Senior Spotlight- Ryan Turner

“We did it, because they didn’t.”


Hobbies, Interests, and Passions

  • I’m a “hobby hopper”, I can never settle on just one hobby. I’ve just jumped between multiple interests and hobbies between the past few years. For example, I liked magic at one point, then I liked psychology, then I liked different types of film making. So I think I hop from hobby to hobby.

Extracurricular activities/Clubs

  • I’ve been involved in multiple things throughout high school. I was in FFA, Band, Journalism, Drama, and Track. I first joined track to be able to tell my future kids “I did a sport in high school, you should too.” But I really ended up enjoying my experience. I enjoyed everything I did in all my different journeys.

Leadership Positions

  • It started sophomore year when I was Treasurer for Stagg FFA. Then my junior year, I was Band Treasurer and Managing Editor of The Stagg Line. Finally, my senior year, I became Band President and Editor-in-Chief of Stagg Online.

Memorable Events from High School

  • My most memorable high school experience would probably be the one’s I can’t talk about because they were just too fun 😉

Plans After High School

  • I plan on spending the summer the way I would normally, but then starting at Delta in the fall and hopefully transferring to one of my dream colleges

College/University & Study

  • I plan on attending Delta first, then hopefully transferring to UoP, UCLA, or another good college or university that has a good film program in order to become a director one day.

Most Rewarding Aspect of High School

  • The most rewarding aspect of high school for me would probably be growing as a person. When I first started high school, it was in the middle of COVID. I never really got my freshman year, and seeing everyone around me in that same situation made me think that no matter what we do, one event can all make us all feel helpless. So I thought college, career planning, and school was kind of pointless. I made multiple decisions that I really do regret now that I’m older. I feel like you realize your true potential too late in life, no matter how many people tell you how much you have. So for me, growing as a person, wanting to go to college, wanting a career, wanting a future was the most rewarding aspect.

Advice for Underclassmen

  • It’s not the end of the world, you still have time to figure things out. Don’t let the drama you’re going through or the people in your life stop you from doing great things. You can do great things if you actually try. Be a good person, life’s too short to be horrible, be nice.
