What advice do you have for next year’s freshmen?

Get involved! There are so many great programs at the high school, which will give you the opportunity to meet some amazing people and really make your high school experience worth while. Set your goals high and don’t take any of these next four years for granted.

Who was your favorite teacher and why?

Mrs. Young and Mr. Rudolph. Both of them are so supportive and treat their students like their own children. They go way beyond the expectations of a teacher. I love them both and will miss them so much!

When you were not in school or studying, what did you enjoy doing?

I perform a lot at different venues around town. I love in musicals! I sing, dance and play the piano and ukulele.

What college do you plan to attend and why?

I plan to major in commercial music at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee. Their school of music is one of the best. I fell in love with their program and campus and Nashville is a great city!

What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?

Anything in the music business. Hopefully make a living singing and performing because that’s what makes me happiest.
