Senior Lindsey Hall strives to be a model student while being involved in several clubs and extracurriculars.

   Since she walked through the doors of Sheridan High School senior Lindsey Hall has been participating in many school clubs and programs to further benefit her future. Currently, Hall has been involved in Big Brothers Big Sisters, the SHS volleyball team, Sources of Strength, honor choir, Spanish Club and National Honor Society. Along with Hall’s extracurricular activities, the senior has also been maintaining a job at the YMCA through the recreation district. 

   Hall has done both club and school volleyball during her high school career. Some of the positions Hall has played throughout her volleyball career have included outside hitter, libero, and defensive specialist. Hall has played her freshman, junior, and senior years. Along with the skills learned from years of playing volleyball, Hall also learned what it means to be a good teammate. “I definitely learned how to be kind, especially to people like your teammates,” said Hall. Many teammates also agree that Hall has been a positive impact on the team on and off the court. 

   “Lindsey is always encouraging, and she’s always super positive,” said teammate Amber Grutzmacher.  

   Being active in the community and giving up time voluntarily is something Hall also does on a consistent basis. Hall is now a leader in the Sources of Strength program, a member of National Honor Society, and is a participant in Big Brothers Big Sisters. “Lindsey’s one of my best friends,” said junior Mckailyn Malles, “We met in seventh grade and ever since then she’s been such a leader to me. I know I can always look up to her.” Through these programs, Hall has been able to give back to the Sheridan community. She also claims to have taken away valuable lessons, “Being a role model or being a good person in someone’s life is really crucial,” said Hall. 

    On top of giving back to the community, and being a part of the volleyball team, Hall is also a leader of the Spanish Club, an honor choir student, and is a strong student according to many of her teachers. “As a student and as a member of the Spanish Club she has been great,” said Spanish teacher Mario Mantano, “She is one of the students that all the other teachers want to have.”

   Getting ahead in school and taking accelerated classes is something Hall has definitely been taking advantage of. In order to get a head start on her career path, Hall has taken AP Spanish, English 1010, public speaking, AP Environmental Science, AP Psychology, AP American Government, and she has also been taking an online Cultural Anthropology course through Sheridan College. These courses will all count as college credit for Hall when she graduates. 

   Although Hall is not completely sure what she would like to study in college, she is leaning more towards the fields of political science, business, or law. In the meantime, Hall plans to complete her general credits at Sheridan College and discover other career paths that may appeal to her. As far as location for college after Sheridan, Hall is looking at attending the University of Wyoming or possibly the University of Arizona. 

   Hall has also been thinking about possible jobs in her future such as becoming a lawyer, manager in business, sometimes Hall even imagines becoming a Spanish teacher as well. Hall mentions that her attraction to political science, government and business, became more clear when she became a part of the We The People program her junior year. “I loved AP gov,” said Hall. “The more I sat down and learned about politics, the more I figured out that I was really interested in it.” 

   When Hall is not busy with extracurricular activities or advanced classes, she is usually writing poetry about her life experiences or spending time with her friends or family. “I like to express myself through poetry quite a bit,” said Hall, “If you look through my notes on my phone I have random little fragments that I’ll come back to later.”

   Hall also says that she has a very supportive family who want to see her reach her full potential. “I have absolutely amazing parents; anything they can make it to they’ll be at,” said Hall. “They’re always in my corner. Same with my brother as well.” 

   Hall is the daughter of Kim and Bubba Hall.
