Amanda Craven

      Journee Moore has been selected for student of the Month of October. Journee is the Student Body Vice President, a 4 year member of the Hi-Steppers, and 2 year Lieutenant of the Hi-Steppers, has been Class Favorite, a 3 year Beauty nominee, secretary for National Honor Society, been a member of the Anchor Club and AASA. Journee has many qualities that are essential in order to be student of the month.

“I am always friendly and welcoming to everyone,” Journee said. “Putting people before myself has always been something I do.”

Journee’s proudest moment here at KHS was representing Kilgore in the Miss Gregg County Pageant. Friends, family, and Bulldogs went out to cheer for her and got the title of the Most Spirited School in East Texas back.

“Being Miss Kilgore was the highlight of my high school year so far,” Journee said. “It was truly an honor to represent KHS and to see the Student Body come out to support me; a true blessing.”

Journee’s favorite school activity is being a Lieutenant of the KHS Hi-Steppers.

“I love being a part of a dance family and being their leader to guide them through everything,” Journee said.

      Journee is very influenced by her mom and sees her as the most important person in her life.

“She always has the best advice and knows how to help me with difficult things,” Journee said. “She is my biggest supporter.”

Despite Journee’s success, she has still faced some challenges throughout high school.

“My high school has had many challenging things and that is how high school is supposed to be,” Journee said. “High school challenges me to become a young adult.”

Out of all of Journee’s teachers, Mrs. Parrish has had the biggest impact on her.

“Mrs. Parrish is the most influential person I have ever met,” Journee said. “She has helped and guided me with everything.”

Coach Gillen-Hall has taught her the most throughout her high school experience. Journee will forever be thankful for such a great teacher like Coach Gillen-Hall.

“I never truly understood math, but he would break down every step of the equation,” Journee said.

Journee will miss Co-ed Dance and the Hi-Stepper class the most when she graduates.

    “Those two classes are the most fun and everyone has a good time,” Journee said.

Journee has many friends she trusts but the person she truly considers her best friend is her boyfriend.

“I can be myself without judgment and he is always there when I need him,” Journee said.

Journee plans to major in nursing to be a labor and delivery nurse.

“I love babies and it will be the best feeling bringing them into the world,” she said.

Journee will be attending TCU in the fall of 2024 when she graduates.

“They have a good nursing program and they have the best dance team,” Journee said.

Even though high school has been a great experience, Journee still fears being unable to adjust to college life.

A quote Journee lives by is:

“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” ~ Maya Angelou
