Dawnae’s high school experience: I began attending Eldorado High School in August. When I first started here I had no friends. But after a few days I began to get involved in clubs and activities. I got involved in Best Buddies and the Native American Club, and I became the manger for the girls’ basketball team. I also began helping out with the cheerleading team. Once I got involved with these extracurricular activities, huge things began to happen to me. I was picked to be an officer in Best Buddies, and then in March the president of Best Buddies asked me to give a speech on the word retarded at a school assembly as part of Spread the Word to End the Word. I had a lot of fun giving that speech in front of so many people. This was the same time I began helping out more with the cheerleaders and they invited me to attend their parent night performance before state. At the parent night I was introduced as part of the cheerleading team. I also got to go with the cheerleaders to the Pit and help out at the state competition. I was able to watch them win 1st place in state. The cheerleaders gave me a couple t-shirts and made me feel like part of the team. I really had a great year being involved in so many activities and I really am going to miss being so involved in high school. I just hope more people get involved in activities like I was.

What is your favorite course? Math because I enjoy solving problems

What are your plans for the future? To go to Grand Canyon University and become an educational assistant to elementary kids.
