Alex Charles Blacklock is 16 years old, and is in 11th grade at Urbana High school. He has a twin brother and two dogs. An interesting fact about his family is that his father was born and raised in Australia. His favorite class he’s ever taken was Technology Education in 8th Grade, because of how relaxed the class was, however, he was most interested in AP US history in 9th grade. His favorite teacher is Mr. Hontz who taught him AP United States history in 9th grade. Alex enjoyed his class because he could lecture for the entire class and still make it engaging and fun for the students, and he was very knowledgeable about the history of the United States. Alex ran cross country and wrestled in his first two years of high school, but is now focusing more on wrestling and has since dropped cross country. After high school, Alex plans to either go to college, or join the marines. Alex aspires to start his own hedge fund and become successful in the investments field. If Alex could choose one place in which he had to live for the rest of his life, he would choose to live in New York City, so that he could work on Wall Street and further his career. Alex is very interested in politics and world affairs and would like to be very involved in these topics as an adult. He is excited to start his experience at the Urbana High School Hawkeye newspaper for the next two years, and is apprehensive for graduation.
