Tinisha Rose Quintana is the daughter of Richard and Eileen Quintana.  She is Navajo/Ute and is a senior at Maple Mountain High School. Her friends describe her as crazy, “savage,” funny and friendly.  In her free time she likes to do art, play strategy games and sports.  Her favorite sports are soccer and lacrosse.  And her favorite subject in school is Art. Jethro Gillespie has been an awesome art mentor for her.  She was able to show a piece in the High School Art Show at the Springville Museum of Art this past winter.

When asked about shows she enjoys, she quickly said, Straight Outta Compton and Teen Wolf.  Foods that Tinisha would choose as her favorites are pizza, tres leches and cookies.  Her favorite color is turquoise.  

A memorable time in high school was when she was able to go to New York.  One thing on her bucket list is to travel, especially out of the country.  Maybe her art gift will help her reach this goal.  She plans on going to college at Utah Valley University.  Her favorite quote is, “Real eyes, realize, real lies.” Tinisha has a bright future in front of her with a firm support system in place.  Go get ‘em Tinisha.

Meet Raven Billie, a senior at Maple Mountain High School.  Raven is Navajo/Caucasian.  She is the daughter of Natalie and Monte Billie.  Her friends describe her as funny, shy and athletic. She loves to play soccer and is very good at it.  Soccer is her favorite sport.  She hopes to go into the medical field, maybe that's why her favorite TV show is Grey's Anatomy.  Raven likes all kinds of foods but sushi.  Her color of choice is sea foam green.

Raven can't wait to graduate and begin college at Utah Valley University.  Her favorite part of high school was lunch when she could visit with friends and have fun.  One item on her bucket list is she wants to be in a street race.  (Wear your seat belt Raven and don't forget your helmet!)  Her favorite quote is, "If the world was perfect, it wouldn't be". by Yogi Berra.  We wish Raven lots of good times, great opprotunites and many more memories. We are proud of you!
