15 minutes with Justice Cheney, 2014 AHS grad planning to move to Columbus

By Torie Wright

What year did you graduate from Ada High School?
I graduated in May of 2014.

You recently graduated from State Beauty Academy. What’s coming next?
Next will be a job in the nail industry, and after six months I will be taking the next step in life and will be moving to Columbus to see what’s in store for me there.

When did you first discover your love of nail art?
I always enjoyed doing others’ nails for fun, whether it was painting for fun or doing nails for homecoming, or even getting my own done every two weeks.

A chat with Allison Howard

15 minutes with Allison Howard

We understand you were homecoming queen this year. What thoughts went through your mind when your name was announced on the football field?

Oh I didn't know what to think, honestly. I was overjoyed and surprised and just so grateful. I didn't think much, I just felt it all and it was wonderful, to say the least.

Have you decided on your college plans next year?

I've decided to go to Rhodes for two years for all my prerequisite classes, and then I plan on finishing college at either the OSU branch in Lima or going to Columbus.

15 Minutes with Gabi Rall, AHS senior, dreaming of becoming a pediatrician

By Torie Wright

How does it feel to be a senior? Have you ordered your cap and gown?
It is fun and exciting because I see the high school from a different perspective now. At the same time it is very overwhelming, stressful, and sad because there are a lot of deadlines to meet, and this is the last time that some of us seniors will do the activities that we participate in.

I ordered my cap and gown a few weeks ago.

By Torie Wright


You graduated from Ada High School in 2010. What have you been doing since then?
I attended Cosmetology School but am currently not doing that. I work for Westport Homes and am looking into getting my realtor's license and maybe going back to school in the near future.

How did you end up living in Indiana?
I moved to Indiana with Thomas and Jordan Hirn after we graduated high school. Honestly it was the best decision I made after high school.
