Class of 2020 Senior Spotlight - Jordan Lyons, Woodson High School
1) What has been your biggest disappointment/hardship since schools have been closed for the remainder of the academic year?
I think the hardest thing about schools closing for the remainder of the year is that seniors are missing out on so many of the traditions that we looked forward to since we were freshmen.
2) What are your plans for the fall?
I will be attending the University of Mary Washington to play volleyball and study psychology and social anthropology.
3) What have you learned about yourself since the COVID-19 closures?
I have learned that my resiliency and flexibility are probably the most important skills to have during this situation.
4) What is your passion?
My greatest passion is volleyball, because it has taught me so many life skills off the court. I know that I am a better person because of it.
5) Have you discovered a new passion in light of social distancing?
I’ve discovered the fun in cooking. I think being able to try new recipes and even going in the kitchen without a recipe is so relaxing when there is no rush.
6) What are your hopes for the future?
I hope to one day become a criminal psychologist or criminal profiler.
7) What are you most proud of about your school experience/best memory?
I am most proud of my time management and organizational skills. Having a year round sport can be tough, but I think that I wouldn’t have been nearly as successful if I weren’t organized!
