Last Friday, both of Everett's dreams came true as she signed a national letter of intent to play basketball at the St. Louis School of Pharmacy in St. Louis.
"It feels great to know that I have accomplished a couple of my goals," said Everett. "I knew that I wanted to go into the medical field to help people. When St. Louis also offered me an athletic scholarship, I was thrilled."
Everett was a four-year letterman and a two-year starter for the Lady Wildcats. She averaged 9.5 points and 7.1 rebounds per game this season and connected on 67 percent of her free-throw attempts.
"I have had tremendous support from my parents," said Everett. "They have always been there for me and helped when I needed them the most."
Everett will be a licensed pharmacist upon graduation for the six-year course at St. Louis. She is the daughter of Jim and Kelly Everett, of Cassville.
"I would tell anyone thinking about playing college sports to do their best and always work hard," said Everett. "I didn't think that I would be good enough to play at the college level my junior year. I just worked and tried to get better. I feel blessed."
