After being crowned one of the first Webster Royals, Keith Fisher plans to relinquish his reign and move on to college at the University of Colorado – Boulder.
However, he is not too far removed from the throne to fondly reminisce on his time at Webster Groves High School.
As Tailgate Club founder, Student Council member, National Honor Society member, two-time Future Leader counselor and a Camp Wyman counselor his sophomore year, it seems Fisher was very involved throughout his high school career, although he stills said his advice to his freshman year self would be to be more involved.
“I was kind of hesitant when it comes to being involved in high school, but also just the social aspects of high school,” Fisher said.
Fisher said until Future Leaders freshman year, he was an introvert.
“As a freshman, my friends really were the influence of what brought me out of my bubble. I think I’ve gained a lot of insight from them, but also found what I truly enjoy, which is just time with friends,” Fisher said.
However, it is not only friends that have influenced Fisher’s time in high school; he also appreciates how supportive and fun teachers like forensics teacher Mebbie Landsness have been.
“Keith lights up any room he walks into. He is an individual that is always ready to share a smile or help a friend and the atmosphere of the class is always better when he is around,” Landsness said.
Fisher said it’s the little memories with his friends that made his high school experience what it has been.
“It’s just the random moments we have in high school. It’s the ones that bring this entire time here all together,” Fisher concluded.
This will be Emily Goben’s first year on ECHO staff, but she made several contributions while taking journalism class her sophomore year.
