She is kind, caring, and of good moral character. She is outgoing and full of personality. These qualities will make her an asset to society. She is ranked number 4 in a highly intelligent, highly competitive class and has taken a full honors load in high school including AP classes and dual-credit college courses.
Chelsea is definitely a leader, on the field with our highly acclaimed dance team as an officer and in our state award winning Student Government as a representative and a senator. She is Vice President of the Spanish Club and a member of the National Honor Society. Chelsea is a leader in the classroom. She always is attentive and asks very intelligent questions. There are only two girls in AP Calculus but Chelsea holds her own and keeps the boys in check! She is a real sweetheart to have in class.”
