Mojave High School is proud to nominate Joshua McFarling-Kelly as its 2019 Star Graduate. While at Mojave, Josh has participated in many activities during his four years, including baseball, tennis, JROTC and drama.
Josh described his experience at Mojave this way, “Within the past four years of attending Mojave High School, I’ve accomplished many things, such as participating in multiple sports and after-school academic activities. My freshmen year began with the path of unexpected leadership. Till this day, I will honor it. From that point on, I’ve created a reputation at Mojave that I truly believe will last forever. Ms. Sarah Sheppeck and Mr. John Campbell (the theatre advisors my freshmen year) allowed me to express myself in ways that have never wavered, and allowed others to appreciate my true character. Before high school, if you asked me what I was doing in class, I honestly couldn’t even tell you. I’m not perfect–trust me. I flunked seventh grade. And when I was held back, I barely passed the second time. When I say that Mojave and its staff improved my life, it clearly shows. I’ve won several awards, from the Rattler Award to being nominated Class of 2019’s Most School Spirited Male. But the biggest thing I accomplished are the friendships. I’ve learned how to approach people and make them feel welcomed.”
After graduation, Josh plans to attend the College of Southern Nevada, and wants to be an actor, film director and screenwriter.
