Hi! My name is Katey Rench and I will be a Freshman this year! I can’t even believe that I’m in high school. It feels like just yesterday I was starting middle school but now it’s here. I was super excited to get onto leadership as the freshman cite council representative! I wanted to be apart of the school in some way and this is my chance to! My sister was apart of student leadership and she really loved being part of it! One of the things that i’m looking forward to do since I made it into leadership is helping with setting up and creating the assemblies. Since Kylee helped with assemblies my parents would always let me come and watch, they were always so amazing and you could tell that people worked hard to set them up. It made me want to join leadership even more so that I could be one of those people who helped with creating them.
I am part of the JV Beaverton Cheer team! I have done cheer for Beaverton youth cheer for 2 years and It has been so much fun. I am so happy that I made the team this year! I always enjoyed watching the cheerleaders when they would perform at games or at assemblies because I always wanted to be out there doing it too. When I started cheering, I would go to the Little Beavers Camp that the cheerleading team would do and I would always wanna be just like the older girls because they were all so nice and good at what they did. Having had 2 older siblings going to Beaverton, I always enjoyed coming to football games and basketball games and watching how all the students would be so spirited. The people would cheer along and it would get super loud and it always made me super excited to be a high schooler myself!
Outside of school I read a lot! I always love finding a good series so I can just keep getting book after book after book! My favorite library to go to is by Beaverton High School because I can walk there and they have so many books and there’s so many different genres that you can choose from. It’s really nice to have a library close enough to walk to because then you can get a book and get your exercising done for the day. One of my favorite series is by Kiera Cass and it’’s called The Selection Series! I could not put those books down they were so great! When I’m not reading, I love watching shows with my family! One of our favorite shows that we have been watching since we were little kids is America’s got talent! It is a something we looked forward to when it comes out during summer time. I also hang out with friends a lot. Something me and my friends enjoy doing is going to the pool and the mall. We always buy Panda Express or Sushi when we go to the mall because it is kinda like a tradition. I am ready to create new friendships when I join Beaverton High this year and join traditions that have been happening for years.
