Gehmans Mennonite School


Jaclyn Hoover

8th Grade

Jaclyn is a great classmate. She always has a brilliant smile on her face and adds laughter to the class.

Some things Jaclyn really likes about school are that she gets to see her friends and gets to do art. She likes art because she can express her feelings. Her favorite kind of art is painting, but painting with water colors is her favorite. In her free time Jaclyn loves drawing and listening to music. Her favorite colors are aqua and coral. Her favorite kind of food is a cheeseburger. Her favorite sport is ice skating.

After graduation Jaclyn plans to go to high school and work at a café or coffee shop. If she could start a business she would start a small café, coffee shop, or a fashion store with modest clothing. Jaclyn dreams of traveling someday. Two countries she would like to travel to would be France and Spain.

She also likes to spend time with her family and their pets. Jaclyn is the oldest in her family and has one brother and one sister. Her parents are Derrick and Joetta Hoover. One of her most important decisions was to accept Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior. If Jaclyn could change anything in the world she would outlaw abortion, because it is not right to kill little unborn babies.

If you ever meet Jaclyn, I’m sure you will not quickly forget her because of her great friendly personality.
