Media specialist Melissa Glavas first met Aaron Hale when he began using the Media Center’s recording studio. “The room is not completely soundproof, so I've been able to hear the amazing music he has been composing,” she said. “But it's not just Aaron’s talent that shines. He's been so generous with his time in the studio. He's helped many students get started with the equipment and acted as a producer for others. I'm grateful for Aaron’s kindness in helping to make our new recording studio accessible to so many of his peers.”
Aaron’s time in the recording studio reflects his future goals: a career in music business! He plans to attend Normandale Community College to complete his generals before transferring to USC to continue his education. His dream job is to become a music artist and producer.
While he would love for his music career to be successful, Aaron hopes to continue volunteering with organizations like VEAP and build community, no matter where he is in life.
“I love making music, but I also just enjoy having conversations with people and spending time with my family,” he said. “I also have smaller hobbies such as researching how to produce videos, and occasionally looking at foreign language lessons.”
His favorite class this year was Physics with Dr. Kersten, “because unlike a lot of my other classes, I had freedom over my workflow,” he explained. “I was able to talk to other people, and I met some of the most unforgettable people in that class in both semesters! I'll never forget the memories I made in that class.”
During his time at RHS, Aaron was a part of Me to We, the Green Team and Jazz Band. His favorite thing about school is “the ability to communicate and build relationships with others! While it may not always work out with another person, having people outside of your family is just as important as having family.”
Aaron’s family is something he appreciates, as well. “I love my family very much, and they've always supported me and told me they're proud of me. My extended family has also always supported me no matter what. I love each and every one of them so much! I will always appreciate the joy that comes with them.”
What is his advice for freshmen? “Stay away from drama, don't let your ego get the best of you, listen to others, think before you speak, learn how to respect others even if you don't personally agree with them, stand up for a cause if there's a serious issue, and stay within the school spirit!”
