Jeannette BakerEagle Valley High SchoolTown you live in: EagleHow long In the valley: 18 Looong years!Have you been affected at all by “senioritis” and if so, how are you dealing with it? Personally I deal with my senioritis by only taking four classes per day. On my off hours I usually go out ot lunch and take naps.What are your future plans? I will be attending Metro State College in downtown Denver in the fall 2008 and I’m planning to walk on to their softball team.Fondest high school memory: Playing sports, which include golf, basketball and softball. I love everything about competition and representing the Lady Devils to the best of my ability.How has your high school prepared you for the future? High school has prepared me for life in general. A lot of events happened during these four years to expand my knowledge about the hardships life deals out.Tell us something that few people know about you: Most people do not know that I was diagnosed with a cancerous carcinoid tumor on my appendix, which was removed on March 18. Since then I’ve learned to live, laugh, and love every day, and how much I truly cherish all my friends, family and loved ones. Because of the lesson I have learned, I have a tattoo on my neck that says “Live, laugh and love” over top of three clovers. (Most people don’t know that.)What makes you smile? Nothing makes me smile and laugh more than my friends. I love driving around and singing with them after a hard day, or simply to waste time! I also smile a lot when I win at anything – you could say I’m a little bit too competitive.
