Holbrook receives high honors
Nathan Holbrook, son of Larry Holbrook and grandson of Wanda Holbrook of Holly Springs, is the valedictorian of West Union’s 2008 graduating class. Nathan plans to attend Mississippi State University in the fall and study physics and electrical engineering.
Nathan is at the top of the 2008 graduating class with a 4.0 GPA.
At West Union, he participated in the Beta Club, received various subject area awards, and earned perfect scores on both the biology and U.S. History state tests. He was also a member of the homecoming court and voted Most Intellectual of his graduating class.
In his spare time, Nathan enjoys playing the acoustic and electric guitars, harmonica and keyboard.
He gives this advice to younger students, “Actually do the work. People don’t do well because they don’t try, not because they cannot do the work.”
