Elle Marie McFatrich is the daughter of David and Sonya McFatrich. Elle Marie has been attending East Mississippi Community College this year and has always been homeschooled. The college she will attend is uncertain, but she plans to explore her love for science as she pursues a degree in nursing. Creativity and athleticism are two of Elle’s many strengths, and she expresses herself through art, creative writing, and volleyball. Elle has loved making new friends and attending youth group retreats with Starkville Church of Christ.
Her favorite passage is “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).
