Student Profile: Garrett

Jordan Garrett is a graduate of Clovis High School. She is the daughter of Danny and Kathy Garrett.

What’s so great about your favorite sport? Softball has so many positives. I love the adrenaline rush it offers but also the friendships and teamwork associated with it.

What do you envision your life being like in 10 years? Hopefully, I will be married with a family and running a business of my own.

Who is your hero and why? My parents … all the way. They have put up with both my brother and me, and I know that takes a lot. They have taught me so much and I couldn’t thank them enough.

What is your greatest fear? Simple — failure.

What do you not like about school? Our schedules are constantly changing. Each new day there is a new schedule. I don’t think the schedule has been the same for the whole year.

Future plans: I plan to attend college, continue playing softball and major in business.
