Blair has been voted "Best All Round" both in her freshman and sophomore years. She has attended a two-week Musical/Theater Camp in Michigan for two consecutive summers.

Blair plans to graduate from a University with a Music/Theatre Degree and become a Broadway singer. She will have the tools to achieve this dream since she has been singing since the age of three. Blair was chosen among ten students for the lead role in "The Secret Garden" play at SLU in Hammond and had lead roles in several school plays.

During this year of service, Blair will travel across Louisiana and further educate children, her peers and others diagnosed with Tourette's Syndrome on ways of overcoming this illness in order to lead successful lives. Children often suffer from low self-esteem for many different reasons. As part of Blair's commitment to service, she will speak to schools and church groups using her experience and talent to help young people reach their potential and feel better about themselves.
