Claire Beary

College Choice: The University of Tennessee
Major: Finance

This McGehee senior bubbles over with spirit and enthusiasm. As the School Pro Tem, Claire wears a lot of hats and perhaps costumes, such as that of Louise the Hawk. She raises school spirit at sporting events, assemblies, Spirit Day and much more and she can’t wait to get into the “Volunteers” spirit at the University of Tennessee in the fall. Claire credits history teacher Ms. Thompson with being “the most influential person throughout my time at McGehee. She has supported all of my dreams and is the reason that I am so confident and well prepared for college.”
