Due to his passion for tumbling, Mr. Kyle Tammen, now a Spanish teacher, was encouraged by his parents to do gymnastics when he was in the sixth grade. His passion led him to success, and later to competitive cheerleading in college.
Julia Beasley ’16 may just be a teenager, but she’s already established herself in the world of politics and human rights.
Beasley is one of just a few seniors who graduated in December rather than May. But instead of spending her second semester relaxing at home, she has done anything but that.

Saturday night is usually not a time of relaxation and time with family for Mr. Kevin Keena; he usually spends his weekend evenings playing gigs in his band. In addition to being an Instructional Technology Specialist at Heritage, Keena plays drums, and taught as a band teacher for a total of sixteen years, eleven of them at our school.
Marleena Trail ’16 has always loved snakes. A few years ago she joined the Zoological Discovery Center, run by Mrs. Karen Green. Now she is a junior board member and they have turned a small business into a major exhibit.
Though both advisory experiences are different, they both have relatively the same core values, comradery and hard work, two things which Heritage is all about.
