Amir Kelow, ’25, is a seventh grader at WHHS. He plans to follow in his family’s footsteps to enter into the construction industry, specifically, demolition.

Here at WHHS, a majority of the students experience academic pressure and stress. Many of these students also fit in time for extracurricular activities, including sports.

Some of our students, especially seventh graders, must adjust to the new school environment alongside these challenges. 

One of these seventh graders, Amir Kelow, ‘25, is participating in the winter sport of basketball.

Coming from Hyde Park School, Kelow has quickly eased into the new environment of WHHS. “Everyone’s nice, everyone welcomes you in, no one treats you differently,” said Kelow. 

On top of this, Kelow has been building big dreams coming from a family legacy: becoming a demolitionist. Demolition is the practice of tearing down and destroying man-made things safely. 

Kelow stated that his father and grandfather have also worked in the business of construction so, becoming a demolitionist would be his perfect future. 

Kelow is not participating in any clubs, but he still has enough on his plate as a new student at WHHS. 

Because of the stress of transitioning to a new school, joining a club or team makes the process a lot easier. Navigating a new and large school is a lot easier when you have friends by your side.
