As I put the finishing touches on the 2013 Senior graduation announcements and give my seniors goodbye hugs, I find it a little surreal that we are off and planning for the class of 2014. Last year was the first time we had Ambassadors or Reps for Boulay Photography, and I really wasn’t sure what to expect. I guess what surprised me the most was how close I became to those girls and how much I’ve grown to care about them and their futures.
We’ve learned a lot over the past year and are thrilled to welcome our new reps for the 2013-2014 school year. We have another outstanding group of young people working with us and I can’t wait to see what we will accomplish together this year!
Here they are, the Boulay Girls and Guys team for 2014!
Carter and Lindsay: Independence High School
Carter is a natural leader. His list of school activities includes Young Life, Habitat for Humanity, Hosa, Stars Executive Council, and National Honors Society. He loves playing golf and may pursue that passion in college. He hopes to study medicine and become a cardiologist.
Lindsay has to be one of the nicest young ladies I’ve ever met! She is involved in youth group at church, Habitat for Humanity, and the theater program at Independence. She is a varsity football cheerleader as well.
Mattie and Rachel: Centennial High School
Rachel (left) has a heart for working with children through missions. She is in church youth group, plays guitar and piano and maintains outstanding grades in school. Her faith and mission work in Haiti guide her heart. In fact, she is spending most of the summer in Haiti on a mission trip.
Mattie does a little bit of everything! She is in student council, on the CHS dance team, theater, and FCA. There are no strangers in Mattie’s world! A budding actress, she performs in school shows as well as other local theater productions and is amazing on stage.
Charlotte and Caley: Ravenwood High School
Charlotte (left) puts her “all” into everything she does and has a gift for looking at life with a positive attitude. She is a member of Young Life and is involved with Stars and Saddle Up! She is also an active member at Brentwood Baptist church.
Caley has an amazing sense of style and an engaging smile that draws others to her. It’s no wonder that she’s a Ravenwood cheerleader. Caley truly cares for others and goes the extra mile to help out when needed by her friends.
Mandy and Emily: Franklin High School
Emily (sitting) is a social media “queen” and has a laid-back quality that makes others comfortable around her. She is a cheerleader at Franklin and also loves baseball.
Mandy sings in the student band at church, is a member of the Spanish Honor Society as well as Future Educators of America, and is on the Student Leadership team at church. Mandy loves working with children, so maybe teaching is in her future!
Laura and Julianna: Brentwood High School
Laura (seated) is a talented lacrosse player and is very involved in her church, Holy Family, where she is a member of the youth group and teaches Sunday school.
Julianna, or “Jules” as she is known to her friends and family, is also involved in her church youth group, and is a member of Young Life. She is also active with Brentwood Girls’ Cotillion.
Alex and McKenzie: Page High School
Alex (standing) is a football and competition cheerleader at Page as well as a member of the Drama club. She also holds many pageant titles, but her passion is in her work with the American Heart Association. She wants to help all teens and kids become more aware of the importance of heart health.
McKenzie is also a football and competition cheerleader and is known for being outgoing and friendly to everyone. She strives to do her very best in school and her faith keeps her grounded and focused in life.
You will be hearing more from these rising seniors as the year progresses. They are already out there spreading the word about Boulay Photography! I am thrilled to have them on board.
