IRISH BELLE – 2019 Kaylie Pendleton

High School Senior Named Irish Belle for the 31st St. Patrick’s Day Parade on March 16. 

Kaylie has been on the Principal’s Honor Roll at El Camino High School in Ventura every semester, Freshman through Senior Year. Kaylie is described by her Principal, Cheryl Burns, as “a very strong student with a 3.7 average.” She is currently taking both high school and college classes. In June she will receive both her High School Diploma and her AA Degree from Ventura Community College!

Kaylie is active in her community and believes in the power of giving to others. She has been involved with many community art projects, including the Mayor’s Arts Award in 2016 for Student Artist, and helped paint the “Havana to Ventura” mural in Downtown Ventura, alongside Cuban Artist Pedro Pulido and local Artist and Art Teacher MB Hanrahan. She also traveled to Romania to help with children’s literacy and assisted with an outdoor adventure camp for children.

Kaylie intends to continue her career in Illustration Art. She has been accepted and is receiving financial aid from Pacific Northwest College of Art in downtown Portland, Oregon. With all of her credits accepted from Ventura College, she will graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in Art in just two years. The future is bright. In a poem she wrote called Nothing, but Everything, Kaylie is “Growing stronger and stronger, She absorbs everything”.

The Belle’s duties are to attend promotional activities supporting the Parade and to ride in the convertible that leads the St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee entry. Also riding in a second convertible this year will be Kaylie’s Irish Bell Court, runners up Carly Hansen from Buena High School, and Annika Kinnaman from Foothill High School.
