The Youth Performance Award winner for December is Felicity Spicer, a senior at Grant County High School.

Spicer, 17, is the daughter of Chrissy and Phil Williams of Crittenden.

Her class schedule this year includes AP English, chamber choir, pre-calculus, accounting, entrepreneurship, journalism and sociology.

AP English is Spicer’s favorite class because she loves to write.

“I wanted to research the way people communicate and I love to write,” said Spicer. “I believe writing is a way you could touch people’s hearts and that is something that I try and set out to do.”

Spicer is not partial to one particular teacher. “I really have been blessed with great teachers every year,” she said.

Spicer is involved with the National Honor Society, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and she was chosen as this year’s homecoming queen. Over the summe,r she was also a Governor’s Scholar at Bellarmine University.

“I was the only one from Grant County High School to go to Bellarmine, so I was there by myself, I loved it though,” said Spicer. “I majored in creative writing and literary studies, that explains why English is my favorite.”

Spicer takes on many activities outside of school as well. She travels to her different ministries with her mom where she sings at nursing homes and jails.

“I love to sing,” said Spicer. “I have been singing since I was 3 years old.”

She also volunteers a lot and after school she teaches math to a home school student.

In the spare time that Spicer has, she spends it with her parents.

“I love spending time with my mom, she is my best friend. I could sit home and watch movies with my mom all day and never miss a beat,” said Spicer. “I really do have great parents. The only reason I’m the way I am today is because of my parents and most importantly God.”

After she graduates from high school, Spicer plans on attending Northern Kentucky University where she will major in Christian ministry and pharmacy.

Spicer lives her life from a quote from the movie “Monster In-Law” and that is she never wants to live the same day twice.

“I love teaching, I love singing, I love medicine, I love Christian ministry and different things, so I just want to keep going to college and do it as much as I can, so I can say I am not going to live the same day twice,” said Spicer.
