Westwood Horizon

Connor Cowman
As the wise man Michael Scott once said, "Don't be an idiot." Those four words changed my life forever and now serve as my personal motto. In fact, following that simple piece of advice has allowed me to get to where I am now -- a junior at Westwood High School, a member of HOSA, and a first year reporter for the illustrious Student Press. Michael Scott's timeless adage has also helped me to maintain and grow in my hobbies outside of school, which, while admittedly limited, suit my needs just fine. Writing, I have found, is just as much a passion of mine as playing video games with my friends and watching countless hours of Netflix. This rather newfound devotion is something that I hope I will be able to utilize in the future, possibly in the career of writing articles for medical journals or transcribing the work of doctors. Perhaps not the most lofty goal, but something that I look forward to all the same. All in all, I hope to be the best reporter I can be for the Student Press this year and provide the masses with all the coverage and entertainment I can. And, of course, Mister Scott's magnitudinous maxim will never leave my mind throughout all that will occur; I shall never become an idiot.
