Around the Horn with Central Catholic scholar-athlete Simon Serrano

(Continued)

Is it cool to be smart? “Definitely. Absolutely. As long as you’re not bragging. You’re working hard. There is nothing not cool about working hard.”

What’s something people don’t know about you? “I’m half Ecuadorian.”

Where do you live? “Wilmington.”

Not too many Wilmington kids go to Central. How did you end up there? “I went to middle school at St. Augustine’s in Andover. My brother went to Central and I just followed him.”

Who is your inspiration? “My family, they all are very hard workers. I follow their lead.”

Are you from an academically-oriented family? “My brother, Sebastian, was valedictorian at Central. He’s graduating from Maryland in a month or two. He’ll be going to grad school at Maryland, too.”

What’s your dream job? “Something in applied mathematics. I’m definitely headed down the analytical way with math.”

What is your pet peeve? “People being impatient.”

Do you have any pets? “A dog, Jackson, a collie-beagle mix.”

If you were named principal, what’s the first thing you’d do? “No school on Mondays.”
