Picture of Kya Baker

Kya Breeann Baker was born on January 4, 2005. She is the daughter of Jeremey and Erica Baker and Monica Muehlfelt. She has six siblings Levi Muehlfelt, Mila Plain, Kaylynn Baker, Alayna Baker, Emma Milam, and Caiden Milam. One word she would use to describe herself is determined. Kya is involved in Beta, FBLA, and Pep Club. Her favorite teacher is Mrs. Stegeman, because she is a genuine person who cares about her students' well-being. “She is always there for me for everything from schoolwork to letting me rant and giving advice.” Her favorite high school memory was all the Beta and FBLA competitions she has attended throughout her high school years. On the other hand, her most embarrassing high school memory is when one day after school her car alarm wouldn’t go off.

Kya believes her biggest accomplishment in life so far is, “I think my biggest accomplishment thus far has been stepping out of my comfort zone and putting myself out there to get involved.” When Kya was little, she wanted to either be a teacher or an archaeologist. Now Kya plans to attend MAC or St. Louis Community college to pursue a degree in Dental Hygiene or Diagnostic Medical Sonography. Kya said, “I have mixed emotions. I am both excited and nervous for the next chapter.” The thing she will miss most about high school is seeing all of her friends and teachers smiling faces every day. Kya’s advice to underclassmen is, “Try your best, but at the same time don't let high school slip by without having fun.”

Kya would like to give a shoutout to Kayla, Maddie, Jaleigh, My parents, Dalton, Steg, and Mrs. Brumfield.
