quotable: “You can’t do anything about the length of your life, but you can do something about its width and depth.” – Evan Esar

her story: Natalie has a hand in a wide variety of activities at Tallassee High School. She is a member of Mu Alpha Theta, serves as class president, maintains a place on the honor roll, and participates in the softball and dance teams. Outside of school, she volunteers her time at her church and the Association of Christians in Tallassee for Service (ACTS), an organization that serves as a clearing house to assist people in their times of need. Through her service to others, she hopes to be remembered “for being kind, loving, forgiving, and having the biggest heart.” When asked to share her best piece of advice for an incoming high school student, Natalie answered, “Don’t take any moment for granted and don’t wish it all away. It’ll be gone quicker than you know it, and you’ll then wish you could have it all back.”

what’s next: Natalie wants to be a physical therapist in the future. She explained, “I always want to help others and make them better.”

PG (parental guidance) rating: Natalie credits her parents with providing the most inspiration in her life, and explained that have done so “by pushing me to be my best and always wanting the best for me.” She added, “They want me to have it better than they did when they grew up. My family is the best, and I couldn’t ask for better.”

parents’ perspective: Catherine and Brad shared, “Natalie has a huge heart and is very level-headed for her age. She has a true realization of what is important in life.” Catherine added, “What is unique about Natalie is that she is her own person and does not follow the crowd. She has a strong faith in Jesus Christ and makes her choices and decisions based on her beliefs.”

parent-to-parent: “It is important to teach our children about successes and failures. No one is perfect and everyone will have failures. Always work hard. If you don’t succeed, try again. No matter what, you never, ever give up.”
