Alex ~ Class of 2020- Bath High School
It was about four years ago when I first noticed Alex. My husband and I were attending a Bath High School Varsity Boys basketball game when I noticed a Bath cheerleader doing the most impressive toe touches that I had ever seen. When I checked the program to find out who she was I discovered that she was only a freshman and it was easy to see how she made the varsity cheer team. Her tumbling skills were very impressive. It was also easy to see that she was full of fun energy and that she truly loved her role as a cheerleader. I enjoyed watching her as she shared her happy spirit with the crowd.
You can imagine that I was thrilled when her mom contacted me 4 years later to shoot her senior pictures. Her mom and dad (Kristi and Jim) both came along for the shoot and I had a wonderful time working with all of them. Jim was a tremendous help to me and I still feel terrible about the bad case of poison ivy that he endured afterwards. There is no doubt about how much Alex’s parents love her!
Alex is 18 years old and she is the youngest in her family of four. In addition to her parents she also has an older brother, Jared. Her life story is very intriguing and I really enjoyed hearing all about it. She came to America when her family brought her home from Haiti at the age of two years old. They have attended the Lima Community Church of the Nazarene as a family during her entire life as an American. They have dogs, cats, chickens and goats.
She has taken dance for 15 years and she has cheered for 6 years. She cheered on the Varsity Cheer Team for all 4 years of high school in football and basketball. She is a member of student council and she has volunteered for the Bath Interact program. She is on the yearbook staff and serves as a member of The Paw Print. She loves to spend time with her family and friends, shopping, singing, watching movies and babysitting. She was elected as the Bath High School Homecoming Queen this year. She performed in the high school musical “Wizard of Oz” where she played the role of The Wicked Witch. She has also participated in the Bath Dinner Theatre. She loves to sing all genres of music and she plans to attend Ohio University studying their musical theatre program.
We all wish Alex many wonderful things as she goes forward into her future. With her happy personality she is sure to find much success. May God bless her greatly.
