JC Thaxton

JC Thaxton, Senior Staff Writer

JC Thaxton is a senior at Robinson and a Senior Staff Writer for Knight Writers. This is her second year on staff. 

Thaxton is one of the four captains on Robinson's softball team and she's been a captain since her sophomore year. Softball has been an integral part of her life, playing from a young age. She even went to the Junior Little League Softball World Series in summer of 2019, winning first place with her team.

"I like softball because it's what I've done since I was four. I just go out there and be myself and I grow while playing. It's very fun and when you're with the right people, it's a very exciting game," Thaxton said.

Outside of softball, Thaxton is a member of Knightmare, Key Club and Robinson National Honor Society. While major details aren't set in stone just yet, Thaxton is interested in the medical field and biology, hoping to study those in college.

Currently standing in the top ten students in Robinson traditional for class rank, Thaxton's hoping to maintain that position as well as her A's. She's currently balancing work, family, school and her social life and is very much proud of herself for how far she's come.

She's a doodler, leaving an art gallery for her fellow journalism students to see when they walk into Room 250. As a writer, her current favorite sections to write are opinions, sports and features.

"I like going to the class and seeing my friends and staff that I've bonded with through the years. Also, I really do like writing a story for as much as I struggle with getting a topic and/or getting it on time; seeing the final product feels so good," Thaxton said.

Heckmen holds Wittes hand as they play into the puppeteering routine for the number. He praises his scene partner, For the most part, I held Ingallss wrist and said do whatever feels natural and kind of moved my arms to seem like I was controlling her. So, in terms of puppet choreo, she gets all the credit there.
