AYSHA ROBERTS: Hoops, favorite teachers and making memories

Hannah Lovett and Molly Garud

As she heads into the final weeks of her journey at Stratford, senior Aysha Roberts has many memories of the school where she began as a pre-K student.

From winning the region tournament this year to scoring 19 points in the second half of the state tournament, many of those memories have come on the basketball court.

This year, as the only senior, she knew she would have lots of fun leading the team. She was nervous, but also knew that the juniors would help when she needed it. Now that basketball season has ended, Aysha is playing her final season of soccer. 

She said her favorite teacher at Stratford is Spanish teacher Mr. Ben  McClain because he is a fun teacher and she enjoys being around him.  Also, Aysha cherished her time in Freshman English with Dr. Frank Katz. She said it was her all-time favorite class at Stratford.

However, if she could shadow anyone for a day at Stratford it would be math teacher Mr. Griff Ethridge because she said he is funny, sweet, and unpredictable.

As Aysha’s time at Stratford is winding down, she wishes she could go back to her freshman year, because the schoolwork was easier and she would have a full four years left at Stratford.

This year, “Senioritis” has been very contagious and hit has hit Aysha hard. She offered some advice for rising seniors.

“Senioritis is real, so remember to stay on top of your work,” she said. “But still have fun because it is you last year at Stratford.”

Additionally, Aysha is excited about attending college, but she said she will miss everything about Stratford because she feels this is her second home.

Along with many other students, her favorite hobbies are sleeping and watching Netflix. Her favorite FLIK food is the tasty lasagna.

Throughout her high school career, she has contributed to many volunteer programs. Her most eye- opening experience was when you helped out at the Middle Georgia Community Food Bank. 

This fall, Aysha will be attending Georgia College & State University in Milledgeville. She plans to major in early childhood education.
