Former Ennis Lionette teaching others
The Ellis County Press
ENNIS- A former Ennis High School Lionette was selected as a volunteer instructor for the Summer Youth Arts Camp sponsored by Inspiration Inc.
Breauna Nichole McCoy, an Ennis native, became active in church at a young age.
At the age of 13, McCoy wanted to try out for the high school dance team but had to wait a year.
Unfortunately, she didn’t make it her first try so she decided to rededicate herself.
After enrolling in dance classes and working harder, McCoy made the team the following year.
For the school year of 2009-2010 she earned the position of Senior Lionette Officer, leading on the football field.
"Breauna has grown so much as a person and a dancer," said her mother, JoJo Young.
"She desires to inspire people all around the world, one day."
McCoy, a recent Ennis High School graduate with honors, admits she still has a lot of growing to do, but she is hungry to get better.
"I love leading youth in a positive direction and I hope the Summer Youth Camp will be fun and encouraging to the youth," said McCoy, 18.
McCoy will be teaching dance at the Independent Church location at 1108 W Milam Street, from 6:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. Classes are free and open to youth ages 8 through 18.
"I’ve learned to write my own path and let God lead the way," said McCoy, who will be attending Stephen F. Austin this Fall.
