There isn’t a more well-known student in the Wethersfield High School community than Xavier White. He has established himself as the joke king for our student-produced Blue Eagle News. He can be seen in practically every episode, telling his jokes to the audiences watching that day.
For those that don’t know Xavier, he is very active in the school community. Although he is more recognizable from his joke-telling, he is a part of the school’s cross country and outdoor track teams. He is also very kind. If you pass him while walking through the hallway, he will be determined to either say hello or ask you how your day is going, no matter the time.
Xavier’s interest in telling jokes originated from watching his favorite show called “Loud House.” He heard a joke from one of the characters, Luan, that made him laugh. He was then inspired to make other people laugh the same way he did, through a joke.
One day, Xavier was telling a joke to one of his friends, the friend liked it, and convinced him to tell the joke to the producer of Blue Eagle News, Ms. Coco. She liked the joke, Xavier got to tell it for that episode, and the rest is history.
When I asked Xavier why he continues to tell his jokes he said, ”I tell them to make people happy. I really like to make my friends and family smile.”
