Student Spotlight on Thomaie Mihalopoulos


Luka Konklin, Staff Writer

What activities or hobbies do you enjoy outside of school? 

Out of school I have been in competitive taekwondo for 5 years now and have been teaching taekwondo for 2 years. I have been doing wrestling and boxing for around 2 years as well. I also enjoy hanging out with friends and family to keep myself busy.

What are your plans after graduation?  

I plan on going to Northampton for 2 years and then transferring to a 4-year university to hopefully get a bachelor’s degree in architectural engineering.

What is your goal for this year? 

Honestly to get past the year and pass the AP tests. I would definitely say junior year is the hardest and I hope I don’t struggle too much.

What was your favorite class at SHS? 

Out of all, so far I loved having biology with Mr. Pfeiffer. He was an outstanding teacher and made me understand science which I usually suck in.

What movie could you never get tired of watching? 

I can never get tired of watching The Outsiders. If I lived in the 1960’s you would never catch me complaining. They look like they have so much fun messing around.

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

Gas prices because I really do not want to deal with that when I start driving.

Which countries/places would you like to visit? 

I would love to visit Greece and Serbia and finally meet the family I haven’t yet.

What is your life motto? 

It may be corny, but to live every day like it’s your last. It helps me to stop procrastinating and helps me focus on all the good and kind of forget about the bad that happened throughout the day.

What profession doesn’t get enough credit or respect? 

Two words: Color Guard. It may be a biased opinion, but we work our butts off so I say it’s true.
