As a way to honor the seniors of Harrison, the Harrison Pulse is doing a segment where we share a Q&A with selected Raiders from the class of 2017. Each day we will be releasing another part of this series. Today's senior is Elijah Wood:
What was your favorite class at Harrison?
My favorite class was Physics with Mr Smiley.

Don't bomb your GPA yet.
What is your favorite TV show?

I was so scared to give a first kiss goodbye that it ended up being just a little peck and then we both immediately turned around and walked away from each other.
What is your favorite memory from Harrison?
Being elected onto the homecoming court when I was a junior. It was crazy for me to think that my peers would vote for me over some of the other choices.
Who is your favorite teacher and why?
Mr. Cotten because I like his dry sense of humor, and also Mr. Smiley because he tells the best stories and is incredibly nice.
What will you miss about high school?
I'm gonna miss all the friends I've acquired along my way. It makes me happy to meet so many wonderful people.
What won’t you miss about high school?
I won't miss the blocked internet and the food.
What do you plan on doing after high school?
I plan to go on a 2 year mission trip and afterwards attend Ball State.
