School: Crestline High School – 8th Grade

Representing: Liberty Leaders 4-H Club

My name is Alec Sipes. I am 14 years old and I am a freshman at Crestline High School. I partake in many school activities such as show choir, basketball, cross country, track and swimming. I also am part of the FCCLA Chapter and I love every minute of it!

My parents are Kevin and Mindy Sipes and I have two other siblings, Tyler and Kennedi Sipes. In my free time I like to run, or help out and do community service. That way our community looks nice and presents well to the non-locals. I am a part of the Liberty Leader’s 4-H Club and I love it! We do so many fun things, and also help the community of Bucyrus out by picking up trash for our annual trash pick-up day. I enjoy it so much! Thanks for taking the time to read this. It means a lot. Yours truly, Alec Sipes
