Senior Katherine Moss was chosen as a Featured Senior by Hometown Rankin Magazine. Hartfield faculty and staff are proud of Katherine's hard work at school and in her community, and we are glad to have her represent the Hawks in this way. We are pleased to include her interview with Hometown Rankin Magazine. 
1. Describe your senior year in three words. 
Exciting, Spontaneous, and Fruitful

2. If you could create one mandatory course for future seniors, what would it be?
I would create a life skills course for senior because so many seniors graduate without knowing skills necessarily need to succeed in life.

3. “I will always remember…”
I will always remember when the girls’ basketball team won the state championship for the first time in Hartfield history and the entire student section stormed the court to celebrate alongside the team!

4. If you could change one school rule, what would it be?      
If I could change one school rule, I would change the rule that we are only allowed to have water in the classrooms.

5. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
In ten years, I hope to own my own design business and be happily married with a family.
6. Who was your favorite teacher throughout all of high school and why?
Although I have so many favorite teachers and they have all touched my life in many different ways, I would have to say Mr. DeLaughter is my all-time favorite teacher. He encourages me daily and never fails to make my class laugh.

7. What has been the highlight of your senior year?
The highlight of my senior year has been taking pictures of the school’s events and being a part of all the various activates. I get to see the excitement and joy on everyone’s face from behind the camera!

8. What is the best advice you’ve ever been given?
The best advice I was ever given was from my mom. She told to allow God to lead me in all areas and all time of my life, not just when it is coinvent for me to let God be in control.

9. If you could go back and change one thing, what would it be?
If I had the change to go back and change something, I would not want to change a thing. I have learned from all of the things I have gone through and they have given me opportunities for growing into the person I am today!

10. What advice would you give incoming freshmen?
I would tell an incoming freshman to talk to everyone and enjoy the differences in everyone around you. Don’t limit yourself and flock to the people who are just like you, you can learn so much from those you don’t necessarily have something in common with.
11. What are your plans after graduation?
After graduation, I plan to attend Mississippi College and peruse a degree in graphic design and marketing.
