Here at Highlands, every student is unique. No matter how much we think we know about our peers, we always have more to discover. In order to find these hidden stories and share them with the community, the journalism department chooses a random student to interview. Sophomore Joshua Lohner agreed to be the random student for this issue of The Hilltopper.

Joshua moved to the Fort Thomas Independent Schools district after finishing the second grade at an elementary school in Boone County. He started third grade as a Johnson Jaguar and has been a member of the district ever since. Joshua said, “The transition was fine. I made a friend right away.”

Now, as a sophomore, Joshua spends most of his time with his friends. His hobbies include playing video games, card games and soccer. He is also in the coding club and on the archery team. So far, Joshua has enjoyed this school year. He said, “The school year has been fantastic. I was surprised by how hard AP Seminar and AP World History are.”

Although he has never been out of the country, Joshua has travelled to some pretty interesting places. The furthest that he has traveled was to Yellowstone National Park, which is mostly in Wyoming and spreads into parts of Montana and Idaho, too. His favorite place to travel is Michigan.

By the end of his high school career, Joshua hopes to keep his grades up. His biggest accomplishment so far was winning second place at a chess tournament.

When asked about his plans for the future, Joshua said, “I would like to go to UC because it is close by and is a pretty de-cent school.” He also hopes to become a programmer because he finds programming exciting and an excellent career that he would want to pursue.

To find out more about the students at Highlands, like Joshua, just ask questions. It is surprising what you can discover when you try to get to know someone.
