How my friends saw me was much differently than how I saw myself. A great example was our Dawson Springs High School Senioritis book. I was considered “Most Talented.”
“Mark Adams, the artist of the class, will always be remembered for his devotion to his artwork and his great personality. Mark is always willing to lend a helping hand and an understanding shoulder to lean on in times of need. Even if he doesn’t completely understand or agree, he will listen and offer words of advice. As you can see, Mark has many friends, but the majority of his time is spent with his girlfriend.
On Saturday nights, they are often found in Madisonville watching a movie or cruising the mall in Mark’s “Silver Bullet.” Mark not only excels at his artwork, but he also does well in school. He has been a member of the Beta Club throughout high school. He is currently ranked eighth in the senior class and is also on the honor roll.
During his spare time, besides painting and drawing, Mark enjoys lifting weights, horseback riding, swimming, and watching late night TV. Among Mark’s many achievements, his most challenging was the three weeks during the summer of 1988 when he attended the Governor’s School for the Arts. This year Mark put his skills to use by winning first place in a national postcard contest. His paintings are often displayed at the Dawson Springs Museum and Art Center.
Mark plans to attend Murray State University and major in Commercial Art. Maybe someday his dream will come true, and he will work at Walt Disney in Florida. The Class of ’89 has faith in his dreams to become a famous artist; therefore, we elected him as “Most Talented” in the Seniors’ Who’s Who. We hope that Mark will never forget us when he’s at the top, because we know that we’ll never forget him!”
