Emma Taylor

This has been a minute, but here’s Kilgore’s Emma Taylor (on the right) leading a race at a track meet in Bullard, with teammate Zoe Craven (left) on the outside. This photo originally listed Emma as a senior; she's actually a junior, and the News Herald apologizes for the mistake. Still, the News Herald is offering senior athletes in our coverage area — not just KHS — to be featured in our Senior Spotlight. Fill out the questionnaire in this story and e-mail it to sports editor Mitch Lucas, in the provided e-mail address. (File photo by MICHAEL HAMPTON)

Kilgore High School and the city of Kilgore made a joint announcement on Thursday that the KHS seniors are being honored all this month.

The News Herald would love to participate.

So we are renewing our call, to you, seniors, for you to be featured here in the News Herald’s sports section in our Senior Spotlight.

If you are a senior athlete, including cheerleaders or Hi-Steppers, we’re asking you to fill out the questionnaire below, and send it, along with a photo of yourself, to mlucas@kilgorenewsherald.com. It’s first-come, first serve, but there’s no charge, and we’ll run every single one we get.

And this isn’t just for Kilgore High School seniors. It’s for any senior athlete that attends one of the schools in the News Herald’s coverage area. So, Sabine, West Rusk, Overton, Leverett’s Chapel and East Texas Christian School, you’re all eligible.

Here’s the questionnaire.

Your name

Your parents’ names

Brothers and sisters names

Sports you play

Favorite high school sports memory

Plans after high school

Your role models

Which coaches have had the most influence on you, and why

Your favorite teacher

Where do you see yourself in 10 years

Something about yourself that most people don’t know

What will you miss most about high school sports

We’ve featured 11 senior athletes so far, and we want you to be included. Fill it out, and send it in.
