A Blue Ridge senior, Cassidy Howe, says she will miss her friends and family at our school, but she is excited for the next chapter in her life; and she already has her next few years planned out.
Cassidy is a 4 year participant of National Honors Society, student council, band, and volleyball; a 3 year participant of Leo Club; a 2 year title of class secretary, and 1 year of being in science club. With all of the skills she learned from these events, she is taking those to college to pursue the pre-med track in college, majoring in Biology. Her ideal job after college is to be a neonatologist, which is a career in the health field taking care of newborns/infants, especially the ill. She says she would love to save babies, but she is not sure if her heart can handle it. Cassidy informed the Raider Reader that she chose this path to continue because she comes from a family of healthcare workers, and she loves to help people in need.
To all of the underclassman, Cassidy has some advice. She says, “Your four high school years will pass in the blink of an eye, so don’t take the opportunity to learn for granted. Work hard, set goals, and celebrate your achievements.”
