Cathy Riley, English Department Chair, said “Kynedie Craig is a conscientious student always exercising time management and maintaining an A average in English IV class.  She is a mature, studious young lady and a joy to teach.  When Kynedie finishes the task at hand, it gives me much happiness to observe her reading books and, I might add, she creates the most artistic literary projects.”
