Barbara Collins
Barbara Collins is a senior at DGS. This year she is one of the online co-editor-in-chief of the Blueprint.

Collins enjoys being a captain of the DGS girls varsity tennis team, and has played on the team for four years. She is involved in Earth Action Club, P.E Leading and National Honors Society.

Collins keeps herself busy with schoolwork; this year she is enrolled in AP Statistics, Calculus BC and AP Environmental Science. When she isn't at school or playing tennis, you can find Collins studying, watching trashy reality TV shows or hanging out with her friends.

Collins is considering pursuing a major in business and communications. Currently, she hopes to attend University of Michigan or University of Washington.
