WAYNESFIELD — Megan Barden, 18, and a senior at Waynesfield-Goshen High School is keeping options open after high school. She’s much too busy enjoying her senior year to commit to a career now.
“I play basketball, I’m in marching band and I run track,” she said.
“I like the up-and-down pace [of basketball]. I like to be quick. I like being on a team with my friends and having a lot of fun,” she said. “Band is fun. I’ve been in band since 5th grade. I play alto sax. I like hearing the different sounds in each piece of music and how each of them go together to make one big thing.”
As for college, things are still up in the air.
“I’m kind of undecided right now. [It’s] either between business or health care administration,” she said.
Wherever she goes, it will be close to home.
“I don’t want to go out of state or far away. Just far enough away, but not too far. I haven’t really decided yet,” she said.
One thing is for certain, she really enjoys going to school at Waynesfield-Goshen High School.
“I like that it’s small and everybody knows everybody. The teachers are personal. They actually know who you are. You’re not just another name,” she said.
Even principal Brian Hogan is impressed with Barden.
“Megan works really hard here at school. She’s very involved. She always has a positive outlook on the day and I think she adds a lot of stuff to our school in terms of positively and being a good leader,” said Hogan.
