Activities: Student Council, Future Teachers of America, SADD, Media Center Intern, Interact Club, Spanish Club, Student Forum, Cross Country Captain, Raiderette Captain, Dance Captain for this year’s musical and a dancer at Lanzi Academy of Dance. I am also a member of the swine and lamb 4-H clubs & have been a Class Officer for 4 years.

Future Plans: I will be attending Western Carolina University where I plan to major in Elementary Education.

Fun Fact: I am following in the footsteps of my siblings and also attending an out-of-state university.

Favorite Quote: “Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life.”

Advice to upcoming Seniors: Try to attend every school event that interests you and don’t take anything for granted.

Thoughts on senior year ending so abruptly: Although it is upsetting, I am grateful that I was able to complete most of my senior year. I’m hoping to have an in person graduation so I can see my teachers and friends before I begin the next chapter of my life.

Mom & Dad: Thank you both for the endless amount of support you have given me through all of my activities. Because of you, I have become the best version of myself and feel more than ready to start the next chapter of my life.

Austin & Alexis: I can’t believe that it is now my turn to fill your shoes and become enrolled into college myself. Your advice and support has meant the world to me and you both have set great examples of how to succeed in college with ease.

My coaches & teachers: Thank you all for providing years of instruction and encouragement. I plan to use all I’ve learned in my future endeavors. You have made these past few years more than memorable.
