Senior Spotlight: Xander Ross

On October 1, 2005, in Norfolk Nebraska, Heather Knerr and Jim Magsamen welcomed Xander Taylor Ross to their family. 

Xander has five younger brothers and sisters to conclude his family. He has 3 younger sisters and 2 younger brothers: Amaiya, 16, Ariyah, 14, Xavier, 13, Adam, 11, and Alexia, 7. 

Xander’s grandparents are Michelle and John Mrsny of Norfolk.

Throughout Xander’s high school career, he has been involved in One-Act for four years, and Golf and football for one year. 

Xander’s favorite class in school is Lifetime Activities.  His favorite song is “Hey Driver” by Zach Bryan, and his favorite sports’ team is the New England Patriots. 

His biggest pet peeve are people who lie or steal.

Outside of school you can find Xander working at Just Another Mini Mart. 

After graduating high school, Xander plans to attend Northeast and complete their Welding program. In the future, Xander sees himself as a welder.  

If Xander won the lottery, he says he would half of it will go to families in need and the other half would go to family and friends. 

If Xander could travel anywhere in the world, he would travel to Florida because it looks really beautiful there. 

On Xander’s bucket list he says he hopes to become a welder, and learn to get over his fear of heights. 

His advice to the underclassmen is “Listen to your teachers, they are there to help you.”

We wish Xander the best of luck in his future endeavors!
