    Favorite Ferris Memory

    • I have a lot of great memories of Ferris from when I was a student and to now being on staff its hard to narrow it down. However, my most fond memory(s) comes from being able to be a part of some pretty special football teams here at Ferris. Whether it be from practices, games or to winning state in 2010, some of my most cherished moments comes from being apart of those teams with some of my closest friends.

    Favorite Ferris Memory

    •  As the former Head Fast-pitch Coach, winning the district championship in 2011 for Fast-pitch Softball and beating all but LC that season is my favorite Ferris memory. This is the only time Ferris has ever won districts in Fast-pitch and it was done but such an amazing group of girls and coaches. I was truly blessed to be able to work with such incredible players and coaches that season!
