Senior of the Month: November
By: Carson Essinger
IT’S BAILEY PARKE!
What do his teachers have to say?
Bailey Parke is one of the hardest workers I have ever had the honor of teaching and coaching. In the off- season, while working after school, Bailey showed up to early morning workouts and set an example for the team in the weight room. During the season, he always kept a positive attitude no matter the situation. As the 2017 Mr. Red Devil, he was mentally and physically tough, never complained, never gave up, and could always be counted on to perform. Bailey’s attitude and work ethic made us a better football team.
Bailey goes out of his way to do whatever he can to assist me or anyone else in the class. He is very creative, organized, and responsible. He is a pleasure to work with!
Bailey is a fun student who is passionate about his interests. He is friendly and quick to say, “Hi” whenever he enters a room.
Bailey is a team player who works hard to succeed.
