Picture of Celesse Englehart

Celesse Gwyn Englehart was born on August 30, 2003. She is the daughter of Becky and Trey Wiginton. She has one sibling, Dillard Englehart. Celesse is involved in FCCLA, FBLA, FFA, Beta, Yearbook, Pep Club, and Color Guard. She is also part of the Woodland High School Cheerleading team. Her favorite teachers are Mrs. Johnson and Coach Pinkard. Purple is her favorite color, and her favorite food is Mexican.

When Celesse was younger, she wanted to be Hannah Montana. When she graduates, she plans to attend SEMO to become a teacher. Her favorite High School memory is all the homecoming weeks the Class of 2022 won. She specifically mentions when Landon bleached his head to look like Eminem. She recalls her most embarrassing memory, “Callie and I rapped to judges at Beta Nationals Junior year, ‘Ready Set Beta.” The thing she will miss most about High School is hanging out with her best friend Callie and talking to Lilley every morning before school. When asked about her thoughts about graduating, Celesse said she is sad but excited for the next chapter in her life. Her advice to underclassmen is to be confident in yourself and don’t care what people think about you. Don’t stress yourself out over the little things and enjoy all the opportunities and no responsibility while you can. It will be gone before you know it. Her biggest accomplishment is getting accepted into SEMO. The person who has had the greatest influence on her life is her Mom. “My mom has shown me to fight hard for what you want in life and to always love others.”

Celesse would like to give her shoutout “To my mom and dad, for always supporting me and loving me. To my grandparents for always being a light in my life. To my little brother for all the karaoke in the car, coffee runs, and a shoulder to cry on. To my boyfriend for being so good to me and for all the Mexican food. Selena and Lilley for making me laugh until I cry. Last, to my best friend Callie for being my other half and never giving up on me.”
