"Take Five" is a West Milford Messenger series of interviews with West Milford students. Each student highlighted is asked five questions. Today's Take Five student:

Name: Cindy Cintron

Age: 16

School/Grade: West Milford High School

Activity/Club/Sport: Marching Band

1. How did you get involved with your activity?I was always interested in the marching band once I saw the bagpipes in elementary school but the excitement and fun energy shown at Macopin Band day ( the marching band’s “recruitment” night)really pushed me to do it.

2. Who is your biggest inspiration?My biggest inspiration would be Becca Kronyak. She graduated two years ago and was the drum major of our band. She took me under her wing and she always made sure everyone was on task as well as having fun. She is the leader I aspire to be like.

3. Who is your favorite teacher of all time? Why?My favorite teacher of all time would be Ms. Kaiser because in the two years I had her class I learned an immense amount about cooking and I gained not only a mentor but someone I could consider my best friend. She supported me in all my endeavors and was right by my side to cheer me on with everything I did.

4. Share a favorite moment with your group/club/team.One of my favorite moments with the marching band was when we were awaiting the results for the Yamaha Cup competition and we knew we had won just from how amazing the performance felt. Everyone was hugging, screaming, and jumping up and down right after we got off the field. I had never seen so many big smiles.

5. What does being a Highlander mean to you?Being a Highlander, to me, means being proud of yourself and working hard to achieve your goals.

What do you do with your time, when you are not doing your activity?When I’m not marching band, I’m almost always studying, practicing, or with my friends at youth group.

Bonus question: What is your favorite movie, book or character? Why?My favorite movie/ book is "The Great Gatsby" because the jazz age seems amazing but the movie and book portray the beauty and the ugliness of the time, and I strongly believe it’s important to know about both.
