A New Beginning Wednesday, October 12, 2011 By Sara Keith
Kaylee Reeves (BHS Class of 2011) was very smart, a well liked person and very athletic. She was one of the greatest cousins and I am very proud of her. During my freshman year, I walked into my Journalism class and there Kaylee was. She helped me all year, and then she graduated. Because I saw her everyday in class, it feels really weird with her not being here and not sitting right next to me in school anymore. Reeves is now going to college. “I go to Blinn Community College, with full intensions transfer to Texas A&M University, ” she said. “I grew up loving the Texas A&M University traditions and campus and we have had family friends go there." Reeves would like to start her own business and that’s what she is dreaming about. "I am majoring in business and management, so once I graduate I plan to be a successful business woman,” Reeves said. College is very different than high school in many ways, especially the professors, the teachers and the classes. “College definitely challenges your self discipline! There is a lot, I mean a lot, of work to do outside of class. But then again you don’t have to go to class seven hours a day and five days a week!” Reeves said. Reeves was really close with her sister senior Rozlyn Reeves and misses having family around. “If your having a crappy day it makes it so much harder to not be around your family, like my cousin in Journalism class,” Reeves said. "You can't just be around your family everyday; you can only see them holidays but it's just not the same thing. Kaylee was really close with her sister senior Rozlyn Reeves. “It's so sad (because) every morning when I wake up and see my adjoining bathrooms and her (Kaylee's )door is always shut and her room is like empty so it is horrible," Rozlyn said. "Now I'm left with stealing some of my brother's stuff because Kaylee took all of hers. She was like my best friend and now the only person I have to talk to is Joe.Reeves, Class of 2014) and that just doesn’t work!” When people go off to college, especially family, it’s just way different. The bond between two sisters and the bond between cousins remains strong and it will never be broken.
