Walls known as helpful and sweet

Cindy Ramunno

Staci Walls is the third of four girls in her family – so she gets lots of advice and help from her sisters. The girls were raised in Eagle by their parents and each once is as beautiful as the next.

Walls is a senior at Eagle Valley High School and is well-liked by teachers and peers. Athletic director Dave Scott says, “Staci relates well to people and is an all-around great kid.”

Walls will attend Colorado State University next fall to major in Business Administration with an emphasis on Accounting. She’s also going for a minor in Psychology. “I’m really looking forward to being able to do my own thing and learn who I am,” says Walls. She goes on to say that she can’t wait to meet new people, but she will miss seeing the people that she grew up with and the security of living here.

At CSU, Walls will also be looking at the Honors Program, joining a club soccer team and working during school. She’ll also be working a lot this summer, saving money to help pay her college bills.

Walls has been involved in a variety of activities at EVHS including student council, Devils Against Drinking and Drugs, soccer, National Honor Society and the PACE program. She also served as the photographer at fall sporting events and helped out with the recent theatrical production. She says she’s had great experiences at EVHS, but the one thing she’d change is the socialization. “The interaction between different classes and intermingling needs to improve,” she says.

Walls says her values have helped her with her people skills. Her parents model a strong work ethic and have demanded that their daughters treat people the way that they would want to be treated. Walls has helped the students at Gypsum Elementary during her stint at EVHS, also. Gypsum Elementary School 4th grade teacher Rich Deane says, “Staci came into my classroom and read to the students last fall. I was extremely impressed with the way she interacted with kids and adults. She was a joy to have in the classroom.”

At CSU, Walls plans to take her parents advice and never give up. “My parents have always told me to try my hardest and do what’s right for me – not anyone else.”
