Published 5/29/2012 in Youth In ExcellenceKylan Bennett, a recent graduate of Healy High School, has some very straight forward advice for incoming freshman who have their entire high school careers ahead of them.
"Procrastination will almost always leave you with a bad grade," Bennett wrote in a questionnaire provided to The Telegram.
He said he doesn't care much for math, but ironically, he enjoys physics.
"I enjoyed physics because of all the crazy concepts and problems that could be calculated. My least favorite class was probably any math class," he said.
Bennett graduates from Healy High School with a 4.0 grade-point average, was on the superintendent's honor roll, and was part of the Western Kansas Liberty League All-Academic team, while also being involved in the National Honor Society, Student Volunteer Organization, scholars bowl, Future Farmers of America, forensics, an all-school play, as well as basketball, track, football and golf.
When choosing between his most memorable moments in high school, he chose both an academic and an athletic activity.
"Going to state my junior and senior year in scholars bowl and also playing in the northwest Kansas all-star basketball game," he said were his fondest memories of high school.
When Bennett isn't busy with school or sports, he said he enjoys hunting, fishing and being with friends and family.
His piece of advice to his fellow graduates is for them to remember where they came from and all the good times they had in Healy.
His plan is to attend McPherson College in the fall, where he will major in biochemistry. His ultimate goal is to become a chiropractor.
He hopes he is remembered by his classmates in two ways.
"I want to be remembered as the nice kid with the sense of humor," he said.
