John Baxter was Mr. High School. He was the best at everything he did, well, so he thought. He had one problem small problem that ruined everything.
John was very prideful and condescending. He thought that he was the best at anything he did. He thought that he was number one. No one really ever liked him. The homecoming elections were coming up soon. For his whole life, he wanted to be a part of the court.
It was then when his mother, Nina Baxter, began to notice his arrogance. Later that day when he returned home, his mother had a talk with him. She said that he was very prideful and he thought too high of himself. She said that he would never get anywhere in life being condescending. Being the person he was, he didn’t listen to her.
As it came closer and closer to the voting, Nina became extremely ill and passed away. John was heartbroken. He, however, still ignored his mother’s warning. He became even more condescending.
On voting day, only one person voted for him and that was himself. This experience opened up John’s eyes. He began to reflect on what his mother said to him before her death. He promised himself that he would never be condescending and to fulfill what his mother had said to him.
After the homecoming dance, he humbled himself more. He began making new friends and became well known around the school for being most humble person in the school.
