“I’m a captain [of the Varsity Cheerleading team]. I think it’s fun and I like leading. In practice, we stretch [with] everyone and then we make up quarter and timeout [routines] for the games. It’s kind of sad [that it is my last year here], but at the same time I’m excited for [what comes after high school]. I like the pep rallies. [One piece of advice is that] you should always be kind because you never know what someone’s going through. You don’t want to look back at your high school years and be like, ‘Why did I do that?’ So make sure you think everything through. I want to go to college. I’m looking [forward to either going to] Arizona [for college], but also Mizzou. I want to do something [in the] medical [field], but I want to do something with kids as well. I’m kind of scared, [but I would] probably do pre-med, [and become] a [pediatrician]. I’ve always liked helping [others] and being around little kids. I feel like it would be really rewarding to help little kids, especially if they’re hurt and to make them feel better.” – Marissa Thomasson, 12
