Senior Spotlight

By Tyler Arnold

Seniors who are in the spotlight this week are Hannah Lindblad and Alyssa Townson.

Hannah’s parents are Randy and Lisa Lindblad. She has four siblings named Sarah, 30, Matt, 26, Kyle, 11, and Aly, 9.

Activities she has participated in during high school are FBLA, Anchor Club, HOSA, Journalism, Co-Op, NHS, SNHS and ODK. She is also the current the HOSA President and the current NHS Secretary.

Hannah’s favorite teacher is Mrs. Hornbuckle because “we’re literally the same person.”

Her favorite school memory was her senior pep rally because it was “so sweet to see everyone come together.” Hannah plans to become a nurse practitioner after graduation and her life’s biggest dream is to be happy and positively inspire the lives of others.

Words of wisdom she has for underclassmen are, “Do more than what’s asked of you. Leave here with purpose.” Hannah describes herself as “outgoing,” and her proudest moment was becoming an aunt to her nephew Atchley.

The @name she’s selected for an administrator is for Mrs. Hornbuckle: @djbornhuckle. Something that few people know about Hannah is that she cannot ride a bike, and the most creative excuse she’s used to get out of homework was that one of her family members was sick.

Even though she’s afraid of heights, she wants to skydive before she dies. Her hidden talent is tongue popping.

Alyssa Townson’s parents are Gary and Kelly Townson, and her siblings are Brad Townson, 31, and Colby Townson, 23.

Activities she has participated in are NHS, FBLA, ODK, HOSA, and she was also a bank teller from 2017-2018. She was the former HOSA President from 2017-2018.

Alyssa doesn’t have a favorite teacher and has loved every one she has had over the past four years.

Her favorite memory was at a HOSA competition in her junior year. She and Hannah Lindblad stayed up the whole night studying and laughing.

She plans to go to UAB, get a BSN, and then go back to become a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner.

Her life’s biggest dream is to be happy in everything she does, and her words of wisdom to underclassmen are, “What you do now matters. Work hard to reach your goals.” Alyssa describes herself as charismatic, and her @name for an administrator is Braz@emotionlessmuscle.

She describes senioritis as “not having the will to move from my bed in the morning.” She would like to hike to Machu Picchu before she dies, and something that few people know about her is that she used to be a ballerina.

Sports

Our Guntersville basketball teams played Albertville on Tuesday and Brewer on Thursday.

The varsity boys won against Albertville and the girls played their hearts out but came up short.

Guntersville hosts Southside this Saturday, December 15, so come out and support GHS basketball.

Our GHS Indoor Track team has started to practice, so be on the lookout for those students training both inside and outside of the school- rain or shine!
