    How did SUSD prepare you for success?

    "SUSD prepared me for success by allowing me to thrive in my own unique way. I am so thankful for all of the art teachers who really helped foster my creativity, while also allowing me to grow in other ways. I think the arts are just as important as math, English and science. My well-rounded education at the SUSD schools allowed me to pursue my marketing degree, which I use every day as a real estate broker."


Kaitlyn Moorehead

  • Undergraduate student, W.A. Franke College of Business, Northern Arizona University

    Industry: Business & Financial Services

    SUSD Schools Attended:

    Cheyenne Traditional School, Desert Mountain High School

    Graduated: 2019

    How did SUSD prepare you for success?

    "I attended Cheyenne Traditional School for the first decade years of my life (Kindergarten-8th grade), which set me up for success. I liked wearing uniforms, the elevated grading scale, and the high standards I was held to. Cheyenne prepared me by pushing myself beyond my known limits, improve my time management skills, and form intentional relationships with teachers. After Cheyenne, I attended Desert Mountain High School, where I was exposed to eye-opening experiences. I continued to work hard, and managed school, varsity tennis, a part-time job, and a social life. I decided to attend NAU because I wanted a change of scenery and climate, different culture, and size. I earned dual enrollment credit in high school and credit it to SUSD because I am graduating a year early. Upon graduation in May, I will ship out to Basic Training, as I have joined the U.S. Army in hopes of becoming an officer."
