My name is Jamie Ricketts, and I am a graduating senior from New Deal High School. I will be valedictorian, a distinguished graduate, and a STEM graduate of my class with a 4.0 GPA. In my high school career, I have been NHS President, Prom Committee President, and Class Vice President, as well as participating in varsity basketball, varsity cheerleading, varsity track, band, and UIL academics. In basketball, I have earned Newcomer of the year, All-District two consecutive years, and All-Region post district honors. In band, I was an All Region Honors Band flutist as well as an All-State competitor in both solo and an ensemble in my freshman and sophomore years. Next year I will be attending Texas Tech University as a full time student, however, my major is still undecided.
