Nathan Turner, 18School: Waynesfield-Goshen High SchoolRole: Future vetParents: Todd and Regina TurnerNathan Turner, a senior at Waynesfield-Goshen High School, is in the middle of football season right now. He plays as a running back and a linebacker and has played since third grade. “I like the physical contact, the team unity, and that it builds character,” said the 18 year old. Turner has also run track for the past five years and plans to do so again this year. “I do the sprints,” he said. “That keeps me in shape for football, and we have a winning tradition in track. I really like that.”While athletics plays a big part in Turner’s life, academics are important too. “Math is my favorite subject because I just get it,” he said. “It comes naturally to me. It helps that our teacher makes it really interesting, too.”In addition to math, football and track, Turner is also involved in several organizations in school. He belongs to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the Future Farmers of America and is a National Honors Student. He is also involved in 4-H showing steers. As graduation approaches this year, Turner is looking at his future. He knows that he would like to be in the medical field in some fashion. “I’d like to either get a degree in physical therapy because I’d like to be able to help people,” he said, “or I’d like to become a veterinarian because I really like animals a lot.”However, Turner knows that becoming a veterinarian would involve about 10 years of schooling, but he does have his school preferences narrowed down. “I’d like to go to either OSU or Findlay University,” he said, “because they both have great vet programs.”
