Reicher Catholic High School

Q: Do you have any study tips?
A: I study with music because it helps me focus. I’ll put on a Pandora station. I’ve tried a classical music station, and that helped me focus.
Q: What is one thing you wish you’d known in your freshman year of high school?
A: I wish I knew the stress I would put myself under so I could prepare myself. I would have tried to focus more on my classes and made sure I balanced things better.
Q: What is the best lesson you’ve learned from a teacher?
A: My English teacher, Ms. Carolyn Nicholson, talked about dropping her kids off at Baylor. She said when our parents drop us off at college, we need to make sure we say goodbye and thank them for everything they’ve done.
Q: What are your school and community involvements?
A: I’m a varsity cheerleader, and I’ve joined varsity soccer. I’m on the student council executive board. I’ve been in choir and National Honor Society.
I go to St. Louis Catholic Church, and I volunteer in the nursery there.
Q: With a busy schedule, what do you do to unwind?
A: I’ll spend time with my family and then refocus and wrap my head around what I’m studying.
Q: What do you plan to do after graduation?
A: My first choice is Texas Tech. I’ve also looked at Texas Christian University. I’m planning to major in kinesiology and go into physical therapy.
