About: Kayley Owens
What is an interesting fact about you?
I am into landscape and watercolor painting. It’s my favorite weekend hobby.
(One of her works is featured here).
What do you like most about Cherokee High School?
What I like most about Cherokee High School is the unique people. No two people are quite the same. I’ve learned so much from from different types of people and how they see the world; it’s helped me grow into who I am today.
What are your future plans after high school?
After high school, I plan on attending a local school where I can be directly involved in the science program. Then, my hope is to transfer into a higher level school to study molecular biology and biochemistry.
What is your favorite subject?
My favorite subject has always been science, especially this year. Science has always been a subject I’ve felt is relevant, intriguing, and genuinely interesting. Even though it can feel impossible to understand at times.
What are you involved in at CHS?
I have been involved in the music program on bassoon and Winterguard since I was a freshman. Both of which has taught me persistence and dedication.
What is the best piece of advice you’ve given or received?
The best advice I have ever received was to “just try again.” I don’t think she even meant to give me advise, but it taught me a lot. Because the number of failures are irrelevant if you try again. As long as you try, you’re always progressing.
We know that Kayley will continue to do amazing things, and we would like to wish her the best of luck as she continues her career here at CHS!
