Senior Spotlight Nayelli Avila

Date Posted: Monday, January 27, 2020


Senior Nayelli Avila began attending school in the Knippa District in the 7th grade. Playing on the tennis team, traveling with the tennis team, and going to state have been some of her fondest experiences. Avila has been active in tennis, track, basketball, and volleyball during her years at Knippa. She is currently the senior class representative, and enjoys playing the piano in her free time. Some accomplishments that Avila has achieved include getting inducted in the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and competing on the state level in tennis. Additionally, Avila has been voted by the student body as homecoming duchess and princess while in high school. Avila will miss singing in the car with Nikki (Layne) on the way to school every morning. Her funniest experience has been Diego (Esquivel) lip syncing to songs on the radio while in Mr. King’s class. Getting a degree in business from UTSA is a goal for Avila after graduation. Her plans also include travel and, eventually, starting a family. Avila’s only piece of advice for students is to try not overload yourself and make time for yourself.
