Senior Spotlight: Macayla Enman

Emma Johnson, Public relations manager

One of Macayla Enman’s, senior, fondest memories of high school was getting the chance to attend every single football and baseball game. She liked it not only because she got to take pictures and cheer on her team. She also gained insight into the games and the players’ thoughts.
“I got to talk to players and know exactly what was going through their heads before, during and after the games,” Enman said.
Enman said despite the stay-at-home order, she has kept busy.
“I know that we’re supposed to be quarantined but I don’t want to. I have watched a lot of Netflix and Disney-plus, I go for walks and runs all the time, I have done a lot of online shopping. I have also been getting ready for college: cleaning out a room and packing stuff up,” Enman said.
She said she doesn’t think she will really miss high school because she looks forward to the new opportunities and challenges she will face.
“I’m moving on. High school has been a great time but it is just a chapter in a book. I’m ready to begin my life and make new memories and have fun,” Enman said.
Her inspiration to pursue a career in athletic training occurred during her junior year, when she was on the sideline of a football game taking pictures. A player hurt his ankle and trainer John was busy.
“He asked me to wrap it for him even though I definitely had no idea what I was doing. At that moment I just kind of fell in love with whatever I was doing and I knew right then and there that’s what I wanted to do for the rest of my life,” she said.
Enman plans to go into athletic training and a double major with nutrition and wellness at Butler Community College and then Adams State University.
“I decided not to go to Adams State first because I wanted to be able to get a lot of hands-on experience my first two years so I know exactly what I’m doing,” Enman said.
