 “Kylie has continued to grow as a team leader,” said Head Basketball Coach Chris Arledge in his nomination of Halstead.  “Not only has she grown in her leadership, but she has continued to work in the classroom taking tough classes to prepare her for college.  What I really respect about her is that she’s accountable and one of our hardest workers.  She is a tough young woman!”

Student athletes are nominated based on their athletic performance, academic performance, and overall attitude and dedication to their sport.  Halstead was presented a certificate and her name is the first to appear on a plaque that will hang in the James A. Dawson Athletic Facility.
