MiaRose King

College Choice: Quinnipiac University
Major: Criminal Justice

Since she was three years old, MiaRose King has loved gymnastics. She has been diligently practicing and competing since age eight and with several championships under her belt, she has earned a full athletic scholarship to Quinnipiac University where she will compete on the acrobatics and tumbling team. In addition to her schoolwork at McGehee, MiaRose is this year’s Editor-in-Chief of the Spectator (yearbook) and that keeps her exceptionally busy. Her favorite tradition lies ahead of her. “My favorite McGehee tradition is definitely how we do our graduation. I love how our graduation is unlike the traditional cap and gown ceremony, and we wear light pink dresses. It is nice to see what dress everyone picks; I love how everyone looks!”
