Sitting in a classroom all day can be hard for students and for most students they just need to find a way to release the energy. For this week’s senior spotlight, Wesley Saltsman, running is the way to exert that energy. Being a part of the track, football, cross country and basketball teams helped run off that energy. While being a member of the Bray-Doyle academic team and band, Saltsman got to use his brains and creativity. Saltsman took a minute to answer some of our questions.

B-D: How would you like to be remembered as you leave Bray-Doyle?

B-D: What are some words of wisdom you would give to the under-classmen?

Saltsman: Do not ever give anything, but your best at practice! You may have a bad day, not feel like it, or think you’re already too good, but you have more potential to tap into than you probably realize.
