Kelsey’s favorite book is “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” and her favorite color is purple. She likes country music and eating pasta. Her favorite TV shows are “The Bachelor” and “One Tree Hill.”
After Kelsey graduates, she plans on going to Morningside to play volleyball. In ten years, she sees herself married with kids and having a stable job. Her favorite high school memory is playing in and winning the 2013 girls basketball championship. Kelsey’s advice to the underclassmen is “hard work pays off.”
If Kelsey could spend a day with anyone she wanted, she would spend it with two people. First, her grandma Anna May Ackerman because Kelsey misses her, and second, her grandpa George Nagel because Kelsey never got to meet him.
Good luck in the future, Kelsey!
