    Senior Paige Autry leaves a lasting impression on PRHS

    Everyone is able to recognize Paige Autry by not just her golden blonde hair and sparkling blue eyes, but by her contagious smile.  From participating in sports, dance, and FFA, Autry has made an impression on Paso Robles High School’s staff and students that will last a lifetime.

    “Paige is wonderful because she’s the type of student that cares most about learning. The grade is secondary to her because the reason she is so passionate about learning is to really make the world a better place,” said Gaylene Ewing, AP Biology teacher, said.

    Autry has been involved in many science classes throughout her high school career, ranging from AP Biology with Mrs. Ewing, Marine Biology with Jon-Paul Ewing, to Animal Anatomy with Amanda Gardner.

    “I love our science department. If I could, I would take every class as a science class. I think we’re really lucky at Paso to have such an amazing science department with all the classes that we offer,” she said.

    Autry’s love for science stemmed from her love for animals. Autry began showing lambs for her 4H group when she was only nine years old.

    “My uncle kind of put the bug in my ear, ‘you wanna show lambs?’ I remember writing up a contract and telling my parents that I would save up and pay for half of my four hundred dollar lamb. From there it was kind of like I was falling into a big pit of lambs,” Autry said.

    Autry continued to show and jackpot lambs for 9 years after that, winning major titles from Champion Hampshire lamb, Reserve Champion Crossbred lamb, to third overall in Senior Showmanship.

    Autry has been involved in Paso Robles FFA since her freshman year, she but didn’t show her first two years. When Autry was a junior, she decided to show her lamb with Paso Robles FFA, winning her biggest award as Reserve Supreme Market Lamb.

    “I am beyond proud of Paige and her many accomplishments with her livestock projects.She is such a kind hearted, community centered, highly competitive young lady and I believe she will go far in her future, ” Theresa Clark said, who is PRHS’s Floral teacher and FFA Sheep advisor.

    Many people do not associate FFA with advanced dance, but Autry breaks down those barriers. Autry first got involved in dance in her sophomore year where she took beginning dance. Her love for dancing grew  and during the end of her junior year she auditioned for advanced dance.

    FFA and advanced dance aren’t the only things that Autry has grown to love. She has been involved in high school rodeo, varsity golf, and is  co-founder of the Conservative Club.

    Autry credits her passion for her activities to her parents, who have stood behind her throughout all her decisions.

    “There were times early in high school when watching her try and find her way was hard. But overall, she has navigated through this period of life with integrity, grace, and humility. Her dad and I are very proud of the challenges she’s overcome. We would advise her to never give up, stay the course, and know we are always here,” Carrie Autry, Autry’s mom, said.

    Autry’s goals continue as she pursues her dream to become a horse vet, specializing in legs and lameness. She is attending Cuesta College for two years to complete her general education before transferring to Colorado State.

    Señorita de los corderos

    Todos son capaces de reconocer a Paige Autry, no solo por su cabello dorado y sus brillantes ojos azules, sino también por su sonrisa contagiosa. Al participar en deportes, danza, y FFA, Autry ha causado una impresión en el personal y los estudiantes de PRHS que durarán toda la vida.

    Autry ha participado en muchas clases de ciencias a lo largo de su carrera en la escuela secundaria, desde Biología AP con la Sra. Ewing, Biología Marina con Jon-Paul Ewing, hasta Anatomía Animal con Amanda Gardner. Su amor por la ciencia provino de su amor por los animales. Autry comenzó a mostrar corderos para su grupo 4H cuando solo tenía 9 años.

    Autry continuó exhibiendo y ganando mucho dinero durante 9 años, luego de ganar los títulos principales de campeón de Hampshire Cordero, campeón de Cordero Reserve Crossbred, a la tercera posición general en Senior Showmanship. Autry estuvo involucrada en FFA de Paso Robles desde su primer año de bachillerato, pero no mostró sus primeros dos años.

    Cuando Autry era en su tercera año de bachillerato, decidió mostrar su cordero con Paso Robles FFA, ganando su mayor premio como Reserve Market Lamb Supremo.

    “Estoy más que orgullosa de Paige y sus muchos logros con sus proyectos ganaderos. Es una joven muy amable, centrada en la comunidad y altamente competitiva, y creo que llegará muy lejos en su futuro,” dijo Teresa Clark, la maestra de flores de Paso y asesora de ovejas de la FFA.
