You might say he’s a little nutty
by CHRIS MELBOURN
Aaron Hall is a freshman in his first semester at Longview. Born in Utica, New York, he has basically lived in Lee’s Summit all his life. Having graduated from Lee’s Summit North last year, he found that Longview was his best choice of colleges because it was affordable and two minutes from his house.
“Longview is really cool because it’s not that big and it’s cheap, too. Also, like half my school goes here, so I pretty much know everybody,” Hall commented.
He only goes to class on Monday, Wednesday and Friday so he has time to do homework on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
“It helps to have those days in between to do homework and it gives me the whole day to do it,” he said.
Other than school, though, what makes him tick? He’s an avid New York Jets fan for starters.
“Man, if they had Chad Pennington in, they’d be doing just fine, but I got a feeling that they can still come back,” he said.
Not only does he like watching football, he likes playing too. He comments, “Shoot, I’ll just chill for like two plays and then all the sudden take off on the next one. Touchdown, sucka!!”
Playing basketball and bowling are other sports that he participates in. He’s one of the few people who can say they’ve bowled a 300 game.
“Man, I was trying not to get that excited or anything when it happened, but it’s a really cool thing to accomplish,” he said.
Another cool thing is that he has one of the most satisfying jobs in the world. He works at St. Joseph’s Hospital delivering food and medicine to the sick patients who depend on him. Some of the patients have been there over a year now.
“I like working there because the patients are pretty cool and they are really thankful when you bring their medicine and food to them. You get kind of attached to them,” he said.
Aaron Hall is pretty much just a cool guy looking for his way in life and trying to figure out what he wants to do.
“Hopefully my experiences at Longview will help me when I move on to the next phase of my life,” he said.
