How can you tell if you see a dogwood tree? By its bark. This is just one of the many daily jokes told by this week’s B-D female Donkey Feed senior spotlight Kaily Early. While being active in basketball, fastpitch and slow-pitch softball, Early also was very active in FCCLA and Student Council. Early took some time out to answer some of out questions.

B-D: When I was young, I imagined myself as…

Early: I imagined myself being a professional dancer/singer only for Trace Adkins’ song “Honky Tonk” … I was five.

B-D: What is an accomplishment you’re proud of?

Early: I am really proud of my academic success and where it has got me because it’s something I worked hard for.

B-D: What extra-curricular activity do you enjoy the most and why?

Early: I enjoy both softball and basketball because they take my stress away and never fail to bring me joy and laughter. They have helped me build some of the strongest friendships and make memories that will last a lifetime.

B-D: What are your plans after high school?

Early: I plan to go to SWOSU and hopefully figure out what I want to do.

B-D: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Early: I see myself settled down, working a job that I love, and happily married with a lot of dogs.

B-D: What is your favorite junior high memory?

Early: The only thing I remember from Seventh Grade was getting in trouble everyday because I would laugh so much with my friends.

B-D: What is a favorite high school memory?

Early: My favorite high school memory is when I shoved cake in Coach Snider’s face on the last day of school my Sophomore year.

B-D: What will you miss the most after you graduate from Bray-Doyle?

Early: I will miss how the school felt like a second home. I will miss my teachers, friends, Mr. Tillson yelling “Earls come here: in the hallway, and randomly screaming in the hallway just to see if anyone would notice.

B-D: What class have you enjoyed the most and why?

Early: I’ve enjoyed taking Mr. Holman’s math classes. I’ve always thought math was fun and challenging and he made the class interesting and exciting. I’ve also enjoyed Mrs. Carden’s class because she has taught me valuable lessons to take on through life and has given me some of the best advice.

B-D: Who is your favorite teacher/faculty member and why?

Early: All of them have been there for me when I needed them, but I have to give special credit to Mrs. Pass because she has always been there to keep a smile on my face and Mrs. Chambers because she has been my rock throughout high school and probably knows me better than I know myself.

B-D: What three words best describe you?

Early: The three words that best describe me would be determined, goofy, and humble.

B-D: How would you like to be remembered as you leave Bray-Doyle?

Early: I hope to be remembered as the girl who made people feel welcomed and encouraged. I hope to have shown kindness and positivity through everything I did.

B-D: What are some words of wisdom you would give to the under-classmen?

Early: Instead of comparing yourself to others, focus more on your great qualities that make you one of a kind. Give everything you do your very best, work hard, stay humble, and always be positive even when it’s hard. Always remember Psalm 139: 13-15.
