What year did you graduate from Burlington High School?


Tell us about your accomplishments since graduating from BHS.

I have recently graduated SCC with my AAS Interactive and Social Media Marketing Degree! I am the also BHS Dance Team Coach and have been doing this since 2022, so you’ll see me around at the school and events! I was on the dance team when I was in high school so going from the dancer to the coach is such a blessing.

During your time at BHS, did you have a favorite staff member who had a positive impact on you? Tell us about them. 

Laci Johnson was always so kind and helpful. She has such an impact on the students.

Do you have any advice for recent and future graduates?

Enjoy every moment. You’ll miss it as you get older.

How did your time at BHS impact your adult life?

It prepared me for my adult life. There’s a lot of things you wouldn’t expect to experience in your adult life, so getting that preparation of being responsible and the experiences I had helped me through the years.
