Fleming has his memories to look back on

Fleming has his memories to look back on

Marcus Fleming has been going to Armijo High School since he was a freshman. He currently plays basketball at Armijo and he is planning to play baseball in the Spring.

One of his favorite memories is from a recent basketball game. “It would be a great memory if we had beaten them,” he said, “and when I was in a wheelchair, I mean it was a funny memory when I look back at it but it wasn’t really a cool thing, and my recent memory was over Thanksgiving break when Leadership had a Friendsgiving. That was… cool.”

Another memory that he will take with him is when he was elected Homecoming Prince at the game against Rodriguez. “That was a big… crowd. Even though we lost the game, it was pretty good.”

Leaving the comfort of Armijo is going to have an effect on Fleming. “I honestly just like the people,” he said. “There’s no vibe like Armijo. It’s so diverse. You go to a different side of campus and you see so many things.”

While he plans to graduate in June and move on to college in the fall, he’s doesn’t really know where yet. There are still a lot of decisions to be made and he encourages juniors to start making those decisions. Make the senior year last, he said, and “appreciate every moment you have because that senior year stuff will sneak up on you so fast.”

In talking about his own senior year, Fleming said, “I thought it was going to be chill. I thought I was going come to school two or three days a week, maybe three classes. Now it is stressful, I only have one year left. On one side, you’re trying to make your senior year last, and on the other side, you have to figure out what you want to do for the rest of your life. That’s crazy!”

Fleming said that he does not feel ready to graduate yet but June is just a few months away.
