Making JV cheer her freshman year, Kyla Bratcher has plans to study at Tennessee State University and continue her passion for sports.

Bratcher plans to apply her personal understanding of being an athlete as a cheerleader and track runner to her college career where she aspires to major in physical therapy and minor in sports management.

Loving her freshman year, Bratcher reminisces on her time at Webster. “ I loved freshman year only because I got to go to school with my sister, and I made JV cheer. Also, classes were easy.”

Bratcher spent her high school years doing cheer and running track, but that isn’t all she’s been a part of. She was also a participant in Mx. Webster, where she was a runner up along with senior Corvin Haake, and she’s been active with Webster Challenge and Students as Allies.

About clubs and activities Bratcher wished she’d have participated in, “Definitely STUCO, I wish I did more with school and with planning events, also feminist club though because I love uplifting women.”

“I’ll miss the environment of Webster and miss the school spirit, but I’m pretty confident I’ll make a smooth transition,” Bratcher said.

“Freshman you, I would tell myself to join more clubs and definitely trust your better judgment and stay positive even though there are negative people around you,” Bratcher said.

Ready to embark on the next steps of her life with four years of school ahead of her, Bratcher’s final plans are to be “all tatted up” by the time she returns to Webster.
