Where are they going?: Allison Welch

Welcome to The Mav’s Senior Tradition where we highlight our current seniors and discuss where they are headed

Allison Welch (‘23) plans to attend Utah State after graduation. As of now, she has yet to decide what she wants to study, she’s still deciding between fine arts (specifically musical theater) or archeology. Allison mentioned that should she decide to study archeology, she hopes to work in a museum.

Allison enjoyed being involved at Mead. Her favorite memories include football and basketball games as well as her times with the theater department. She said she’ll always be grateful for “meeting new people and being involved in musical theater”.

Allison is involved in school in many different ways, from tennis to musical theater. She said musical theater had a big impact on her journey of high school. She has been doing theater for over ten years, and she shared “it’s been a big part of my life”.

Allison said she changed a lot since freshman year; “[my] personality and the way that I dress. [Something I used to do] was get up at 4:30 everyday to do a full face of makeup. Now I get up 10 minutes before I leave.”

Allison said COVID-19  was when she was most challenged academically. “It was difficult because everything was shut down and classes were really hard, especially staying on top of things [at home],” she commented.

During Allison’s time at MHS she has made connections with a few teachers. Teachers who have had the biggest impact on her have been choir instructor Ms. Rikelle Berry and English teacher Ms. Jamie Hedlun. She said Ms. Berry has always had really powerful conversations with her while still keeping a professional relationship. Ms. Hedlun helped Allison during challenging times during the pandemic.

When considering advice to share with the Class of 2024, Allison suggests seniors take their last year seriously. Sometimes “doing the minimum is okay, but don’t let it go too far”.

This is a whole new chapter for Allison, and we are confident she will do well in whatever path she takes.
