After participating in the Batesville Middle School choir in sixth and seventh grades, he is still working on his singing voice. “You just have to have confidence in yourself.” The student practices music “every chance I get. It’s a good stress reliever.”
Prunty, who turns 18 Aug. 30, is already signed up to vote. He looks forward to seeing Hawthorne Heights (please see related article) perform at Bogart’s, Cincinnati, Oct. 8 as part of the Scream it Like you Mean it Tour. When asked about pastimes, the teen reports, “I like doing a lot of things with video” and taking nature photos.
A year from now he will be in college, perhaps at the University of Cincinnati, majoring in business and electronic media (video and sound production).
Music will remain an ambition. “It’s a lot of fun whether it’s a more serious band setting, or myself and a few friends playing. It’s a good thing to have in your life.”
