Hi, my name is Kaitlyn Dalby.  I am a senior here at Foran and I am a staff writer for journalism.  In my spare time, I enjoy going to the beach and going out to get food with my friends.  Last year, I was part of the cheerleading team, but this year I am only playing tennis in the spring.  I am a part of Key Club where I volunteer at elementary schools to get hours.
