Seth Henry finishes school strong, looks to future
It’s a good thing to be Seth Henry. As a 17-year-old senior this year at Lafayette High School, he has all his bases covered.
First there is the time he devotes to the Mighty Lions football team. Being all-district in wrestling gets a few hours each week.
And with a 3.5 GPA average in the gifted program, he still manages to make time for a pickup game of basketball with his friends too. Seth is busy.
But even with his hectic schedule, he is still thinking of tomorrow. With a few months left to decide on a major, he has narrowed the field to two.
He would like to pursue a degree in kinesiology from ULL focusing on sports therapy. Or, he may pursue a political science degree from LSU with the goal of going to law school (either political or entertainment law).
Law school hasn’t always been on his agenda. Seth recently returned from a week of intense training with Louisiana Boys State. Not only a program centered around leadership skills, LABS shows young men their potential through action.
Competing with other boys his own age, his district elected him district judge. After debating with seven others, he was then elected secretary of state. This has piqued his interest in politics.
Whatever direction this academic athlete goes, he knows that hard work and determination keep leading him to success. This is one bright kid with a very hopeful future, and he will represent the 337 well.
