Where are they going?: Chloe Reed
Welcome to The Mav's Senior Tradition where we highlight our current seniors and discuss where they are headed to.
Graduation is roughly four months away, and seniors are beginning to finalize their post-secondary plans. Colleges are responding to applications, and scholarships are being filled out by the dozen. It’s the time of year when students choose their path.
Chloe Reed (‘20) is a senior who has a path set out for her. She has been accepted to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott, Arizona, and is planning on pursuing a degree in aeronautics. “The school is known for its aviation and aeronautical studies,” said Reed. “It has a program devoted specifically to aeronautics, which no other school really has. Other schools will have engineering programs with a major in aeronautics, but this school has a specific program for it.”
“My degree is going to start off with planes in general, but as I go on, I’ll focus on specific parts of a plane or fuel studies,” Reed said. For her, the sky is the limit, but she is really looking forward to working in aeronautics.
Reed has always enjoyed her science classes. “Science is kind of related to my major. I also like languages and reading and drawing as well.” She has really enjoyed taking French at Mead. “It’s always made me happy to be around Ms. Jukich [the French teacher].”
Looking back on her classes and teachers, specifically those that impacted her the most, she said, “Everybody kind of impacts you in some sort of way. I feel like Mr. Holskin was really important because I had never really clicked with math teachers since seventh grade, and I came to dread it. But he helped me enjoy it again, and it made me feel less scared about going into a math-related field.”
Reed is both looking forward to and dreading the independence that will come with attending college. “It’s like a double-edged sword. I’m a little apprehensive, but it’ll be really cool to go off and do things for myself. It’s also sad that I’m not going to have anybody that I know well.”
