A passion for music, CHS valedictorian to attend Baylor

One word comes to the forefront for Brady Watson, when it comes to thinking about high school: music. Whether it be band or choir, Cuero High School’s class of 2020 valedictorian certainly has a passion for music, which became clear over the last several years. He now looks to turn that joy into a career, starting with a college education at Baylor University.
Before becoming a Baylor Bear, though, Watson and his classmates have had an unorthodox conclusion to their high school years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The thing is that as a class, we don’t really know what we’re missing, because we have never been seniors before, and we never will be again,” Watson stated. “We’re just kind of missing out on stuff we don’t really know we’re missing out on.”
Not only have they missed the final two months of school, but prom and graduation will not be the same for this year’s graduates.
“It’s definitely pretty upsetting, not just for me, but for everybody,” Watson said. “Prom’s gone. We’re still having it at Schroeder, but it’s not normal. Graduation, we still don’t even know if that’s going to happen. It’s set for the 5th [of June], but who knows? Even then, it’ll be limited. It’s pretty upsetting and disappointing for everybody.”
Despite this unfortunate ending to high school, music has always been there for Watson. His love for music was made apparent by the face mask he had on when discussing his time in high school.
