The Average Hat: Nathan Gans


This is part of a new series, The Average Hat, where we highlight students randomly picked from the student body to showcase how impressive and diverse our student body is. 

This week, freshman Nathan Gans.


Q: You’re a freshman–what do you like most about being at high school?

A: I like having an entire hour in the middle of the day during HATS where I’m free to do whatever I want. We didn’t have that in middle school.


Q: What do you do after school?

A: I ride my bike around my neighborhood with some friends in my grade who live close by. We have been friends since middle school. I mostly just spend time playing outside with friends. I haven’t watched any TV shows or movies as of late. I also like to read, but I don’t have a favorite book.


Q: Do you have any siblings?

A: I have two brothers younger than me. We are close.


Q: What is your favorite food? What about from the cafeteria?

A: I like spaghetti. From the cafeteria, I like chicken sandwiches.


Q: What’s your favorite class that you have taken at high school?

A: I am taking U.S. History now and it’s my favorite.


Mr. Curtis Dunaway, Nathan’s U.S. History teacher, had something to add:

“Nate is the quiet assassin, focused and intense. Fun fact: for the first two weeks of class, I thought he was a different student and I called him Michael.”
