Meet Samantha Shoemaker but you can call her Sam. She is a taller girl, with darker blonde hair,and light blue eyes with glasses and the most contagious smile. This school year, she is entering thesecond year of her high school journey and has chosen to take journalism. She is such a diligentindividual as she manages to find a balance between her academics, social life, work life of scooping icecream, and her athletic career by being a part of the C. Milton Wright women’s volleyball team. She issomeone who values the truth, so if she is given the facts, she is capable of creating a captivating story. Ifyou had to describe Sam using only one word, it would be outgoing! She is always willing to chat withsomeone or exchange a friendly hello, yet so relatable to take an extra second to just listen and be there.No matter what, Sam is always willing to try something new as she lives her life with the mentality that“you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take”. Sam will never settle; she continues to go the extra stepnever worrying about the “what if”? The greatest lesson she was taught is that you should never takeanyone for granted knowing that everyone serves a purpose in this world. Living life with that mindsethas helped her to find her partner in crime, her person, the girl she can be herself around, her best friend,Grace. Together the memories are endless. Sam was asked what animal she relates to most and she chosea butterfly. At a younger age she felt sheltered and restricted like a caterpillar, but life has taken herthrough many seasons to help her hatch from her cocoon and release her wings to grow into this beautifulbutterfly full of life and appreciation.
