Lillyann Clark, commonly known as Lilly, is a Junior at Santaluces High School and balances out all her extracurriculars while taking AICE and AP classes. Lilly is both a Varsity Cheerleader and a Varsity Swimmer here at Santaluces.

In cheer, Lilly is either a base or a flyer, and for swimming she swims the 50 meter or 100 meter. Her goal for cheer is to get better and throw better tumbling skills; for swimming, she wants to get a faster time. Lilly joined cheer because she has been doing cheer for all of her life and it’s what she enjoyed the most. She also has always had a passion for cheer and it has genuinely brought so much joy into her life. She joined swimming because she loves being in the water and loves to swim.

Lilly aspires to be a Pediatric Nurse and would love to attend either Florida State University (FSU) or University of Central Florida (UCF). She wants to continue playing and participating in either sports in college.

In Lilly’s free time, she goes to the beach, work, and hangs out with friends. Her job is being a lifeguard at her community pool.

I asked Lilly if she had any advice and this is what she had to say. “If I have advice for a student, then it would be to stay focused and determined on school and your future and to never give up on yourself even when things get rough!”
