Where are they now? Michael Prime (VUHS)
Hometown, current residence, age: I grew up in Addison, Panton and Bridport with my loving mother and father, Marc and Heidi Prime.
Family: I have three siblings: Alicia, Cody and my twin sister, Kimberly. They have all become very successful and have built beautiful families.
I want to give a very big thank you to my beautiful wife, Jacquelyn Prime, who our first year of marriage stuck by my side through a deployment to Afghanistan with all her love and support. I want to thank my children, Jocelyn and Jonathan, who have made a huge transition in their lives by uprooting all they have known and moving 2,000 miles south receiving a huge culture shock but adapting and making friends through the year. I am beyond proud of you and I love you both with all my heart. I am also so very pleased to announce the newest member of our family, Oakley Aaron Prime, who will be gracing us with his presence in July.
What I am up to: I am currently residing in Texas with my family serving in the U.S. Army. I will be ETS (expiration of term of service) in July to return home back to Vermont
Adults to whom I can attribute my current success: There are more people than I can count on one hand that have helped me along the way to where I am now. There is one man who I really want to say thank you to, and that is my father, Marc Prime, from giving me advice from prior military experience to tough love when needed and molding me into who I am today. Thank you, Dad, I love you.
My memories of high school: In high school it’s like any job or any other obstacle you will face in life — there will be great times and bad times that seem like they will never end but always remember nothing lasts forever! Transitioning from middle school to high school was a rough spot for me, you go from being a big fish in a little pond to a little fish in a big pond; it can be a tough time. Walk tall and carry a big stick and you will be just fine.
My advice for this year’s crop of graduating seniors: For all graduating seniors: Remain humble, all graves are six feet deep; be respectful to your parents and help them out once in a while, they took care of you for 18 years — return the favor. Your best years are yet to come so live slowly and stay true to who you are.
