Makosky says her favorite high school memory is of joining football cheer and creating new friendships and bonds with students from other schools. 

After graduation, Makosky says she will miss going to her dad’s office at random times when she needed a break and she will also miss the many friendships that she has created. 

Makosky’s favorite teacher is Kimberly Davenport. She says, “she always lets me gossip to her and always makes me feel good on a bad day. She makes me feel included and helps me find interest in new things. 

Makosky’s mentor is her dad.

She says, “He always helped me on days I felt like giving up. He believed in me and helped me through it. He was always proud of me no matter what as long as I tried my best. “

Makosky says her favorite class is journalism. 

“It helped spark my interest in writing and became a class I actually enjoy,” she says.

Makosky’s favorite lunch from the Blue Ridge school cafeteria is mozzarella sticks. 

Her advice to underclassmen is: “Always stay positive even on days that feel like they are the hardest. “
