Kaitlen Fox strives to lead both at school and in the community.
The senior is a member of the ROTC, Blue Ridge Performing Arts Academy, and the early graduation program.
“I decided to go into the early graduation program so that I can focus on dance and work with my mom who works in uttermost or dad who works at Davis Heating and Air,” says Fox.
In BRPAA she is on their competitive Irish Dance Team.
“There are not many people in the group, and I did not plan on going back to it, but the teacher convinced me to,” Fox says.
Along with the dance program she is a part of, she is a mentor in the school's ROTC program.
“As a senior in the ROTC program and being the only older female in class, I am a mentor to our new, younger level 100 female cadet. She is a great cadet. I love being able to mentor her and that Master Sergeant Hamblin has the trust in me to be her mentor,” Fox says.
Along with all the programs she is a part of she is known by her peers as a very bright and sweet girl.
“Kaitlen is an amazingly fun person to be around and laugh with,” says Lane Scott, Freshman LE100 cadet.
Hunter Shively, Sophomore, LE 200 Cadet, adds on by saying, "Kaitlen has the kind of laugh that can make any dull moment bright.”
Kaitlen plans to go to Virginia Western https://www.virginiawestern.edu/ for two years then transfer to Clemson University http://www.clemson.edu/ for two years and graduate with a degree in architectural design.
