Kelsey Horton
Hey everybody! My name is Kelsey Horton, I am a junior at Alliance High School. I am the 17 year old daughter of Lyle and Kate Horton. My older brother, Dylan, is in his second year at the United States Naval Academy. This is my first year writing on the SPUD and I am very excited about what this year will bring.

I play volleyball and am trying tennis this year. I am involved in FBLA and FCCLA, both as the Chapter President. I am also involved in Key Club and Academic Decathlon. During the summer, I am a lifeguard at Big Blue Bay. In my free time, I can be found reading, organizing my things, working on FBLA/FCCLA projects, binge watching Netflix, or eating ice cream. 

After high school, I hope to attend the United States Naval Academy to major in Chemistry. After that, my goal is to get accepted into Medical School and become an Orthopedic Surgeon.
