The New Kid

The New Kid

By Riley Bratton

Most students who are about to enter their senior year of high school begin to focus on  where they are going to go to college. That was not the case for senior Connor Sapp.

Connor came to Delta this summer from North Carolina after his parents told him that they had decided to move. 

But this isn’t the first time Connor’s parents have given him similar news.

Connor was born in Ann Arbor, Mich., and lived there for the first seven years of his life. While in Michigan he attended Cornerstone Elementary School from Pre-K to first grade before he was told for the first time that he was moving .

“I was pretty shocked and nervous because I was going to have to leave my friends,” Connor said .

His family moved because his dad accepted the role of head men’s golf coach at the University of North Carolina. Connor then moved to Durham, N.C. While in Durham Connor attended Forest View Elementary School and Chapel Hill Middle School. 

But once again Connor’s parents told him that they were moving again after his dad accepted the head coaching position at the University of East Carolina, in Greenville, N.C

While in Greenville, Connor attended J.H. Rose High School from his freshman year to junior year.  

According to J.H. Rose’s school website, “All students must follow a dress code. All shirts must have collars, be one solid color, must not have words or graphics or photos, and all pants must be solid khaki, navy or black.”

Conner said Delta is “just a completely different culture compared to all of my old schools.”

 But once again he was given news that he all but despised. But this time felt a little different to Connor. Instead of having to move somewhere completely different like in the past, Connor was told that he would be moving to Muncie to be closer to family.

“I was pretty excited because almost all of my family is from the Muncie area, so being able to see them more than 1-2 times a year has been really nice,” he said.

Connor has two cousins who are currently attending Delta High School, sophomore Jake Bilby and senior Wyatt Bilby,

“I don’t think I could’ve done it,” Jake Bilby said. “It would have been weird especially if I would’ve moved schools right before my senior year. I think he has adapted very well here at Delta.”

Connor is planning on playing on the golf team this year.

After graduating from high school, Connor plans to attend Butler University in Indianapolis. He plans to study business and pursue a career in commercial real estate.

Connor might know a thing or two about real estate, since he’s moved so many times.
