Bucky’s Family: Kassi Savage

Meet Bucky’s Family member, Kassie Savage!

Kassie is a senior here at Beaverton High School and is 17 years old. She was born in Portland, Oregon and has lived here all her life. She grew up in a home with a big family including her siblings and step-siblings. She is the oldest of the bunch. Kassie is super outgoing and loves Beaverton High. As she liked to explain it, she’s an open book!


Something not everyone knows about Kassie is that she works at Target, is involved with Thespians, Girl Scouts, Gay-Straight Alliance, Leadership, and Choir! One of her passions is drama. Drama has been a part of her life since she was in middle school. She loves being involved in plays and being a part of the Thespian community because she can really be herself and forget about all her struggles that she might be going through. It has always served as an outlet for her and it has also introduced some of her biggest role models.


Kassie’s biggest role models are teachers at BHS: Ms. Osman and Mr. Dery. She explained that they both are super accepting and understanding. They have also done some really awesome things in their lives. She met Mr. Dery in middle school and he became, as she liked to put it, her “awesome and weird uncle”. He was her drama teacher at Whitford and he introduced her to the amazing and creative world of drama. Through this, she found her love for musicals and so she started choir! She really looks up to Mr. Dery and appreciates everything he has done for her.


Her background has raised her up to be the awesome person that she is today. She learned to take care of herself and others, especially her family and she is a better person because of it. She has a love for the performing arts. Painting and writing are activities that she has realized she has a great passion for. Beaverton is so lucky to have such an involved and brave person like Kassie.


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….

Leadership class will always be remembered as my favorite class. The events we put on and the desire to create change within Beaverton are so crucial to creating the welcoming environment. The thing that I will remember the most about Leadership are the relationships I have built this last year.


The senior Leadership positions are filled with diverse and driven people from all walks of life. You would never guess that we were so close, however, the senior class is more of a family than friends. I love working with the seniors in Leadership. We all have strong opinions and we are all trying to be leaders in the school. We are the last of the 90s kids. The ability to have a class where you genuinely care about the people you are working with is so valuable. I enjoy spending time with them outside of school which is something I have not experienced in any other class. I am so lucky to be part of this group and will have lasting friendships with so many of them.


I am thankful for Leadership and all that our class has accomplished this year. ASB is filled with seniors who are experienced in leadership and are excited to be working for BHS. As the school year comes to an end, I hope as a senior class, we will leave a legacy in Leadership where you desire to work hard and be good examples for underclassmen in the school.
