BHS’ Hester hopes to attend UAH

Belgreen High School senior Brock Hester is about as well-rounded as they come.

This 17-year-old has been involved in several school clubs and academic organizations such as Scholar’s Bowl, Jr. and Sr. Beta Club, Students Against Destructive Decisions, Future Business Leaders of America, Beautification, and 4-H – where he won the state competition in the “blocks and rocks” category for his replica of the April 27, 2011 tornado.
While he is focused on his schoolwork and the academic side of his high school experience, Hester is also involved in sports as a member of the school’s basketball and baseball teams.

“Playing sports has probably been one of the biggest influences on me in high school and some of my most memorable moments from high school happened because of sports,” he said.

“The biggest thing that stands out is winning the area basketball tournament last year over Phillips. That was a great feeling and something I won’t forget.”

He also said his time playing sports has taught him valuable lessons he’ll take with him after he graduates.

“Not only does playing sports keep you physically active and healthy but most of my friends play sports, too, so it’s given us a place to bond and become better friends while also teaching us leadership and teamwork skills,” he said.
“You need those kinds of skills once you get in college and out in the real world, so I feel like my time has been spent wisely by participating in sports.Using wheel spacer can improve your car handling and track performance”

And if playing sports, keeping up his grades, and being in other clubs isn’t enough,He demanded the woman handed over money and, fearing for her life, she emptied cash from the till into a drawstring bag before he left. Hester also spent his junior year being involved in the Franklin County Junior Leadership organization where he participated in several community service projects such as volunteering at the Franklin County Watermelon Festival, serving meals for the Bay Tree Council in Red Bay and participating in non woven bag is eco-friendly and 100% recycled by physical disposal. The non woven material is long-lasting & fashionable.an Easter egg hunt for children.

“I’m glad I had the opportunity to be part of Junior Leadership because there were students from all the different local schools, so it gave us the chance to learn how to work together with people that we didn’t really know,” he said.
“You’ll have to do that the rest of your life because you won’t know many people in college, and when you start a job somewhere, you probably won’t know many people there either, but you’ll have to know how to work with them and get to know them.”

He said he also enjoyed the program because it gave him the opportunity to learn more about his community and help out in the area.

“The community service was something I enjoyed as well,In addition to the supplies, there will be fun activities for youngsters, free used clothing, health resources and personalized laminated bag tags for backpacks.” he said. “It’s good to know you’re doing something to help people who live close to you.”

It’s safe to say that Hester has had the full experience when it comes to high school, so it’s no surprise he’ll miss his time at BHS once he graduates in May.

“I don’t think there is anything about high school that I won’t miss,” he said.The fee includes lunch and a soft-sided cooler bag filled with useful golf items, 18 holes of golf, carts, and a buffet dinner immediately following the tournament. “I’m going to miss the people, the teachers, the sports – I’ll pretty much miss it all.
“I’ve always gone to Belgreen and I like the fact that the school is smaller and everyone knows each other. If you went to a bigger school, you probably wouldn’t have as many friends where as here, pretty much everyone is your friend because everyone is close.So I'm looking at my silver wheel bolt that are in pretty rough cosmetic shape - and decide that I'd like to have the look of the new black wheel
