What is your full name? 

Kailyn Brooke Rittenberry

What are your future plans? What are you majoring in, if you are planning on attending a post-secondary school? 

I am going to attend Johnson University in beautiful Knoxville, Tennessee- majoring in Music Ministry.

What has made this year your best year?

This year has been the best year because I have been allowed so much freedom to hangout with the people that I love most in the world. This has been a year of consistent memory making and immense joy. I love my Jesus, friends, family, and boyfriend and have truly loved furthering all of those relationships this year.

If you could give any advice to the underclassmen, what would you say?

Take advantage of extra curricular activities, and make sure to slow down and enjoy the good parts of high school, this time has the potential to be awesome but it’s also irrevocably temporary so don’t feel too bad if it sucks. Don’t spend too much time thinking about the things that will not make any difference in your life in 5 years.

P.S. love people, it goes a long way



Who has been your biggest influence at the school and why? (teacher, administrator, staff member)

Mrs. Schoeff because she’s freaking awesome and quite actually the most genuine person I’ve ever met in my life. There is no one in my life like that women and she is one of my biggest influencers both as a person and as a musician.


What Class has been the most beneficial for you? Why? 

Choir classes in high school have easily been the most beneficial and fun. Music is a giant part of my life and I know that I have been monumentally changed by the joy the being in choir and every other aspect of LHS’s music department.


What is something interesting about you that most people wouldn’t know about you?

I am the least athletic person that I know, but I could hike for days. I love hiking more than I love eating and ya girl likes eating a lot.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

I see myself thriving with my best friend, living somewhere that needs our help and furthering our life’s ministry as helping people in places lacking. I hope that I have the resources to truly help, impact, and be impacted all while pursuing the plans that God has already figured out for me. I am hoping to be used as a Worship Leader at a church somewhere while also exploring and traveling all over to sing and help churches all over loving people and serving people in any way that I can.

Are you planning on playing sports in college? if so what sport and where? 

No but I’ll be walking up and down stairs a lot so that’s something.
