Nick Certeza

School: Eagle Valley High School

How many years in county: 12 years

Parent/s’ names: Dan and Elizabeth Certeza

OK, you’re 30: What have you done (college, job, kids etc.), where do you live and what do you do? Sweet, I’m 30. College: Lots of master’s degrees in two fields. Kids: hope not. Job: I’m a bartender/freelance journalist livin’ in Mexico.

What items might you put in a personal time capsule to open at your 20th high school reunion? Why those? Pictures of friends and hometown, a $2.50 gallon of gas with receipt-(see how much it appreciates!), big nasty toe nail, a list of uses for hemp printed, of course, on long-lasting-acid-free/tree-free hemp paper, a “Pokemon” card and a complete CD full of rockin’ music (from ACDC to ZZ Top).

Best high school memory: Skipping class and getting out of school with that overwhelming feeling of freedom!

Favorite teacher and why: Chuck Vogel Ph.D. I will miss the days filled with long, torturous but fascinating lectures, where I gained some actual knowledge in seven years of secondary education.
