“Don’t give up, don’t ever give up”. - Jimmy Valvano


Hugh Foster was born on September 27th 2001 in Los Angeles, California. He was raised in Portland with two younger brothers and is now a 17 year old senior at Prairie High School. Hugh’s favorite part about high school is, “the opportunity to expand my knowledge in all subjects”.

 He likes Prairie specifically because of the family atmosphere the students and staff create. Foster’s favorite subject in school is photography because it is very enjoyable for him and he has gotten very good at it over the years. He has turned this skill for photography and made it something extremely important to Prairie and all the coaches and teams by taking videos at summer workouts, tryouts, practices, jamborees and games. This has been something all of the sports team are honored to be apart of and makes him so special to this school. You can find his videos on his twitter: @hughfoster_24. His favorite teacher at prairie is Mrs. Alway because she finds fun and interactive ways to challenge her students. He joined journalism because Mrs. Alway thought it would be a good fit for him, and he believes it will help him later on in college. His goal, by the end of the school year, is to develop better interviewing skills and to find ways to make information easier to understand. After high school Hugh would like to continue his education at either Whitworth University, Lipscomb University, or Pepperdine. As of right now, he hopes to become a marketing director after college. 

Outside of school he likes to spend his time in the outdoors, specifically camping at Fort Stevens with friends and family. He also enjoys golfing and  he’s amazing at it. Golf competes during fall which is why it is his favorite season. He also enjoys winter, but only if Snows because otherwise it is just cold and rainy. He enjoys watching The Office and Parks and Rec and has seen both of them multiple times through. His favorite character on The Office is Kevin because he feels like he can relate to him the most. Foster is very involved in all sports, but his favorite team to watch is Gonzaga’s men’s basketball team because, “they are fundamentally sound year in and year out”. If not watching sports, golfing, or camping you may find him on his favorite app, Snapchat. Which he likes because he is able to stay in constant contact with all of his friends. Foster’s zodiac sign is a Libra, and even though he doesn’t believe in astrological signs he does fit a lot of the personality traits. He is a very kind, cooperative person who gives more than he takes. He has a love for the outdoors, and has a good head on his shoulders. He is so smart and he shows that everyday in knowledge for technology, video editing,and has an eye for greatness. He also is very book smart showing with good grades and taking advanced placement classes throughout his high school years.
