Elijah Jones: PCHS Class of 2022 Senior Spotlight

👨‍🎓Senior Spotlight time!


👏Put your hands together for Elijah Jones! Elijah is the first-born son of Daniel and Tabitha Jones. 


🏈His favorite accomplishments in high school so far are being the captain of the football team, and recognition in football and track. 


🎯Elijah's advice for incoming freshmen..."Just relax and do what you are supposed to do."


💁‍♂️His favorite quote is from Ron Swanson, a fictional character from the TV show Parks and Recreation. "I can do what I want."


😂One of Elijah's funniest memories while at PCHS was seeing Coach Stiles participate in a pep assembly game and fall flat on his face. It was not graceful. We all enjoyed giving him a hard time afterward. 


👩‍🏫When we asked Elijah what his favorite class has been at Putnam, he replied, "My favorite class is my College English 101-102 class with Mrs. Owings."


🏈Elijah tells us his favorite moment at Putnam was "when my football team went to the district championship my sophomore year."


💙We asked Elijah what teacher or staff member has had the biggest impact on him and why. He told us, "I think Coach Mayer has been a great example to me through his hard work and never accepting less than 100% effort. I also really appreciate all the staff and custodians who keep this school running so well."


💻Elijah plans to attend Missouri S&T to earn a degree in Computer Engineering. In the next 5-10 years, he hopes to be out of college and hopefully work near Unionville to be close to family.


🥳Help us congratulate Elijah Jones!


💙We are #PutnamProud of you, Elijah, and wish you the best in your future endeavors!
