Hawk of the Week #002: Catherine Corbin

Blue Hawk of the Week #002: Catherine Corbin, Grade 10 (aka Birdybrain, Cat, Cathy, Corbinator, Googoo, and Doctors Without Borders).

What’s your proudest achievement?

“It is, without a doubt, being elected sophomore class president. I actually cried when I heard it on the announcements and Mr. Magliozzi’s previous 7th Period English class can vouch for that. No academic achievement could surpass how meaningful this was for me, for I was chosen not by adults, but by my peers.”

What are your favorite classes? Why?

“I love my AP United States History class, because I find it intriguing how I could listen to Mr. Blais lecture for hours and not get even remotely bored. Also, I love my honors Sophomore English class with Mr. Provost, because to start, Mr. Provost is possibly the coolest guy ever. And secondly, I feel that I am constantly having major aha moments when he teaches.”

What are your hobbies?

“I love smiling, kicking butt at fantasy football, watching ‘The Office’, listening to music that my friends do not like, and being a killer big sister. Also, I’m a die hard politico and a non-fiction book nerd.”

What is your favorite song currently?

“It is definitely ‘The Oogum Boogum Song’ by Brenton Wood. If you are ever sad, please listen to this song and it will be impossible to be sad anymore.”

What is something about you that no one knows?

“I know this sounds super weird, but I drink Frank’s Red Hot to pull all-nighters. I swear it works!”

Anything to add?

“Y’all seriously rock and I’m so proud to be a Blue Hawk.”
