News 3 Sports would like to congratulate our latest Classroom Champion, Haily Dever. The Snook High School senior has a 5.3 GPA, and is currently the valedictorian of his class.
Haily is a member of the Snook Lady Bluejay volleyball, basketball, softball, and track teams. She was a 1st Team All-District and Academic All-District in basketball and volleyball. She was an Honorable Mention Catcher ins Softball last season, and an Area qualifier in the Triple Jump in 2012. Academically, Haily is her Senior Class' President and the President of the National Honor Society. She's also a member of FCA, FFA, 4-H, SPJST, Go Texan, and she's the Treasurer of the Student Council. Haily has been on the "A" Honor Roll her entire high school tenure.
"I have Haily Dever for years now. Not only is she one of my tallest students, but she's also one of my most determined students. She's determined in the classroom, and shes also determined in whatever sport she chooses to play. Which is a lot of them...Haily Dever is one of those just well rounded students and people in life. She is successful in everything she does. And wants to be successful. And its that want in her that gives her that drive and that determination to do everything that she has done already."
"Haily handles pressure well in the classroom; she's always on top of her grades. She always has everything in, she never misses an assignment, and she studies hard. She's able to balance that off the court classroom part. And she also found a way to excel at athletics. She's been, you know a huge asset to this program."
"Volleyball is my favorite sport, because I like the thrill that I get when I get to spike the ball on the floor and get an ace. On the basketball court I prefer to get rebounds and power up strong and make the basket. I do both, I try to encourage my teammates by talking to them, but what more words because actions speak louder than words. It's been easy I mean; schools always come easy to me. So it's not too difficult to keep up with my grades and still perform on the court."
After high school, Haily plans on attending Stephen F. Austin State University and major in business.
Congratulations to Haily Dever of Snook High School. This week's News 3 Sports Classroom Champion!
