Lane Hagar is the first to admit that he’s not the best at everything.

“But I try,” he said.

His teacher, Kelly Ann Kirk, said Hagar doesn’t always get a lot of recognition for being such a good kid because he’s always such a good kid.

“His bar is always set high,” she said. “I love his behavior in class. He tries hard and is always willing to think about something challenging.”

Hagar enjoys school because it gives him the opportunity learn.

“I try to learn from people’s mistakes and learn from what they do right,” he said.

Science and math are his favorite subjects, though math is the clear winner.

“Last year, I helped my teacher out a lot,” he said.

Hagar is an advocate for year-round school because he said the school year gets to be too long.

“You get a big break in the summer, and you forget everything, and then you go to school for so long that you get tired by the end of the year,” he said.

Hagar plays football and hockey. This is his third year playing football. He’s played center, defensive tackle and nose guard.

Nose guard is his favorite.

He’s only been skating for a year, “but I’m getting a lot better,” he said.

In what little spare time he has, Hagar works with his father building a club house that’s an exact replica of their house. It’s an activity Hagar enjoys.

Hagar thinks that to be a good friend, people have to trust you, and you have to be nice to them.

He’s both.

“I’ve got a lot of friends,” he said. “I know just about everybody.”

He also likes to ride four-wheelers, go for bike rides and play video games.

Kirk would call Hagar mature and affable.

He would disagree a little with the second. He said he likes to argue and figures he can make a lot of money doing so when he uses the skill to become a lawyer.

Kirk said Hagar has a good sense of humor, but isn’t a clown about it.

“He’s helpful,” she said. “He helps students with grace and not in a patronizing way.”
