Where are they now?

Rank&File followed up with past senior superlative winners to see what they are up to and if their old titles still hold true today.

never on time

“I won ‘never on time’ in high school because I was never on time. I was always around 10 minutes late to the first class of the day, and all my teachers expected it. Everyone in the main office knew my name too. It’s been six years since I won that superlative and I still think I’m never on time, although I like to believe that I’ve been better. I’m in medical school right now and timeliness is expected for all students. When I go to class, I always try to give myself extra time to get ready in the morning so that I’m on time. Luckily, there are days in medical school that are so exciting that it makes me want to wake up super early in the morning. Down the road, I hope to find a specialty and practice that I love so much that I wake up excited every morning, on time.”

mr. and ms. monopoly

“I think I was most likely selected for this superlative because of my involvement with DECA. My friends and I were really involved and I got to attend Nationals three times, placing seventh in my event when I went junior year. I’ve also always had a really driven personality and am pretty dedicated to the things I set out to achieve. I feel really proud of what I’ve been able to accomplish over the last six years. I thrived in college at Virginia Tech and think that the opportunities that I’ve been given continue to amaze me. I currently work in marketing strategy at the Victoria’s Secret headquarters, focused specifically on our mobile app. I’ve been able to have a lot of responsibility at a young age and I’m excited about what the future holds.”

presidential nominee 2032

“I think the obvious reason [I recieved this superlative] was my involvement with the class of 2015’s student government board, which I served on all four years of high school. But I think my designation as a future political candidate stemmed more from my leadership style, and my perceived personality. It didn’t hurt that I also spent most of my high school career in business casual attire, and had participated in debate club. I’m not sure if the title ever fit with me in the first place. I always felt that the title reflected my diplomatic nature with people and the image I tried to project, which was someone professional and ready to hold discussions with everyone and anyone from all social or academic standings. My involvement with politics has taken a different direction at William and Mary. I’m not so much interested in crafting student legislation and liaising between the university and students as I was in high school. However, I would say that the diplomatic facet of my superlative is something I have embraced more at university; my main focus is cultural diplomacy and grassroots activism, and less so bureaucratic engagement, like sitting on a student board. I’m actively involved in the Middle Eastern Music Ensemble, Middle Eastern Student Association, IMRAA […] and research groups such as AidData. My engagement with politics is more global and less institutional than in high school. My language studies illustrate this well. I have been studying Arabic, Russian, and had the opportunity to learn Tajik during a fulbright scholarship to Tajikistan. I think if my peers, or I, had to give me a new superlative, it would be ‘Future Ambassador.’”
