Full Name: John Kurt Degueyter

Grade you started at Ascension: Day one Baby

Favorite Teacher: Coach Whitt, he is one of the boys. Oh and he’s a really good teacher.

Favorite Ascension Memory: When Ann Louise Babineaux was gluing her shoe to the ground for fun and it got stuck. And coach Whitt wasn’t there so brooks changed Cameron’s contact name to dad and called him and Cameron just started screaming into the phone making Ann Louise cry.

Plans After high school: Join the Army National Guard and do ROTC while enrolled at UL while majoring in business management.

What is something most people do not know about you?

If I could be a cartoon character it would definitely be the almighty Shrek.

What is some advice you would give to underclassmen? It’s not cool to Juul, stay in school.

What is something you would change about Ascension?  Bring back Joey Walker.

Favorite quote and why?

Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.” -Matthews 10:34 I’ve always wanted to join the military since I was little so I feel as it reflects on what the military does.

What’s your favorite movie?

Shrek, the message Shrek gives really just brightens my day and shows me the righteous path to success.  

What’s on your bucket list this year? Have a boys trip on a houseboat in the ocean or a lake.

Just something else you’d like to say if ya want:  It’s been a great journey going through Ascension Episcopal School, but all good things must come to an end. I wanna thank my brothers for helping me through this quest to be the best.
