The Livingston-Tangipahoa Advocate’s Spotlight Classroom is Jessica Puissegur’s third-grade class at Springfield Elementary School. The students were asked:

  • If you could grow up to be famous, what would you want to be famous for and why?
  • HANNAH BEDDINGFIELD: “I would want to be famous for inventing a helicopter car because some people don’t have money to fly places.”
  • DEQUANE DAVIS: “I would want to be famous for inventing a flying car because it could be really fun to fly in the car without putting gas in it. People would save a lot of money.”
  • JAKE DEPAULA: “In football, you get a lot of money. I can be like Leonard Fournette. I am going to play for LSU in college and then play for the Saints in the NFL.”
  • PHOENIX DIXON: “I would build the first flying shoe because if you were in New York and it was crowded, you could go wherever you wanted to with the flying shoe.”
  • ELISE FISCHER: “I would choose to be famous for being the best basketball player in history by shooting 10 hoops each game. That would be awesome!”
  • DALTON FURCA: “I picked to stop bullying because people are getting hurt by bullying. They will be safe if it stops. This way, no one will be hurt.”
  • ROWEN HARRIS: “I would want to be famous for football. I chose this reason to be famous because I want to be like Leonard Fournette. You also get a lot of money.”
  • NEJEAN HODGES: “I would want to be famous for playing in the NFL. I chose this reason because I want to encourage other kids and have them say, ‘Hey, I want to be like him!’ ”
  • KEELY JONES: “It would be for making clothes for people that don’t have any. Some people don’t have any clothes. I can give clothes away for free.”
  • CARSON LEXIA: “I would want to be famous for the $5 billion bill. I chose this because I could be rich. People would like me, and I could help them by sharing my money with those who don’t have any.”
  • MCKENZI SCHENK: “I would choose to be famous by playing on a soccer team because it is my favorite sport.”
  • GARRETT SHARP: “I would choose to be famous for singing. I like singing because it is fun. You get things when you sing in front of people.”
  • BROOKLIN STOETZNER: “I would want to be famous for helping the sick people and children. I would help people who are sick all over the world so they can be better soon.”
  • KAYDENCE THREETON: “I would be famous for inventing a teleporter because some people don’t have money to go anywhere. You can go to any state, planet or anywhere you like.”
  • MARY WHITE: “I would be famous for curing a disease like cancer because when I help people it makes me feel good. When I grow up, I want to be a doctor, so maybe I can live up to that.”
