Introducing the New School Captains
As a new school year has rolled around, Moeller High School has appointed new school captains for the 2019-20 school year. Dobry Shaw, Michael Currin, and Hogan Daley are the newest leaders at Moeller. They have great ideas for the school year and plan on making this the best year in Moeller history.
Each of them comes with unique qualities that will drive this school to be better. They were put into this position to lead the entire school, and I believe we have three great men leading us this year.
Vice-captain, Hogan Daley, has loved every second he has been at Moeller and was so happy to hear the news that he would be one of the leaders his senior year. When Hogan was asked what kind of goals he plans on accomplishing this school year, he said, “Just positivity and definitely improve in certain areas like discipline, and also promote sporting events”.
Hogan went to SMOY and at Moeller he is in the ping pong club, on the soccer team, was a coach of house soccer, got cut from house basketball, and is in National Honor Society. Hogan has had many great memories at Moeller, however his favorite was making it to the state final last year on the soccer team. Finally, when I asked Hogan what a fun fact was about him, he unfortunately revealed to the world that he CANNOT do a standing back flip.
The other vice-captain, Michael Currin, has accomplished many things through his time at Moeller and is happy to add being a captain to his list of accomplishments. Currin’s objective this year is simple, he plans on “giving everyone a great experience, leave the school better than it was last year, and leave the school in great shape for the upcoming leaders”.
Michael went to All Saints and now seems like he is involved in everything here at Moeller. He is a part of the basketball team, the golf team, the development team, the admissions team, in the Latin club, and in National Honor Society. When I asked Michael what Moeller teacher he would like to be when he grows up, he said, “Either Mr. Ward, Mr. Schmitt, or Swaggy P”.
Currin said that there are just so many great memories that he has from Moeller, but his favorite had to be winning the state championship in basketball. He said, “being able to be a part of that team, seeing the floor, and making an impact during the season was a pretty fun experience”. And for all those wondering, Michael lived in Singapore for a year.
The school captain, Dobry Shaw, has always dreamed of being the school captain for Moeller and this year, his dream became a reality. Dobs has been described by many as one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. He plans on bringing many of his great ideas into the school year with him such as a “no-shave November” involving only seniors and putting the money towards a good cause. Dobs went to Princeton Community Middle School, where he played cello in the school orchestra. Now at Moeller, Dobs is currently on the volleyball team and was previously on the soccer team. When Dobs was asked why he applied to be a school captain he said, “I want to be up there with Ted, Feldkamp, Bambauer, and all these other great leaders, I thought a Shaw would look good up there too”. I also asked Dobs what three things everyone should experience before they graduate Moeller and he kept it short and simple. He said, “be involved in one thing that isn’t sports related, go to a school dance, and go to at least one football and basketball game.” Dobs believes this is going to be an incredible year and is so happy to be the man in charge of it all.
All three captains this year are extremely qualified for their positions and if any of you know them you know that we are in good hands for the 2019-20 school year with Dobry Shaw, Michael Currin, and Hogan Daley leading the charge. bmb
