A Virtual Cup of Coffee with Katie Bill '20

A Virtual Cup of Coffee with Katie Bill '20

You can only have one: Rose’s caramel corn, an ice cream cone from Jersey Junction, or a Yesterdog. Which do you choose?

What are your plans after graduation?
I plan on attending Michigan State University.

What have you learned in East that will enable you to be successful?
Being able to branch out of the East Grand Rapids bubble has allowed me to make friendships that will last a lifetime.

What were you like in school?
I think I was a funny, determined person who had goals set for myself that I was determined to reach all throughout high school.

Did you have a favorite teacher or class?
I liked all my science classes and loved all my teachers!

If you had to choose one moment in one location to serve as the signature moment of your East school experience, what would it be?
The football games, in the student section, because those were the best times throughout my years.

What do you know now that you wish you’d known when you were younger?
To never take anything for granted and you can be your complete self in high school.

Who from East do you think you’ll stay in touch with in the future?
I think I will stay in touch with all my friends in my grade and even the grade above or below me.

What advice do you have for young East kids?
I wish I had someone tell me to go to every sporting event, every party, every time your friends ask you to hang out, to enjoy every lacrosse practice, and never take any of it for granted.

Bonus question: What are you glad we didn’t ask you about?
How sad are you about not being able to have a normal senior year?
