Kelsey Horton
Hey everybody! My name is Kelsey Horton, I am a senior at Alliance High School. I am the 18 year old daughter of Lyle and Kate Horton. My older brother, Dylan, is in his third year at the United States Naval Academy. This is my second year writing on the SPUD and I am excited to be the Senior Editor this year!

I play volleyball and tennis this year. I am involved in FBLA and FCCLA, Key Club and Academic Decathlon, STEM Club, and Student Council. During the summer, I am a waitress at A-Town Zestos. 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 study Oceanography or Meteorology.

Kelsey Horton, Senior Editor
