|Breanna is an exceptional student, athlete, artist and most of all, daughter! Breanna strives for excellence in all she does. She has made honor roll every marking period since 9th grade, even during her most challenging years, 9th & 10th grade- 2020-2021, due to remote learning. We get emails from time to time from teachers that are amazed and so proud, sharing their joy of having her in their class, sharing her outstanding achievements & test grades. The most recent email we received was from her plant science teacher. She wanted to let us know that Bre received a 99 on her exam and she just gushed about her. She has played soccer since she was 5 years old, and she is an amazing soccer player. She is an incredible artist; her artwork is just…wow! Her most prized piece in our home is her Christmas gift to her dad this past year, a painting of handsome Squidward 🙂 It proudly hangs in our dining room. Drawing, painting, reading and animals are her passion. She is attending SUNY Alfred in the fall and will be studying to become a veterinary technician. Her Dad and I really just could not be prouder of her! She has grown into a beautiful, caring, smart young woman. I know she is bound for greatness and will achieve her dreams. We love you, Breanna!!|
|I always tell people that I absolutely hit the Mom Lottery with my 15 year old daughter, Hailey. She is my only child and just an all-around good kid. She’s just a beautiful human inside and out. Hailey is currently a tenth grader at Oneida High School where she’s involved in a variety of activities, as well as AP and Honors classes which all keep her quite busy. She volunteers her time in our community as a member of Z Club, as well as at our local animal shelter. She’s also involved in Drama Club and Chamber Choir, and she babysits in her limited free time. Despite her busy schedule, she still manages to achieve high honor roll each marking period. She works so hard and puts forth 110% effort at everything she sets out to accomplish. As a sophomore, she’s starting to think about her plans for after graduation, and at this point, she has her heart set on pursuing her passion for theatre and the arts and becoming a successful actress. I have zero doubt that if anyone can achieve that dream, it’s her. Her drive, passion, and determination are just a few of her best qualities. I could not be prouder of my girl, and I know she is destined for beautiful and amazing things in this life. It is truly a privilege to be her mom.|
