Meet Junior Ainsley Adams

Hi! My name is Ainsley Adams, and I’m a junior at Beaverton High School. BHS is a really special school with tons of fun and unique traditions. During my first two years of high school, I was involved with the Student Leadership program and grew to love it. This year, I am the ASB Vice President of Student Relations, which means I oversee the advertisements at BHS and am in charge of Beaver Lodge announcements. A fun fact about me is that I’ve been a vegetarian for five years. My goals for improving the school  focus on the ways we advertise. My overarching goal is a hard one to achieve; I want every BHS student to come to school and know exactly what is going on when it comes to games, club meetings etc. I never want the reason a student didn’t come to homecoming or didn’t join a certain club to be because they didn’t know about it. I plan on improving these things by having event boards, the reader board and announcements reflect current scheduled events and encouraging students to care about these events. I also really want to focus on having the leadership class spread news via word of mouth to more than just their friend groups.

I’m looking forward to many things next year, including being an upperclassmen. I also decided to try something new and take yearbook. I think yearbook will be interesting, fun and an opportunity for me to grow. Compared to classes I took my sophomore year, my classes this year are much harder and therefore more nerve-racking. I’m going to have to be more committed and study harder than ever.

Other than being on Student Leadership at BHS, I’m a member of Beaverton’s Key Club. I joined last year and I really enjoy attending the meetings and focusing more on volunteering for others. Key Club has also helped me meet new people I wouldn’t have otherwise. In addition, last year, I was in a play at BHS. I absolutely loved it! I’m hoping to get another opportunity to get involved with theater this year. Also, this year I will be a link leader. I’m super excited to have the opportunity to help freshmen adjust to life at BHS. Outside of BHS I am involved in many things. My mom and I are members of a group called NCL (National Charity League). Through NCL, I volunteer with my mom and meet girls my age from many different schools in the Portland metro area. I’m also a competitive tap dancer. Last year, in addition to a group routine I had a competitive tap solo.

Meet Junior Camila Mejia

Hello Beaverton High School student, my name is Camila Mejia and I’m a junior at BHS. I am the current junior School Board Representative at the school. I was born in El Salvador, a really small country in Central America, and my family and I moved to Oregon in December 2015. And as you may have thought when you read my name, I am fluent in Spanish.

Outside of school, I dance ballet. I’ve done it for a while now, and even though I’m not a  professional dancer, I love doing it. I don’t think of it as a hobby, but as a part of me. I am also very committed to my church. I was born and raised in a Christian home and I am not ashamed of saying it. At Beaverton High School, I’m currently involved in the Leadership Organization and LINK Crew, which have given me the opportunity to see the “behind the scenes” of many different school activities.

These organizations give me the chance to have a bigger voice and to represent a different point of view. At the same time, it gives me the opportunity of helping people, which I love doing. I know high school is not easy, mostly when you feel like you’re on your own. Leadership and LINK allow me to make people feel like they belong here, and that even if they feel like they have no one, I will always be there to listen to them and give them a hand.

I am more than grateful for all that BHS has done for me, and now it’s my chance to give back. Now that you know a little bit about me, I hope whenever you see me at school you’ll say hi.

 

Here Comes Senior Year

By Jennifer Caplan, BHS Class of 2017

As my Junior year comes to an end, I’m starting to get excited about Senior Year and everything it has to offer. Here is my Top 5 list of things that will occur during my Senior Year!

Football Season: During your Freshman year,  you stand in the back, dressed awkwardly, and can barely cheer because you can’t see anything happening.  As the years have gone on, I’ve waited to take part in the tradition of Senior girls standing in the front on the rail and get all dressed up, while screaming at the top of their lungs.

Leadership Retreats: Being apart of Leadership at BHS has been one of the most rewarding and meaningful experiences in my life. I’m looking forward to 1st and 2nd semester retreats because it gives me a chance to get to know and work with people who, like me, want to better our school and community.

Marketing Trips: One of the best parts about being part of the Marketing program is all the out-of-classroom opportunities that we get to experience. From touring Wieden & Kennedy, Nike and Intel to traveling to NY and attending a variety of workshops and hearing from speakers, the marketing program has given me a lot of real world opportunities and experiences. I could not be more excited to see what next year has in store.

17022123_1246239755496389_4660842305173834251_nProm: Prom is the most awaited event at BHS. It’s said to be one of the best nights of High School. I can not wait to see all my classmates dressed up and to take pictures with them on this magical night.

14729360_1102107553242944_175710988988266928_nGraduation: I think I’ve had senioritis since sophomore year. I can not wait for the day of graduation. Although it will be hard to leave my friends, family and the only town that I’ve called home, the future excites me I can not wait to see all that it has to offer.

Junior year was amazing but so incredibly hard and busy. I know first semester of senior year will be equally as busy with applying to colleges, but I can’t wait to embrace all that they year has to offer and all of the exciting events of my Senior year. I have been looking forward to Senior year for the last 3 years, and it’s finally here….
