CLARENCE — Senior year can be stressful and full of different things as students prepare for college and the real world.

North Cedar senior Amber Kelsey can attest to that.

Although she is busy extremely busy, she still keeps her grades up and is in after school activities.

Kelsey has been part of wrestling cheer, football cheer, competition cheer, student council and band throughout her high school career.

Kelsey also is taking a college composition class through Kirkwood.

After she graduates, she will attend college with hopes of being a Spanish teacher.

“Competition cheerleading was my favorite part of high school because it kept me in shape, I made new friends and I enjoy doing something that makes me feel strong,” Kelsey said. “I am nervous about college because I don’t know exactly what I want to do yet, but I am excited to visit new places and experience new things.”
