It is no wonder that Avery knows all about senior pictures and senior yearbook photo requirements — it’s part of her job as assistant yearbook editor on the Doherty yearbook staff. In fact, this is her third year working with the Spartan yearbook where she helps with the spreads, layout, pictures and quotes.
She is also the Co-Chief of the Doherty Origami club. The Origami club, as the name suggests, creates Origami, which is the art of paper folding, and is often associated with Japanese culture. The club has two fundraisers during the school year; they fold flower bouquets in February and in December they fold ornaments out of wrapping paper.
During her senior portrait session, Avery was very grateful to wear what she considers a special treasure. Her grandma had given her a butterfly necklace before she passed away and Avery loves to wear it for special events and occasions to remind her of her relationship with her grandma. You can see that special heirloom around her neck in her senior portraits.
After graduation next spring Avery hopes to tour Washington DC and the Maryland area during a family reunion (that was postponed from last summer due to Covid). In the fall she will begin a two-year degree at Pikes Peak Community College before transferring to either Metro State or the University of Northern Colorado. Following college, she plans to pursue her passions of landscape photography and journalism.
