WAYNESFIELD — Peyton Spencer, an 18-year-old senior at Waynesfield-Goshen High School, is a three-sport athlete at the school and has plans to earn a college degree in graphic design.
“I like being creative and it’s something where you do something different. Not every day but a lot so that I won’t get bored easily,” Spencer said.
It’s a career field where she might create a logo one day or a brochure the next.
She’s considering going to Bowling Green State University or the University of Akron.
Spencer is also involved in band and choir, National Honor Society and is class president.
She also is involved in 4-H.
“I show rabbits and when I was younger I just did little projects like cooking and art,” Spencer said. “It’s a different group of people to be around and it teaches you responsibility and it’s just fun to me.”
Spencer is involved in volleyball, basketball and softball. It’s an experience that will help teach her valuable lessons.
“(It teaches me) definitely leadership, treating people nice (and) responsibility,” Spencer said.
When Waynesfield-Goshen schools went to remote learning in the spring, it was a big adjustment for her.
“I didn’t like it. It’s kind of hard for me to learn without being in a classroom but I found a way to teach myself,” she said.
Waynesfield-Goshen schools recently pivoted to a hybrid learning model where they were in class four days a week and offered classes remotely for one day.
“It’s better that you see people’s faces and the teachers are there to help you along if you need it,” she said.
As for learning at Waynesfield-Goshen schools, Spencer was appreciative for that experience.
“I like that it’s small and everyone knows everyone and the teacher knows about you and how you learn and they know your past, they know your siblings and how they learn and it helps a lot,” Spencer said.
