LINCOLNTON, N.C.––He’s going the distance.

He’s Mason Hodges. And according to school spokeswoman Pamela Black of North Lincoln High, this senior, known for his athletic prowess as a runner, is among the top 10 in the class of 2019.

Hodges, who turns 18 on June 1, told The Herald more about himself Friday.

“My family moved to Lincolnton the summer before my kindergarten year,” he said, “and that’s where I have spent the rest of my childhood.”

The son of Kevin and Lori Hodges, he is also the brother of Kolton Hodges.

Mason Hodges spoke more about his time at NLHS.

“My favorite two classes at North Lincoln have been AP (advanced-placement) government and politics with Mr. Adam Fier,” he said, “and AP physics I with Mr. Alex Pederson.”

Hodges is quite the athlete.

“I spent my high school career on the cross-country and track teams,” he said, “and as the treasurer for the Habitat for Humanity club. One memory that vaguely stands out in my head is running in the 2017 cross-country state championship that my team and I were fortunate enough to win.”

Come August, Hodges will be off to North Carolina State University. He plans to study civil engineering.

“I hope to obtain a job with Duke Energy when I graduate,” he said.

And Hodges spoke further about his fellow members in the class of ’19.

“The class of 2019 is a group of extremely dedicated students who plan to use their talents for the betterment of society,” he said. “High school has been the best four years of my life, and I would advise anyone who is entering the high school atmosphere to look past the stress of assignments, projects or tests and enjoy their time in high school. I had to always remind myself to look at the bigger picture and to not sweat the small things.”
