Kierra Evans is all about Wellborn High.

While Evans has played volleyball and basketball for the school, she also has served on the student council all four years of high school. This year, the senior is the vice president.

Evans lists her top two hobbies as the work that comes with being the VP and also volunteering, which is one thing she’s done with student council.

She said right now the organization is working to buy Christmas gifts for less fortunate students.

Aside from those two hobbies, Evans said she likes to hang out with her friends and watch TV, most notably MTV’s hit show “Catfish.”

As for sports, she said she prefers playing volleyball because of the intensity. The left-hander is a middle hitter for the Panthers.

Recently, she took time out of warming up with the team to sit down with Anniston Star sports writer Brandon Miller and kill 10 questions.

Question: What made you want to play volleyball?

Answer: My friend, Kaybriana Barnes, and I weren’t doing much at school so we just decided to pick something up. Then we fell in love with it.

Q: What do you like the most about fall?

A: Football season. I go to all the football games. I really like when the crowd gets rowdy and it gets the boys going and then to see how they play.

Q: Who’s your best friend, and how did you meet?

A: Tymeria Mackey. We met in first grade when she moved from another school. We really cool at first, but by the sixth grade we were really close. She’s the president of student council so we have that, too.

Q: What’s the best thing about Wellborn High?

A: The community is like a family. If someone talks about us everyone is going to back us up. You cannot talk bad about our school.

Q: Has there been a volleyball match this season that stands out to you?

A: Probably games that we lost that we could have won. The Pleasant Valley game is one. When we played Saks in the county tournament we could have beat them, and also White Plains in their tournament.

Q: What’s your favorite song?

A: Anything by Rich Homie Quan. I love his whole CD. I can’t pick a favorite.

Q: If you could play another sport, what would it be?

A: Softball. Coach (Brenda) Vinson is the coach, they have fantastic players and they’re a really good team. I’m thinking about playing this year.

Q: Do you prefer home games or away games?

A: Home. You’re in your territory and you can’t lose in your territory. It just doesn’t feel right.

Q: Who is the most inspirational person to you?

A: Oprah. She started from like … I don’t want to say the bottom, because I’m not Drake. But she didn’t get things handed to her. She worked for everything. And she has a lot of money.

Q: What do you want to do after graduation?

A: I want to go to JSU for four years and study psychology or anthropology because I want to see how everyone’s mind works.
