Fair Grove Seniors Take Flight

May 26, 2021

Seniors at Fair Grove High School are eager to move onto the next stage of life as the school year comes to an end.

Erin Blevins will be attending cosmetology school at Paul Mitchell after graduation. This school offers hair, cosmetics, and esthetician certifications. Blevins was accepted into the esthetician program, so she will be learning different methods of facials, waxing, eyelash extensions, and many other things included in skin care and beauty.

“I never liked the idea of going to a four year school. I wanted to jump right into what I wanted to do, and until this point, every major that a college offered was never the best fit for me. In the end a trade school that would get me certified and in the working world almost instantly was so appealing to me,” Blevins states.

Sarah Beals will be going to Missouri Valley in Marshall, Missouri. She currently hasn’t decided between physical education and exercise science for her major. She will be playing volleyball on a half ride scholarship as well. 

Some seniors like Eli Edwards and Samantha Horvath will be taking a year off before they continue their academic career. In that year, Edwards plans on starting a career and moving in with his girlfriend. 

Horvath plans on moving out of state and going to Twin Cities in Minnesota. In the meantime she will be remodeling a house and working at her current job, Chipotle. She hopes to earn a scholarship through them within the next year.

Bailey Richardson will be attending College of the Ozarks and majoring in engineering. She plans on joining clubs and activities on campus as she thinks they are important to helping her education. 

“I loved the environment at C of O. Everybody was friendly, and welcoming. It feels like a really safe campus, and I am excited to be able to work towards paying for my tuition and not having student loans when I graduate,” Richardson told.

Nathaniel Brigman plans on attending Southwest Baptist University to major in history education. Brigman explained, “The main factor in my decision to go to SBU is free tuition since my father works there and a scholarship from the college due to my academics.”

Dory Baker will be attending Drury University to major in architecture. She chose Drury because she thinks they have one of the best architecture programs in the area. She also received a scholarship of $28,000. She hasn’t fully decided on extracurricular activities yet, but she is leaning towards Theatre and Color Guard.

Lauren Kennard will be attending Missouri State University to major in early childhood education. She received the Board of Governors scholarship. She also plans on getting involved with the campus’ ministries. 

The future is bright for these Fair Grove graduates as they begin their journey as adults.
