Stephenville High School senior Alyssa Lee wasn’t quite sure what she wanted to do after high school, that is until she joined the school program called Hope.
Throughout her high school career Lee has been involved in theatre and is gearing up for the One Act Play where she will be doing sound for the theatre’s performance of The Caucasian Chalk Cirle.
“I’m the one who plays the music and all the sound effects. It’s very stressful, but it’s going pretty good and we are competing next Thursday,” she said. “I’m very happy that I’m in theatre and I’ve done just about everything in theatre.”
Last year Lee joined Hope and from there decided what her career would be.
“I wish more people knew about it, but it’s a program where you help the special needs kids for a class period - like help them with their school work,” she said. “Last year I was in their reading class and we helped them read and spell stuff out and this year I take two kids to art and help them with their art projects and just help them feel normal.”
After graduation Lee will attend Tarleton State University to get her basics finished and then transfer to the occupational therapy school at Weatherford College.
Lee grew up in Stephenville and said she will miss, “the motivation that teachers give to get stuff done.”
