Senior Spotlight: Chloe Foust
By Nadia Jackson
Chloe Foust’s high school experience has certainly been a unique one. Prior to her junior year, she opted to enroll in concurrent enrollment at CSU-Pueblo full time, which has given her a unique perspective into what college life and beyond will be like.
Concurrent enrollment has helped ease Foust’s transition from high school to college and opened a world of perspectives to gain. Rather than being around the same people all the time, she says she enjoys the freedom her schedule gives her to meet new people, and understand what truly bonds quality friendships.
Throughout high school, Foust remained connected with the school community through involvement in National Honors Society, Italian National Honors Society, Girl Up, and most significantly, Girl’s Cabinet.
Within the community, Foust is heavily involved in the Sangre de Cristo School of Dance company, devoting 25+ hours a week dancing a variety of genres and rehearsing for upcoming shows. As a dancer, Foust has earned many principal roles including Sugarplum Fairy and Snow Queen in The Nutcracker and Alice in Alice in Wonderland.
Foust also devotes time to teaching younger students at the School of Dance. She hopes to inspire the young dancers and ignite a passion within them for the arts while maintaining a positive atmosphere.
Looking back on her years in high school, she states some of her best memories stemmed from the traditions deeply rooted in Centennial’s history such as Bell Bash and Bell Game. She additionally looks back fondly on the community service opportunities Girl’s Cabinet has offered her and the simplistic moments with friends people often take for granted.
As the end of her senior year approaches, she feels content in her decision to continue attending CSU-P, double majoring in sociology and psychology.
After earning her bachelor’s degree she plans on attending graduate school in order to receive a master’s degree in psychology and eventually become a licensed professional counselor.
Reflecting on the past four years, Chloe Foust finds that she's grown both academically, through her improvement in time management and multitasking, but also personally through the change in mindset to pursue what she’s passionate about, rather than being limited by what other people expect from her.
Foust states she will certainly miss some of the friendships she has made throughout high school, but is ultimately optimistic for her future.
