Senior Spotlight: Skyler Proctor


Cooper Ams, Co-Editor

This week’s Senior Spotlight is on the always reliable Skyler Proctor. Ever since joining the RMA family in his third grade year, Skyler has become a key part of the senior class. Skyler’s light-hearted attitude is present whenever he walks into any room. 


Skyler’s list of classes this year contain courses that are challenging, pushing Skyler to be the best student that he can be. This year, he is taking English 12, Weightlifting, Sports Medicine, Advanced Functions and Models, Ecology, and Ceramics. His success in these challenging classes is a testament to his strength as a student and his dedication to being the best student that he can be. 


Skyler excels not only in, but outside of the classroom as well. Skyler is a part of the Varsity Football and Varsity Baseball teams. Being on the baseball team with Skyler for the past couple of years, I can personally say that his desire to win and succeed is unmatched, making him a leader on and off the field. 


Outside of school, Skyler is an active member in his community. He is a member of the Red Oak Volunteer Fire Department and works at Rusty’s Backhoe Services. He is also a member of 2 Nash County 4-H Clubs. 

Sadly, Skyler will be leaving the RMA family after this year, moving on to attend Nash Community College, where he will be in the Fire Academy. Although we will miss Skyler, we all wish him the best of luck in college and hope to see him around next year!
