McCain’s favorite high school memory is Senior Sunrise with her best friends.

She says, “Senior Sunrise was probably the most fun I’ve had with my class ever. I felt like it really brought everyone together and it was a great start to a fun senior year.”

After graduation, McCain will miss seeing her friends everyday. 

Her favorite teacher is Kimberly Davenport. 

She said, “she helped me through tough times my junior year and was always very understanding of what I was going through. “

McCain’s mentor was her mom and her softball coaches.

She said, “My mom is my biggest mentor because she knows how to push me to do my best in everything. We are very similar, so she always gives the best advice. She is like my best friend. “

McCain’s favorite class was Chemistry.

She said, “I loved how math and science were combined. It also came easy to me, so it was more fun.”

Her favorite school lunch at the Blue Ridge cafeteria is the baked potato bar. 

McCain’s advice to underclassman is “take advantages of opportunities that come your way and do all of the activities that you want.”
