B-D Donkey Feed Staff

With high school graduation right around the corner, the Bray-Doyle Donkey Feed staff proudly bring back the annual senior spotlights. The first senior being recognized is Jade Eldridge. Eldridge has been a vital part of the Donkey Feed staff for three years. She also was recently honored with a first place finish in the Oklahoma Camera Club’s photo contest with her photojournalism photo “Safe at third.” When not taking photos, Jade has competed in Cross Country and been a part of the Bray-Doyle Archery team. Eldridge took some time out to answer our questions.

Eldridge: When I was younger I wanted to be a mermaid. 

B-D: What is an accomplishment you’re proud of?

Eldridge: I’m most proud of making the front page of the Marlow Review and also winning first place in photojournalism in the Oklahoma Camera Club Contest. 

B-D: What extra-curricular activity do you enjoy the most and why?

B-D: What will you miss the most after you graduate from Bray-Doyle? 

Eldridge: I think, I’ll miss the routine of coming here everyday. I will also miss Journalism, and Mr. Tillson’s randomness on telling us news articles. 

B-D: What class have you enjoyed the most and why?

Eldridge: I have enjoyed Journalism the most because it has brought me closer to my surroundings and understanding why some things are so important to some people. 

B-D: Who is your favorite teacher/faculty member and why?

Eldridge: My favorite teacher would definitely be Mr. Tillson because he has helped me most growing to understand writing, and he shows all his students that he cares what they are going through. 

B-D: What three words best describe you?

Eldridge: The three words that describe me the best are  an introvert, easy going and sensitive. 

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?
