If you want to strike up a conversation with Scecina senior Abby Brown, you better know about one thing: cheerleading!
Abby is passionate about the sport and dedicates much of her time to it. She is returning for her third year as a Scecina varsity cheerleader and participates on the football, basketball and competition cheer squads. She always gives her best effort when practicing and performing and is committed to her squad. She is a role model for younger teammates who are new to cheerleading, and she even finds time to mentor future Scecina cheerleaders as a coach for the Crusader Cuties. Abby’s devotion to cheerleading has not gone unnoticed by her squad. Last season Abby was named cheerleading’s Most Valuable Teammate, and this season she was selected as a co-captain of the varsity football cheer squad.
The qualities of dedication and tenacity that have set Abby apart as an athlete also have made her a standout in the classroom. Transferring from Greencastle High School as a sophomore, when she moved with her parents, Steve and Amanda Brown, and her three siblings, Abby has wasted no time making her mark on Scecina. She is a member of the National Honor Society and a Scholar Athlete, and she has earned the President’s Academic Excellence Award for two consecutive years.
As she embarks on her senior year at Scecina, Abby admits that applying to colleges has been “a very daunting task.” She plans to continue her education at either Indiana University or Purdue University. She excels in science and plans to major in Nutritional Sciences so she can go on a crusade to end world hunger.
