She said her father, WHS Athletic Director Phillip Echeverria, has been a big encouragement throughout high school.
“He and Brownlee have been my biggest influences,” she said. “Their coaching and teaching.”
Chyanne said one of her favorite memories from high school is homecoming and being able to bond with other students.
“It brings us all together and makes us feel like a family,” she said. “It sets the tone for the rest of the year.”
In her spare time, Chyanne is involved in Young Life and enjoys hiking, especially in Sedona, and travelling.

After graduation, Chyanne plans to attend Arizona State University where she will study business. She hopes to start her own business one day and become a motivational speaker.
Chyanne said she has noticed a difference in school spirit this year because of the coronavirus pandemic. She said it has affected school spirit.
“It’s definitely affected the school environment and makes things just a little more difficult. There’s things like our senior trip that probably won’t happen and graduation might have to be moved outside,” she said. “There’s a lot of activities that we usually do as a high school together that we didn’t get to do this year.”
Chyanne said she will miss all of her classmates after graduation.
“I will miss seeing their faces, especially after 12-13 years of seeing all of them.” she said. “And Friday night lights, I’ll miss that too.”
