“I feel that God is just calling me to do this.” senior Katy Jones said.

Katy Jones, daughter of Craig and Michelle Jones and Jeanie and Dave Caselman, has lived in Earth her entire life. Her family has been raised to support the Red Raiders, and in a few months, she plans to head to Texas Tech University to keep the family tradition alive. She wants to graduate from TTU, obtain a degree in Psychology and then pursue a career in Christian Counseling. Katy also participates in multiple extracurricular activities. 

“I participate in One Act Play, stock showing, livestock judging, FFA quiz, FFA chapter conducting, National Honor Society, and UIL.” Katy said. 

Katy is a key character in the One Act Play, which exhibits her leadership roles.

“Katy is our lead character in our Fall Show playing a Jewish girl hiding during World War II,” OAP Director Cassi Furr said.  “She is a senior and the most experienced in the group.” 

She enjoys her time at school and spending time with her friends.

“My favorite thing is being with my friends,” Katy said.  “I like to socialize with people.” 

Katy’s love for socializing has pushed her in the Christian Counseling direction. 

“I plan on going to Texas Tech and majoring in psychology,” Katy said. “And eventually become a Christian counselor or a school psychologist.” 

Katy has a lot of people rooting for her, especially Mrs. Cassi Furr. 

“I know she wants to be a counselor, and I think she definitely has that it in her,” Furr said. “She is such a caring person, and she’s got the determination to do that.” 

After she graduates from Texas Tech, she plans on moving to Abilene to get a degree in counseling, specifically Christian Counseling.

“I really want to move to Abilene and go to school at Abilene Christian University,” Katy said. “Or even Hardin-Simmons and get my Christian Counseling degree.”

If Christian Counseling doesn’t work in her favor, she would enjoy being a school counselor.

“I am very, very, very interested in going the Christian counseling route,” Katy said. “But if something changes, I wouldn’t mind being a school counselor, either way I want to stay in the counseling realm.”

To her, the world is broken lately, and she feels its her job to change that.

“Not a lot of people know God like they used to,” Katy said. “And I wanna help people with their walk with God.”
