Of the schools that you attended, which four schools were the most fun?

  • Lovington Elementary (My mother was my 1st grade teacher and my grandmother was the lunch lady, so this is a no-brainer)
  • Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (Undergrad)
  • Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (Graduate School)
  • Lovington High School

(True or False) I received a perfect attendance award.

True.

In high school, what did you think you would do for a living?

I wasn’t planning that far in advance while I was in high school. I figured it out in my last year of undergrad, so it all worked out okay.

What was your favorite childhood toy?

K’nex. Legos are #basic.

(True or False) I attended a school where the mascot was a bulldog or wildcat.

Panther and Cougar (and Redbirds, but that’s just embarrassing)

(Complete the sentence) Instead of doing homework, I would sometimes….

…watch hours of C-SPAN. In my defense, the Senate Judiciary Committee was thrilling at the time.

What songs would be on your high school mix tape?

  • A lot of Blink 182,
  • “Hands Down” by Dashboard Confessional,
  • “Lose Yourself” by Eminem, and
  • Some Jimmy Buffett, which is weird.

(Complete the sentence) My favorite lunch box was….

The vending machine in the basement.

What question(s) should we have asked?

What was the best prank you participated in while in school?

What was the go-to slow dance song at your school dances?
