This weeks’ Just Junior features Jake Mercer. Jake has been going to BA ever since kindergarten. Before Kindergarten, though, he lived in Hollidaysburg.

Jake is a straight A student who has much pride in his work. In the future, Jake wants to go to college to be an English teacher.

For many years, Jake has been working at the local custard shop, The Meadows. You can find Jake here almost everyday of the week.

I love putting all I have into that store, day in and day out, for the Kulture. It really is a great place, with even better custard and people.

Outside of school, Jake likes to hang with his homies, listen to music, read, and sometimes directs short films.

When asked what his favorite class in school is and why, Jake says, “Current events becasue Mr. Rhone is a great teahcer. He is also funny.”

Lastly, the most interesting thing about Jake Mercer is that he has hyper hydrosis and his hands are always super sweaty.
