“Knock on wood, hopefully it will stay that way,” she said, adding she’s always been physically active. “I love to get out and do things. I don’t like sitting at home. I’m one of those people who always feels like she has to be doing something.”
Hadley also played tennis, but had to give that up in order to graduate early. One other activity she hopes to continue at ISU is a program called Peer Pals, in which students mentor the developmentally disabled. Hadley is president of Avon’s chapter, which she joined at a friend’s prompting.
“It’s great to put smiles on their faces,” Hadley said of Peer Pals. “I’m not sure they have such a program at ISU, so maybe I’ll just start one there.”
Of all the people at Avon High School, she says she’ll miss her coaches and teachers the most.
“It’s a really good school,” Hadley said.
