School Activities and Awards: Key Club, Business Professionals of America, SADD, Class Treasurer, Youth Mentor, Science Club, Honor Roll, Prom Committee, Classroom Assistant and Compass Award
If I were principal for a day: I would have all the students learn about what they’ve always wanted to learn about. Skip out on the language arts and math to learn about the real world for a day.
Favorite High School Memory: My favorite memory was when the seniors got our time capsules back from 8th grade. I was cool to see how far I’ve come along and how my plans have changed.
People who have been an inspiration to me include: My parents, Roseann Reed, Mrs. Coburn and Mr. Steinbarger
Lately I’ve been reading: newspapers and journalism articles
My advice to parents: My advice is to never stop being your child’s biggest fan. Always support them in everything they do and always have their back. Never stop encouraging them to be the best version of themselves. Allow them to make mistakes and learn from them.
My Biggest Regret: My biggest regret is letting what others think of me affect my early years of high school. I’ve now figured out that the only opinions that should matter are my own and the those of the people I care about.
