My name is Kayla, I’m 3rd year here at piedmont university. I’m a mass compaction major as well. Some things I love to do in my free time include. Swimming, dancing, singing, and reading. I’ve been swimming since I was 6 years old it’s always been my favorite thing to do. I have a total of 13 older siblings than me and one younger.

My favorite color is yellow, I have a bad obsession with the color yellow. I like to think I have a bubbly personality, I try to always smile and be nice key work here is that I try. Some goals I have for myself is to graduate and to get a new car before the year is up. Growing up I was raised more on the town boy side, sometimes I suspect my dad wanted me to be a boy.

Below you will see a picture of me where I felt like I was actually making moves in my life.

Anddddddddddddddddd that’s me

Chicago pizza is not only a restaurant, they work together to make a family.  

“The atmosphere there is amazing, you know I really like their menus and how they are set up, I just saw it when I was driving past, and I was like I really need to go and check them out it looks nice, and turns out I was right,” said sophomore mcom major Ella Cain. 

According to their website, Rudy and Carlos of this establishment, had several years of experience working in successful pizzerias in Chicago and made the decision to open a small, carry out and delivery restaurant in Clarksville, in 2005.” They stated on their website “Barely in our twenties, it was intimidating to start something from scratch,” “We barely survived the first couple of years we were open, never having more than three employees at a time, ourselves included. But that just made us more driven.” 

Pizza isn’t the only thing served at Chicago “I love their salad, they have a really good ranch dressing that I love, and you can’t pass up, they also have this garlic bread that is really good, and my favorite pizza would have to be the white pizza. I get it every time I go there, I never pass nor the pizza or salad up,” said Cain.     

“Their pizza is really good Chicago has always been known to have some of the best pizza so I was surprised when I went there and it was Fantastic, I would most definitely recommend the restaurant to anybody who has ever been. My favorite thing to get from their menu is the baked lasagna and a personal cheese pizza. It is literally to die for,” said sophomore nursing major Grace Beasley.  

Summer Colston employee of Chicago’s Pizza said the family atmosphere has drawn her to the restaurant “Chicago’s seems like a good place to work. It is very close to my home, and it is privately owned, which is something I prefer compared to a corporation. Colston has a recommendation for her favorite dish which is the chicken pesto pizza. The atmosphere is so nice, and all the workers are absolute sweethearts.” 

 “Even though I’ve only been here for a short amount of time, I cannot see myself leaving this place any time soon.”

For Dr, Aretha Ketch, Piedmont is all about family.  

 Born and raised in Habersham County, she was a natural fit, although her first appointment was not in her field. “Actually, I began working at Piedmont in the music department, because there were no openings in the chemistry department.” 

Both of Ketch’s parents are Piedmont alumni, and her daughter also attends Piedmont. Ketch knew she wanted to be a teacher since she was a child.  

“Since I was a little girl, I’ve always wanted to be a teacher, “she said.” When I was little, I would play teacher and students with my dolls. For 25 years I have been teaching, I took a little break when my kids were born, and I returned and got straight back into It.  

Chemistry was not her first choice, though Ketch took a tour of all the sciences before settling on chemistry.“I started out as a biology major, because I thought I wanted to do a pre-med, but I decided I didn’t want to do pre-med and I was really interested in physics. I took a chemistry class and I really loved it, so it stuck with me. So that’s how I became a chemistry teacher “. 

Ketch loves teaching chemistry at Piedmont University. She loves the small school and the dynamic of a small college. Dr.Ketch says that “I’m happy Here”

There are many things that I feel passionate about, my family will always be something that holds most of my passion. Family means everything to me, my father and I are so close he’s like my best friend. In the picture below you see my best friend Cash he is my 2 years old baby who I love very much.

Some hobbies I like to do include reading, swimming, hanging with my friends. Swimming is a sport I have been doing since the tender age of 6 years old. I have swum all my life up until recently last year I stopped. Reading has always kind of been an escape for me, sometimes when things at home got really bad I would read. It gave me a chance to escape this reality.

Throughout my life Reading and swimming have always kept me sane. At age 13 I learned that I have a skin disease and the color of my skin changed, it was really hard and reading helped a lot with it.

I am turning 20 in a month or so and I’m old enough to decide to stop getting treatments for it. I’m a sophomore and my major is in mass communications. I want to be a news broadcast analysis after I graduate and I am hoping media wearing helps prepare me for everything I need to know for my chosen career.
