Justice Reed, senior, is proud to be a part of the class of 2020. He says his class is going to be remembered as the class that transformed PHS in both academics and athletics. Reed’s best memory is receiving the Justice Reed award in the soccer program. The Justice Reed Award was renamed from the Panther Award which was bestowed on soccer team athletes who show great dedication and skill in soccer. In 2019, it was renamed the Justice Reed Award because of Reed’s love and talent in soccer.
“This moment was so unbelievable, and it showed that hard work pays off,” Reed said.
The stay-at-home order that is forcing Reed to miss his last weeks of senior year, isn’t getting Reed too down.
Reed uses his time to work out and play video games, which he said, inspires him to get his certificate in computer hardware and technology.
Reed said he will miss his soccer teammates the most. He also said the best thing he ever experienced was when Michael Golden, math teacher, had students play the “Trashketball” learning review game. At first, Reed said he was excited to not have to go into school every day.
“I now miss going to school. School is good for the social aspect,” he said.
Reed says he regrets never going to prom. He didn’t go his junior year and wished he would’ve gone because it is something he will never be able to experience, that most high school students do.
