Senior Spotlight - Alyssa Anderson, Cross Country

What is your favorite memory at Walker and why? Or what do you like most about Walker?
What I love about Walker, and what I'm going to miss, is the people here. Whether that be friends genuinely asking how my day is going or teachers asking about how my weekend went, I love the sense of family. The support the school has given me throughout my 14 years here is immeasurable.

What's your perfect pre-game meal and what's on your pre-game playlist?
My perfect pre-race meal is a massive bowl of pasta and caesar salad plus chocolate chip cookies for dessert. As for music I usually start with a more relaxing John Mayer kind of playlist at 6 am and the closer we get to race time I switch to a current rap playlist.

Do you have a community service project in which you like to participate and why do you choose to spend this time helping?
I routinely volunteer at the Marietta Food Pantry just south of Walker. I love to serve there because of the families I get to see each month. They are always so grateful and kind even though they have to wait in a long line for food after long days at work. The children are also a plus! They never fail to make me smile.
