Five Minutes with Jack Douglass
KN: Hey Jack!
KN: When did you first come to Pace?
JD: In third grade.
KN: How does it feel to be the fastest boy on the Pace cross country team?
JD: It’s definitely a big accomplishment, but my teammates push me each and every day. I couldn’t have done it without my teammates. They push me to be my best and I’m very appreciative for that.
KN: Would you say that they’re your motivation to be the best that you can be?
JD: Yes, definitely. Like our varsity team, we’re all very competitive, but we are also really good friends, so it’s really good to push each other.
KN: What other sports do you play?
JD: Basketball and track.
KN: Which is your favorite of the three?
JD: Cross country and basketball – they’re tied.
KN: Which one do you think you’re better at?
JD: Definitely cross country.
KN: How long were you a member of student council?
JD: I was a member of student council in third grade, and then I did it in eighth and ninth grade as well, so I’ve done it for three years total.
KN: Were you disappointed with the loss last year?
JD: I was a little disappointed at the beginning, but it was just another chance for me to try out something new, so I got involved with the student ambassador program and I really like it so far.
KN: What has the ambassador program been like for you so far?
JD: I really like it because it’s kind of nice being able to show my school, where I go every day. It’s pretty cool.
KN: What is it like to be on the yearbook staff?
JD: An honor. (chuckles)
KN: How is it being one of two boys?
JD: It’s fine, it’s a little bit different of a class setting because I’m used to having, like, a bunch of friends in my class so that’s a little different. But I get a lot of work done and it’s very easy to focus, because there aren’t as many kids my age.
KN: Do you and David have to support each other?
JD: Oh yes, we do.
KN: Do you feel like you are ‘whipped’ by the upperclassmen girls?
KN: Who is your best friend?
JD: I can’t really answer that.
KN: What is your least favorite class that you have taken so far at Pace?
JD: No comment.
KN: What happened to you and Molly Shapiro?
JD: The break up was mutual. We thought it was time.
KN: How long were you two dating before the break up?
JD: Three years.
KN: What is your goal in life?
JD: I would like to work on Wall Street. That’s probably my dream job.
KN: Do you have any idea where you want to go to college?
JD: I would say out West.
KN: What is your favorite Coke product?
KN: If you could eat one food for the rest of your life what would it be?
JD: Sushi – Umi Sushi.
KN: D0 you have a favorite roll?
JD: The rainbow roll.
KN: What is your most embarrassing moment?
JD: We were rhyming words with bucket in third grade with Ms. Novy and we were just going through the alphabet and I yelled out “F*** it.”
KN: Do you have a ‘dirty little secret?’
JD: No, what does that even mean?
