Student Spotlight on Aaron Kirby


Jessica Brady, Staff Writer

What motivates you to come to school?

One thing that motivates me to come to school every day is seeing my friends in my classes.

What activities do you enjoy outside of school? 

Some activities that I enjoy doing are playing on the baseball, golf, and wrestling teams.

What is your goal for this year?

My number one goal for this school year is to get A’s in all of my classes.

 What is the greatest experience you ever had?

The greatest experience I ever had was winning the New Jersey World Series with my travel baseball team.  The experience was like playing in an MLB stadium.

What is something that you have learned in your childhood that has stuck with you? 

One thing that I’ve learned in my childhood that has stuck with me was learning all of the U.S. state capitals when I was in first grade.

What is your favorite class at Stroudsburg High School?

My favorite class at SHS is Advanced Gym because it helps me stay healthy and strong.

What movie could you never get tired of watching?

The movie that I can watch over and over again is Miracle because it shows how a team of ice hockey amateurs can win the Olympic gold medal.

If there is one thing you could change in the world, what would it be? 

One thing that I would change if I had the chance right now is to end the Coronavirus. Nobody likes wearing masks, especially in school. Everybody wants to gather and hang out with each other instead of being forced to stay inside away from friends.

Which countries/places would you like to visit?

I would really want to travel to Hawaii because it is warm and tropical, there are multiple islands and volcanoes to explore, and the ocean water is clear and would just be cool to swim in.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be?

If I could have any superpower, I would want to time travel.  How cool would it be to go into the future to see where you end up in life?!
