Patriots News · HALEY ONDERAK – ATHLETE OF THE YEAR NOMINEE


I will never forget my career at Valley Forge once I graduate and take the next steps in my life. My athletic experience has been great, being a freshman on varsity for basketball, and earning first team all conference for volleyball my senior year. I made so many great memories during sports that I will always cherish and never forget. Sports also led me to create so many new friendships that will always have a special place in my heart. Not only did I create so many great memories and friends, but I also learned life skills that will help me in my future plans. I learned to be disciplined, punctual or even early, to work hard, persistence, and to never give up even if it gets hard. I will always thank my coaches for teaching me those things and always pushing me and never giving up on me. I will use those skills in my future when I go to college to be a teacher. I will be attending Baldwin Wallace to study early childhood education. I have always felt a pull towards teaching little children to be that person that teaches them life skills, just like how sports and my coaches did for me.
