Kourtney Ford is a 4 year member of the Hi-Steppers. She is a senior this year and served as left end lieutenant. Kourtney has many memories from being a Hi-Stepper and some that she will hold onto for the rest of her life.

The thing I’m going to miss most about this team is all the wonderful girls I got to know and love over the past four years.”

— Kourtney

“Being a Hi-Stepper for four years has made my high school so much more fun and also made it a little more challenging,” Kourtney said. “I have enjoyed all of these years and will always have the memories to look back on.”

Kourtney has gained a lot of different life lessons while being involved in drill team. Being an officer this year, she has learned new responsibilities, dependability and learned new ways to communicate with other people.

“I’ve not only gained so many more friends, but I have also gained more life lessons that I can take with me anywhere,” Kourtney said. “There is so much more to being in a drill team than what people think.”

Kourtney tried out for Hi-Steppers her freshman year and has been in the organization for all 4 years. She was not able to become a big sister last year as a junior, so she got the opportunity this year to be one as a senior.

Being able to be a big sister this year was a new experience for her, but something she will always cherish.

“I have loved the experience of being a big sister this year and being able to be there for Chelsea whenever she needed me,” Kourtney said.

By being an officer this year, Kourtney has had many responsibilities to be one of the leaders of the team. At first she was nervous to become an officer and to be a leader for the year, but as she got closer to the team she realized how much fun it was going to be.

“After making officer my senior year, I was so happy, but I also didn’t know what was going to happen.” Kourtney said. “I’m so glad I have gotten to take this position as an officer with such good people.”

Kourtney will miss the feeling of Friday night football, performing at the Christmas parade, and spring show, but one thing she will miss the most are the girls she’s gotten to know over the years.

“The thing I’m going to miss most about this team is all the wonderful girls I got to know and love over the past four years.” Kourtney said.

Kourtney is one of five seniors graduating for the Hi-Steppers of 2019.
