The Student Spotlight

Cassie McCay

Cassie McCay is a true leader of the senior class of 2008 at Locust Fork. She is editor of the yearbook and a member of both the National Honor Society and Mu Alpha Theta. She has been elected president of her class the last six years. She also attends New Covenant church.

She enjoys doing many things during her spare time including horseback riding, which she only gets to do once a year, to her dismay. Random photography, purse shopping, and dancing are some other hobbies she likes. Her favorite type of food is Japanese, but no sushi.

Her biggest influence in her family is her grandmother, whom Cassie loves very much. Cassie says of her grandmother, "As a painter, she has found a way to look at things in a different way than other people. She always seems to see the beauty in everything."  She also added that her grandmother's Death by Chocolate Cake is to die for.

Last fall, she felt honored to be elected as the LFHS Homecoming Queen. When asked why she has made such a good impression on her peers, she said that she just made it her goal to be the best that she can be and be as positive as possible. She says that it is the positive people in Locust Fork that has made an influence on her.

She is excited about what lies ahead for her, but she is going to miss coming to Locust Fork High School.  The things she will miss the most are the people, working on the yearbook, and especially the random free days. After graduating high school, first she intends to do something she has never done, like watching the ball drop on New Years. She plans to go to the University of Alabama, where she will major in business marketing. After college she wants to start a family. Her ideal is a house with a white picket fence, a red door, a Great Dane, and no more than three kids. "My house will be the 'cool' house, so all of my kids will stay at home and I won't have to worry about where they are."
