Another teacher notes that young Mr. Kirby "has leadership abilities and sticks up for the underdog." Here at HHS, this ninth grader was on the JV football and basketball teams and is on Student Council. Geometry and Fitness for Life are Conner's two favorite classes. Friends include Malea Gardner, Samuel Rust, Nathan Mass, Aaron McLavy, and Jaden Smythe.
When not at school, young Mr. Kirby enjoys playing 2K (video game) and playing basketball. His favorite food is tacos. "Caring, a leader, and courageous" are how this ninth grader describes himself. "I want to go to college for Sports Medicine," writes Conner.
Have a good next three-plus years at HHS, Conner!
