Katie Hannah Amason is an 18-year-old Central Alabama Community College student with many interests – school, watersports, cooking and even hunting.
Katie and her twin brother, Clay, are both ambassadors at Central Alabama Community College. The science-loving Katie attends CACC on an academic scholarship and maintains an A-B average there.
The twins had a great foundation for their college success. They were homeschooled by their parents, Angela and Bart Amason.
“I took some classes away from home, like chemistry. (My parents) couldn’t teach me that,” said the 19-year-old. “Or Spanish, neither one of them know Spanish.
The Amasons live on a house on Lake Martin near the Union community.
“I’m always in the water, always on the boat or the inner tube or the skis,” Katie said. “I live in the water during the summer.”
Katie also has a job at the church she attends as a supervisor of Reeltown’s kindergarten through third grade students.
“I work with the after-school children,” Katie said. “They come in and we eat snacks, then I help them with homework and play games until their parents pick them up.”
When she finishes her studies at CACC, Katie will probably go to Auburn University.
“As for what my major is or what I’ll do when I’m older, I’m undecided,” she said.
In her spare time, Katie enjoys bow hunting, cooking – “mainly sweets” and painting.”
