 favorite artist and I listen to his music constantly. 

FAITH: Bruno Mars because I love him. 

JORDON: Hannah Montana, because she always has upbeat and fun songs, and she is the childhood Queen of Pop. 

BELLA: The group ABBA would most definitely perform on the soundtrack to my life. I love their unique and fun sound. Plus it’s always an epic dance party when ABBA is playing.


Which musician best represents your personality and why?

JAROD: Bruno Mars because he’s pretty down to earth and looks like he has a lot of fun making music.

BRADY: John Mayer because he’s extremely attractive and he always gets the people going.

DANIEL: I think Jack Johnson is the musician who best represents me because he is super relaxed, has a wonderful voice, and is a master with the 6 string (guitar).

KODY: Kenny Chesney, because he is very positive, writes songs from the heart and just seems like a genuinely nice person who cares about others.

MAGGIE: Post Malone because he spreads positivity. He’s always trying to make others laugh, and he cares about people. 

CHEYENNE: Anthony Ramos because he is family-oriented, socially conscious, and unafraid to be himself. 

KIRA: The artist who would perform on the soundtrack to my life would be Travis Scott because he is my #1 favorite artist and I listen to his music constantly. 

FAITH: Madonna because I’m a Material Girl and Marilyn Monroe because Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend

JORDON: Pink, because we both have really fun personalities and both challenge ourselves. 

BELLA: (I’m so sorry for being so repetitive, but I’m a major fan.) I think the musicians who best represent my personality would be ABBA. I love how upbeat their sound is and I’m a big fan of spontaneous jam sessions, and ABBA has never failed me there. It’s very bubbly and out there, and overall, I just really vibe with it. 


If you had a theme song for your everyday life, what would it be and why?

JAROD: Don’t Stop Me Now by Queen because the song is an absolute BOP with a good message.

BRADY: Mo Bamba

DANIEL: It would be You Make Me Feel Like Dancing by Leo Sayer because it’s a song that just makes you happy and makes you want to dance and that’s how I try to live.

KODY: Cool Kids by EchoSmith- because at the end of the day everyone wants to be accepted for who they are, no matter what.

MAGGIE: Neverending Story from Stranger Things would represent my life because each day I live through I add new memories to my story. 

CHEYENNE: Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Ashley, because we all need the daily motivation that Rick will never give up on us, never gonna let us down, and never gonna run around and desert us. 

KIRA: It would be Girls Just Want to Have Fun by Cyndi Lauper. The reason is pretty self-explanatory. 

FAITH: Faith by George Michael is literally a whole song with my name in it and Walking On Sunshine by Katrina and the Waves is just really upbeat.  

JORDON: My theme song for my everyday life is Lose Control, because it’s a fun, hype song that gets you ready for the morning or anything that challenges you. 

BELLA: It would be the Golden Girls theme song because the four elderly women in the show are living their best lives in a most carefree manner, and those are elements of a lifestyle I’d like to live by.


Share a memory based on a specific song.

JAROD: Freshman year, my dad took me to my first big concert and Paul McCartney opened up the show with Hard Day’s Night by the Beatles

BRADY: Tuesday ft. drake because the club always goes up on Tuesday.

DANIEL: The song I Don’t Care was playing at homecoming my freshman year when all the seniors lifted me up above the crowd and it was a great introduction to high school. 

KODY: Whenever we go on a road trip, my Mom becomes the car D.J. and she knows my song and My Dad’s go-to song is Chicken Fried by The Zac Brown Band.  It always makes me laugh because my Dad acts like a big goofball when he sings.

MAGGIE: The song We Ready is played before every home basketball game to get pumped up as we run around the locker room and form a dance circle. 

CHEYENNE: Rather Be by Clean Bandit reminds me of my freshman year in Hip Hop Club and the amazing family I found there. 

KIRA: The song Congratulations by Post Malone was one of the last songs playing at Night on the Quad last year and it reminds me of how much fun I had with all of my friends who were seniors last year! 

FAITH: Baby Shark started playing when I was working concessions at a swim meet and a bunch of people stopped what they were doing to dance to it. 

JORDON: The song Fergalicious, because every time the Cross Country girls need to get hyped up for a race, we listen to Fergalicious

BELLA: The song The Way You Make Me Feel by Michael Jackson started accidentally playing on the school’s overhead system during a Les Miserables show last year. It was the funniest thing ever and everyone couldn’t stop laughing about it.
