Ernesto Barajas is the student of the week for Shoshoni High School. Ernesto stated this as his advice to give to younger students: “Take the time to hang out and go do things when you are still in school because real life will be a shock.”
His favorite school activity is woodshop class because he enjoys making resin projects. He thinks what makes his school special is that “the teachers are nice and most of them help you when you really need help in class.”
After high school, Ernesto plans to go to Casper College and specialize in CAT and Detroit mechanics.
Ernesto was nominated by Mrs. Mason and Mr. Pingetzer:
