Senior Gage Brown is a senior who is a part of National Honor Society, and he’s had all A’s for
all his years in high school. He also earned 1st place in TSA regionals and 3rd place in the TSA State competition. For these and many reasons, Gage is the March student of the month.
“I’m most proud of my time in junior year,” Gage said. “Ever since my friend and I got 3rd place in the TSA state tournament, I’ve felt that that was my high school peak.”
Gage says that his friend Jose Vazquez, his TSA partner, helped influence him the most.
“If he didn’t ask me if we could make a game for TSA, I don’t think I’d be going the same route in life as I am now,” Gage said.
Gage is very honored to be the student of the month.
“I have always made sure to have a positive attitude and to have a humble time with others,” he said. “When I’m not shy, I try to at least say hi.”
Mr. Carlisle has influenced Gage the most at KHS.
“He managed to help me get more into history, more than I thought I’d ever be,” Gage said.
One of his best friends is Osvaldo Martinez.
“I’ll never forget the time I spent with the buddies in middle school, and he was the one I spent the most time with,” Gage said.
Gage has been doing TSA for two years, and he’s made lots of memories. He says that TSA ise his favorite school activity.
“My group would spend 1-2 periods coding and 3D modeling,” Gage said. “I have been the one
to work on game mechanics in both years, and I haven’t slowed down.”
He says that the class he’s learned the most in is Game Design.
“I’ve learned how to manage work on a schedule, and I’ve learned about time crunch,” he said. “I’ve probably learned more on math and logic in Unreal Engine than any math class I took.”
He believes that Game Design is the class he’ll miss the most when he graduates. He’s made lots of fun memories.
“One of my favorite memories was with my process of designing the main character this year,” Gage said. “I showed Jose the sketch and he went to work.”
Outside of school, Gage likes to hang out with his friends, play video games and occasionally draw.
After graduation he plans to attend Kilgore College for two years and then transfer to Letourneau University for two years.
“I want to become a video game designer. I like making games,” Gage said.
He sees himself in ten years either working at a AAA company, or as an Indie developer. After graduation, he sometimes fears failing in his career.
“I want my future work to be known far and wide, so failing at my future career would be horrible,”Gage said.
During his years at high school he’s faced challenges.
“My biggest challenge was keeping up my high grades,”
he said. “I did most of the hard work early, and now I’m cruising through senior year.”
If Gage could sit down and talk to anyone, dead or alive, he’d want to talk to Albert Einstein.
