Not your average Freshman


Hailey Enloe, Social Media Manager

Cadence Slankard is a freshman and has been going to school here at West Hardin since she was in Pre-k. 

Most freshmen don’t do anything productive or hang out with their friends and family. They would rather watch Netflix, play video games, eat and sleep but Cadence likes to be more productive and do better things. 

“In my free time, I like to hang out with family and friends and play sports,” said Slankard. 

All of Cadence’s friends enjoy getting to spend time with her outside and inside the school and playing sports, but Freshman Peyton Soto thinks much more of Cadence. 

“Cadence has a very sweet personality and has a very pretty smile,” said Soto.

Most freshmen aren’t too sure what they want to do after high school but I think Cadence has got it all figured out. 

“After high school, I want to go to college to become a pediatric nurse,” said Slankard.

Cadence does enjoy school and her classes, but she does look forward to going home. 

“My favorite part of the day is getting to go home and relax after being at school all day,” said Slankard.
