Student in the Spotlight: Carson Stout
Carson Stout, a LaCrosse High School sophomore, is a chill dude with a passion for fashionable jackets and a finely-honed sense of humor. He has got the sickest kickflips this side of the Mississippi, dankest memes, and more than 1,000 muscles. Carson considers his finest joke to be the classic “magic owl” bit, which is much better told in person than through text. You will have to ask him about it.
