Jett Hagerty 

Union Mine High School

Tell us about yourself.

I’m very outgoing and passionate about whatever I’m doing, and I’m fascinated by the world around me.

What accomplishment are you most proud of and why?

My biggest accomplishment is being able to contribute to my community and campus through an eclectic array of services and actions, including keeping our environment pristine, creating a fun atmosphere on campus, and sharing my music and passion in our community.  

What are your school interests, involvements and hobbies?

I’m senior class president and president of the Environmental Club. I play varsity soccer and participate in theater; in my free time I enjoy playing violin and traveling.

What’s one thing that not many people know about you?

I know how to unicycle, juggle, watercolor, walk on stilts, work with bee’s wax, knit, felt wool, sing verses, make bread, and recite the South African national anthem. I’m Waldorf.

What are your plans after graduation?

I plan to attend Humboldt State University and study sustainability/environmental science. I want to help create a proactive, safe future while enjoying the ornate and unique offerings of Mother Earth.

Who is your role model?

My mother, for her persistence in her daily life. No matter how large the obstacle she comes out on top, because she always believes and never gives up.

Describe your career aspirations.

In college I’ll be searching for what exactly I want to do as a career; whatever I pursue, however, I will remember my core values of helping people and our environment.

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?

I think my next stop will be Costa Rica to help out on my uncle’s farm and enjoy the beautiful landscape.
