Shelby Spencer

Hoping to stay put: Has seen a lot of the country. Has lived in Nevada, Wisconsin, Texas, Indiana and Washington. “I like it (in Granite Falls) because it is a small town and you know everybody. You know everybody in the school.”

Student body president: Moved to Snohomish County three years ago and was elected treasurer of Granite Falls Middle School student body last year and president this year. Presidential goals include getting cheerleaders at the middle school to raise school spirit during games, getting pep assemblies and starting a student-to-student tutoring program.

Career goal: Veterinarian, for now.

For the love of sport: Played four sports – volleyball, basketball, soccer and track – for the middle school last year. Enjoys softball most.

A favorite memory: Last year around Christmas, her parents told her to remove her Uncle Loren’s presents from the car. When she got there, there was a yellow lab puppy with a bow around it waiting for her.

Her canine friend: Named her dog Carson. “She is really nice. She likes to play fetch. She likes to jump on the trampoline with us.”

Literary recommendation: “The Skin I’m In” by Sharon Flake.

Tutors youngsters: Is part of a leadership class that goes to Monte Cristo Elementary School to work with younger students.
