Waverly High School
Waverly High School
A leader on and off the court, this scholar-athlete strives to improve herself each and every day.
As a freshman on her varsity basketball team, Megan Foster benefited from the guidance and support of the senior players. But sophomore year, she was the only returning starter. “After the first practice, I realized how different it was. I knew had to become a leader for our team so we can be a better team together.” Megan became the point guard that year and stepped into the leadership position gracefully, becoming the player everyone looked to for solutions and motivation to win games, especially when they were playing from behind.
The experience helped Megan hone her leadership skills, which she has put to use in countless ways both on and off the court. She is captain of her basketball, track and field, and volleyball teams, and she serves as class president. She leads her school’s chapter of the National Honor Society as well as the Future Christian Athletes organization. In each of these roles, and in every academic, athletic, and community service endeavor she undertakes, Megan relentlessly pushes herself to give her all. “I set high expectations and standards for myself. (They) drive me every day to be better than I was yesterday.”
This attitude has helped Megan achieve countless accolades including mastering test-taking strategies in order to achieve a near-perfect GPA while excelling in her honors courses and dual-credit classes. In athletics, it has driven her to set five school records in track and field and two in volleyball, earn all-state status in all three of her sports, and help her basketball team win the state championship in 2017, making school history. “Winning made me feel that that we accomplished our biggest goal for our team, for our fans, and for the Waverly community. I will never forget all the long practices and hours spent on the weekend it took to achieve the biggest goal of my life.”
“Everyone needs someone to look up to, and you should always try to be that someone.”
