Becca Pritchett is a senior at DGS and the Head Copy Editor for the Blueprint. She is on the varsity cheerleading team and has been since her sophomore year. She loves helping others and is involved in many activities in her school and community, some of which include: Snowball, Mad Dash, Peer Led Life Skills and Snowflake.

In her free time, Pritchett loves spending time with her friends and family. She loves taking her Bernese mountain dog, Finn, on walks and enjoys being outside. Pritchett loves going out for ice cream and going on drives with her friends. She also loves babysitting and working with children. She expresses this by working with middle school students in the surrounding areas through the Peer Led Life Skills teaching program run by the Downers Grove Township.

Pritchett isn’t sure where she would like to attend college, but is currently looking at Hawaii Pacific University, the University of North Carolina Wilmington, the University of Florida and North Carolina State University. She would like to study biology and either be a marine biologist or work with genetics. She has always been interested in the sciences and has taken more science courses than necessary to graduate through her years at DGS.
