Mattie Scott the dancer, the historian, the healer, the friend. She has been a proud Locust Forkian for the past three years. And with her time here she has joined both the sports medicine team, Big Brothers and Big Sisters Program, and the yearbook staff, where she enjoys working hard with her fellow staff members.

Something most people don't know about Mattie is that she has been dancing since she was 2 years old. She can go from the elegant steps of ballet to the invigorating stylings of jazz. She enjoyed dancing competitively and misses it greatly.

Much like the rest of the world Mattie is a fan of the Twilight series, and she said, "If I could meet anyone right now it would be Taylor Lautner." Considering her favorite animal is a wolf it only makes sense that she would pick him. If Mattie were to sum up her her day to day life she would say "Fun and wild."In her free time she enjoys playing guitar and hanging out with her friends. Her biggest inspiration is her mother, because she is so strong and confident. After graduating from high school Mattie plans to go to college and major in psychology because the mind interests her. Overall, Mattie is a very interesting individual with a bright future ahead of her.
