Senior Spotlight


Madalyn Berry, Reporter

Camille Ball, is an inspiring senior at John Adams High School. Through her busy schedule, she takes college courses at Ivy tech, high school courses at Adams all in addition to extracurricular activities and jobs! In her extracurriculars, Ball is the cheer captain at Adams and has been cheering all four years as well as a member of show choir for three years, partaking in many solos. She was also an active member in the African American History Challenge for two years and the African Student Association for one year. Through the Career and Technical Education (CTE) program, Ball will receive her Associates degree in general studies from Ivy Tech. She will also be receiving the Academic and Technical Honors Diploma when she graduates high school.
As an eighteen year old, Ball was born and raised in South Bend. Outside of school her hobbies include traveling and volunteering. She also works after school hours at Dairy Queen. Ball is in the Human and Social Services CTE program, and from that class she has learned that not everybody’s story is the same, and that listening is the most valuable skill a person can have. From going to Ivy Tech she has learned that college is really hard, but getting a head start on the workload and environment will really help her in the long run when going to college. Ball also enjoys the dual credit of the program because she is able to knock out high school and college classes in one class.
Her favorite memory in high school is all the Friday night games, shows, and competitions that she has been a part of over the past four years. Ball’s plans after high school are to go to a four year college for music therapy and seeking to join a practice as a music therapist for children with disabilities. Advice she would like to give for underclassmen would be to take school as seriously as possible, but also make sure you give yourself time to do mental health check ups so that you don’t burn out easily.
