Who’s better: Duke, Duke or Duke?


By Mike Walsh

Posted in Preston Journal Student Writing Project

Before I write for everyone here in the Journal I should probably tell everyone a little about myself. My name is Mike Walsh, the son of Andy and Maggie Walsh. I currently am a senior at Fillmore Central. I have one sister, Caitlyn, who is in ninth grade. I enjoy the outdoors, especially when it is dealing with any type of sports. Sports are a big part of my life for anyone that doesn’t know me. I am involved in baseball and basketball; however, I do believe I am going to be going out for golf when the spring season rolls around. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends.

One thing that is really important to me is school. I am involved in several clubs at Fillmore Central. I just was elected student council president. I belong to SADD (Student Against Destructive Decisions), school newspaper, scholar club, radio show, and band. I try to be involved in school as much as possible.

Being a senior, I guess its time to start thinking about my college future. I actually just got my first letter of acceptance back in the mail a couple of days ago from Winona State. I was pretty excited! My college plans as of right now are to attend Winona State to get my under-graduate degree in Athletic Training and then continue on to graduate school and pursue a master’s degree in Physical Therapy. It may seem like a long time until school is over, but I know time is going to fly and I will be in session at Winona State in the blink of an eye.

I thought since this is my first time ever writing for the Journal, I should first entertain the audience with a “getting to know the writer” kind of article. I look forward to writing for the paper now that everyone knows me. I hope I didn’t bore anyone by lecturing about myself. Just a heads up for the next time I write, I really like the Duke Blue Devils so if any of you are fans you are going to find a good article exclaiming why they are ten billion times better than the North Carolina Tar Heels. For all you Tar Heel fans out there, you should learn to wear the right kind of blue. On a more serious note though, I do look forward to writing for the Fillmore County Journal and want to thank them for the opportunity. GO DUKE!

Mike Walsh is a senior at Fillmore Central High School. He is one of the eight area students participating in the Journal Writing Project, now in its 14th year.
