Anais is a current sophomore here at WCHS/WACC and is in our Gone Boarding Program with Miss Miller. She has also taken Intro to Manufacturing, Child Development, Advanced Child Development, & Preparing for College and Careers. 

Anais says she's super thankful for the experiences she's gained in the WACC classes she's taken so far. Preparing for College & Careers definitely opened her eyes to the real world. She decided to take Intro to Manufacturing because she is interested in using different materials for building projects and is looking forward to taking Welding next year. Anais also enjoyed the knowledge she gained from her child development classes with Ms. Renbarger.

In her spare time, Anais plays Rugby and works hard to be an honor roll student. As for her plans for graduation, Anais isn't sure what career she wants to pursue yet, but knows she'd like to go to college & would love to own a business someday.
