Senior Day — Shelby Proctor

Recognizing our senior athletes from the almost 2020 spring season

Parents: John and Carol Proctor.

Spring Sport: Trap.

Coach: Denise Myers, Kenny Anderson and Ed Pennington.

Other Sports: Volleyball and basketball.

Favorite sports memories: Spending so much time with and creating so many memories with my best friends, the fun bus rides, singing all the way to away games on the bus with everyone and winning my senior night volleyball game.

What will you miss about high sports? Mostly playing with my best friends and being with them more than not, but also seeing my parents in the stands at every single one of my sporting events.

What has living through this crisis as a high school senior taught you? That you never know when something can happen to you that will change your life forever. You have to live your life to the fullest while you have the chance because you never know when those chances will be taken from you.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be? Definitely Japan because the culture looks very interesting.

Cats or dogs? Dogs.

Favorite hobby? Trap because it’s very peaceful.

Favorite social media platform? Snapchat.

If you could only have one artist/group on the repeat playlist, who would it be? No way I could pick just one, but anything soft-toned like soft pop or sweet country.

What is something that people would be surprised to know about you? I love adventure and learning about new things.

What is the best piece of advice that someone has given you? “Once you start something, you better always finish it,” and “something earned that wasn’t given is better than something given that wasn’t earned.”

Biggest influences and why? My parents because they always push me to do my best and have always supported me with everything I do.

Plans after graduation: Attend Penn State DuBois and major in forest ecosystem management.

Message to underclassmen: When people tell you time flies while you’re young realize that it truly does and embrace every moment of it. Always try to see the best in every experience because you can never turn back the clock. And always remember that happiness isn’t always getting what you want all the time, it’s about loving what you have and being grateful for it.
