Just like that, second semester is underway at “THE” Cascade High School. For seniors, this is a bittersweet time that involves many lasts and many goodbyes. For one senior, a farewell is coming very soon.
Evan Burch has been an active member of the Mill Creek community throughout his entire life. He has been in the district since preschool and attended Mill Creek West Elementary. He is well known throughout the halls for his humor and athletic abilities.
According to Evan’s cousin, and teammate Alec Alderson, “He’s fun, outgoing, a hard worker, goofy and a gamer.”
Burch’s hobbies include playing basketball and video games. His favorite video game is Call of Duty because he has become skilled at the game and gets paid to play competitively.
Basketball has always been a huge part of Evan’s life and he plans to continue playing at the collegiate level after graduation. His favorite memory in high school was playing in and winning the Covington tournament.
“Evan Burch has been a four-year varsity player and starter. He brings leadership and experience to the team. He has had the opportunity to play more of a shooting guard this year than the past few. He is a deadly three-point shooter with the skills to attack and finish around the rim or throw an assist to a teammate. Cascade does not always have a player like Evan,” says head basketball coach, Chris Dubois.
The senior is excited to finish out the semester because he believes this is the part of high school where things are going to be easier. He intends to keep up with his grades of As and Bs in order to pursue a career as an engineer.
Throughout high school, Evan really enjoyed taking nutrition and wellness with Ms. Ford and also discovered that Mr. Hagenow is one teacher who has impacted him forever.
Burch hopes that freshmen know that their GPA and transcripts start as soon as high school starts and maybe even before.
“Do good your freshman year,” says Burch.
