“It’s really not that hard,” Lane stated. “I just do my homework on days off.”
The senior, who works 40 hours a week as a cook at McDonald’s in Hurricane, says that he likes to stay busy and earn money.
“I still maintain a 2.0 GPA while working long hours outside of school,” he said.
Lane has been employed since his sophomore year and claims he is very independent.
“I am close to my family, but for the most part, I can take care of myself.”
At 17, Lane has plans to continue working as well as looking into a secondary school for computers.
“They (computers) will always been around and will always need updates as technology continues to advance,” Lane said.
But before bidding farewell as part of the Class of 2011, Lane says that Hannan has been a great place to go to school.
“My favorite thing about school here is that it is small and everyone knows everyone. I also like it because you can get a lot of personal help from the teachers,” Lane said.
Some of his best memories come from being with his friends during the school day and the supportive teachers, staff and principal, Dr. Karen Oldham.
“Everyone is so supportive,” Lane added.
At HHS, Lane is enrolled in Vocational-Agricultural classes.
“I enjoy hands-on classes,” he said.
Lane will soon be a ‘completer’ and receive a certificate for the classes he has taken.
Lane is the son of Peggy Webb.
