About Peyton McNorton

By: Jadyn Wood.

Peyton McNorton, is a freshman that loves many things and wants a grat career in her future. If Peyton could go anywhere in the world she would want to go somewhere in Europe, because she’s never been there. She would like to go there but she is still considering moving there after she graduates and gets her college diploma .When peyton graduates from WHS, she wants to be a therapist that works with people because “I have struggled with lots of things and i’d like to help people overcome what they think they can’t.” To pursue the required college degree, she would like to go to Blue Ridge community college and transfer to James Madison University or Kentucky State. When she graduates college, Peyton sees herself getting a job, maybe being married and having kids with the love of her life.  Peyton enjoys swimming and playing Candy Crush on her free time because “it passes time and it’s stress free,” says Peyton. One of her favorite memories is every Christmas she would go to her grandpa’s to see all her family. It’s her favorite memory because everyone was happy, and she got to catch up with all her favorite loud aunts, and eat lots of yummy food. Her best friend is Kaelyn Strack because “she’s always been there even when there was a rough patch in our relationship.” Also, “they always hang out together and have too much fun.” Peyton’s favorite food is pasta because she’s part Italian and she loves the different types of delicious pastas. Funny, shy, and pretty are the three words Peyton uses to describe herself.
