The New Voice of ACP: Bridge Bach

At the beginning of each school year, ACP students and staff listen to a variety of candidates for the position of “Voice of ACP” and vote on their favorite. The Voice of ACP is typically a senior student who delivers ACP’s daily announcements for the entirety of the year. After alumnus Jared Riley’s graduation last year, the hunt for his successor has come to a close with senior Bridge Bach receiving the most votes. Here’s what Bridge had to say about his most recent victory:

Q: How did you prepare for the voice of ACP?

A: I’ve always wanted to be the voice of ACP, even as a freshman, so when the opportunity came around, I was more than ready. Plus, years of heckling the administration in the halls and learning how to get a laugh out of the school really helped.

Q: What’s it like announcing to the entire school?

A: It’s incredibly nerve wracking! Not because I’m afraid people won’t like it, but because I’m pretty sure one of these days I’m going to say something that gets me suspended.

Q: Have you picked out a catch phrase yet? If so, what is it?

A: I haven’t picked up a catchphrase yet, but I’m definitely open to suggestions. I’ve always been rather formal with my greetings and farewells, so a nice “good day” seems great.

Q: How did you feel finding out you won?

A: Quite frankly, I was surprised. I thought Sebastian Javadpoor had done a better job and Noah Craft had the senior vote. But, I was happy to know that I had achieved this goal and finally become the voice of ACP.

Q: Did you celebrate? If so, how?

A: Yes, I celebrate every weekday by doing the announcements.

Q: Would you do the announcements in a different accent each day if we dared you to? Can you do any accents? If so, which are your favorite?

A: I would certainly try. I speak naturally in a monotonous voice, but if I was dared to, absolutely. I guess I can do a country accent pretty well and a British accent too, but I don’t have a favorite. I’m always open to suggestions, so just let me know what you want to hear.

Thank you, Bridge, for taking the time to give us a little insight into your newest achievement, and congratulations! On the behalf of the newspaper staff, we challenge you to do a British accent during the daily announcements for a week, starting Monday, November 16th until Friday, November 20th. Good luck!
