In the future, Hannah plans to go into agriculture, with an interest in ranching beef cattle, as well as working with veterans using horse therapy.





Arnaldo Espinoza, a soon to be graduating senior at Jamestown High School, is the eldest son of Uvaldo and Ana Espinoza. Arnaldo Espinoza has experience when it comes to playing the tuba, performing on stage, some singing here and there, and even some bits of dancing. To those lucky enough to have watched the JHS musical this year, known as Guys and Dolls, Arnaldo played two very important parts in the play. Throughout the play, he was a rough and tough Chicago gambler that no one messed with, and, at one point, he rocked the stage, with his dance partner, Corin Derby, down in Havana as a Havana dancer. It was his first year in the musical, and he had no idea how much fun it really was, and was glad to experience that with his newfound friends and colleagues.  Arnaldo is a diligent worker and aspires to try his best no matter what the challenge is, he certainly loves experiencing the tough obstacles his AP classes have put him through, such as chemistry, physics and calculus. After graduation, he plans to apply himself to aerospace engineering.
