Freshman Matthew Sherwin is the Bear of the Week.

Emily Day, Writer

Freshman Matthew Sherwin is an active member of band, UIL Academics, Bear Believers, and his church youth group. Sherwin placed second in informative speaking at the district UIL meet and is the first freshman in school history advancing to Regionals in his event. 

Sherwin’s favorite hobbies include hanging out with friends, watching movies or YouTube, and his ideal way to spend a weekend is being surrounded by family and friends. His favorite genre of movie is science fiction and when he is older, he wants to be a movie director. If he had to give a 40-minute presentation over any topic without preparation, he would choose Star Wars and his favorite quote is “Do, or do not. There is no try,” by Yoda. 

Sherwin would love to master the skill of sword fighting and if money were not an issue, he would learn to fly and get his pilot’s license. His favorite band is Queen, and the best advice he has ever been given is to never judge anyone by their looks.
