Mitchell hopes to attend pharmacy school

Editor’s Note: Franklin’s Future is a regular feature spotlighting a high school senior in Franklin County and what they have planned for life after graduation.

The days of wearing black and gold at Russellville High school are now only a memory for class of 2010 graduate Trevor Mitchell as he steps into the start of his first college semester.

A school ended in the spring, Mitchell, 18, had not made a definite decision whether or not he would begin his college career at Northwest-Shoals Community College or the University of North Alabama, but one thing is for sure he will be transferring to the campus of Auburn University.

Mitchell is an avid Auburn fan, but has also realized it has one of the premiere pharmaceutical schools in the country, which is exactly what Mitchell wants to study as he attends college.

“The money you can make as a pharmacist is pretty much what intrigued me about the career,” Mitchell said. “Auburn has one of the best pharmacy schools and if I attend there I won’t have to pay any out-of-state tuition.”

Mitchell said he knows how tuition rates can increase on students and he admits to being cautious about the money aspect of education.

Mitchell hopes to be in college no more than eight years to get his degree, then he wants to open up his own pharmacy.

“I’d like to start my own pharmacy once I get out of college,” he said. “Whether it will be here or not I don’t know. It seems like the Lanes have this area pretty much in the bag.”

Mitchell said he sees himself settling down out in the country later in life, while acquiring a wife and a child and maybe even having a cow or two roaming around in a pasture.

Mitchell said his perfect day would consist of sleeping late, hanging out with friends, fishing, hunting and “just taking the guns and shooting stuff.”

Mitchell said trap shooting is one of the things he enjoys in life.

He said he has even been a part of a trap shooting team, which went to Illinois and won the national trap-shooting trophy.

If Mitchell could go anywhere in the world he would head north to Alaska because of a law that says you can carry a gun on you at all times.

“I think I’d like Alaska,” he said. “There it would be daylight for months and dark for months and if I’m not mistaken you can carry a pistol on your belt no matter where you go. I think that would be pretty cool.”

Mitchell said sky surfing tops his list on things to do before he dies and the biggest thing he will miss about not going to RHS this coming school year is the tradition.

“There is a lot of tradition at Russellville High and I just enjoyed being a part of it all,” he said. “If I could change one thing about RHS it would be to convince people to stay out of other people’s business. I hate high school drama.”

Mitchell said he would possibly attend a few RHS football games this coming season, but is glad to move on, get his schooling all done and settle down somewhere.

Mitchell serves as the last 2010 graduate in this series.

The Franklin County Times has enjoyed covering the future plans of those who graduated this past year and will break into the Class of 2011 beginning near the end of this school year and into next summer.
