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.
