Kaily Whittles | East Peoria Community High School | Class of 2021

August 21, 2020

Meet Class of 2021 senior, Kaily Whittles from East Peoria High School!

Kaily has so many awesome attributes.. funny, outgoing, beautiful, sassy, caring, love-able, and she is going to be a fabulous nurse some day!  Her goal is to follow her momma’s footsteps and go into nursing school after high school. She has the cutest little sister, named Tommy who is absolutely adorable and the way that Tommy looks up to her big sister melts my heart!

Like many of her peers, starting her senior year looks a little different this year, but the activities that she participates in include Link Crew, Yearbook, and Cheerleading.  Outside of school, she babysits and spends a lot of her time with her friends and boyfriend.  She loves laying out and tanning in the summer and playing Madden on the Xbox.

Kaily’s favorite teacher is her History teacher, Mr. Green because, “he tells it like it is.  My favorite class is Human Anatomy because I enjoy learning about how the human body works.”

I love her advice to new freshman: Always be yourself and don’t change to try and “fit in”

A moment I am most proud of “I passed my accuplacer test so i can take my dual credit classes this year.”

My “perfect day” would be described like this: On my perfect day I would eat a plain waffle for breakfast. Next, I would shower and get ready. Then i would either go to the park with my sister and have a picnic and play or go to chick-fil-a. then i would go home hangout with friends and if i lived on the beach, go and take pictures at sunset.”

Three things on my bucket list include traveling the world, skydiving, and becoming a nurse!
