Ashly Melody | Metamora Township High School Class of 2019 senior pictures

September 20, 2018

Meet the  bubbly, happy, beautiful, Class of 2019 senior from Metamora Township High School, Ashly Melody!!   Her sweet personality is contagious!!  I can’t help but smile when I think about how much fun it was to photograph this girl!   And I get to do it all of the time because Ash is one of my beloved Shelby Seniors this year.   Just a little peak into her beautiful heart: “I am most proud of myself for learning to put the positive (no matter how small those parts are) ahead of the negative. I will always try my best not to let one negative part of my day ruin the whole picture.”

After high school, Ashly plans on attending college to study Public Relations and Communications.   She is involved in Cheerleading, Track, Student Council, Prom Committee, Homecoming Committee, and she loves running road races, going out with friends, and hanging out with her boyfriend. Her favorite high school teacher is Mrs. keister because she loves creating art and “she not only taught me 3D art but also everything I know about Black and White Photography and dark room developing which I very much enjoyed!”  Advice to incoming freshman: “Stay out of drama and stay involved it will make high school so much more enjoyable.”

Ashly would describe her “perfect day” as a super hot temperature, sitting poolside with a good book and a yummy smoothie!
