Amy Beel

Parents: Kevin and Cindy Beel

Post-graduation plans: Moving to Chicago this August to attend Loyola University, majoring in psychology and minoring in photography.

GPA: 11.0

Favorite high school memory: Probably every day that I would get to leave early to go to a concert. Those days were always the best. I was always in a super good mood because my evening was going to rock, literally, and I didn't have to spend the whole day at school. I just collected my homework and headed toward St. Louis. Those were the best times!

Summer plans: I plan on traveling as much as I can this summer. I have road trips to Chicago, Kentucky and Ohio already planned out. I also plan to attend as many concerts as humanly possible for me. It should be a fun summer!

What will you miss about high school? I'll miss the easy homework, but honestly I'm very, very ready to move on to college, so there isn't very much at all that I will miss about high school.

Explain your prop: Most of my high school career I was plotting my move to Chicago, so I brought a book giving maps and things to do in Chicago. I also brought my iPod because everyone who knows me, knows that I love music, and attend any concerts that I can find a way to get to so I figured my iPod (named Bert McIpod for those wondering) would be a good way to represent this.
