Weddington Volleyball Player Wins Community Heroes Award
Written By Lane McCree
Weddington High School senior volleyball player, Myah Ward, has been named the Queen City Audio, Video and Appliances Community Heroes Award Winner. The daughter of Raina and John Ward plays the positions of outside line hitter and defensive specialist for the Warriors. Myah’s standout performance can be seen both on and off the court, as she carries her passions into all of her extracurricular activities.
On the volleyball court, Myah serves as a leader for her team this year as a senior athlete. She enjoys watching the chemistry grow between teammates, and noting improvements in the team’s skill level. Myah explains, “I love moments on the court where we successfully execute a play that we worked really hard on in practice the day before.” In addition to volleyball, Myah also plays a very active role in helping out in the community. She orchestrated the Teens for Jeans campaign at Weddington High, Middle, and Elementary school. Last year, the schools raised over 1,000 pairs of jeans, and donated them to the homeless youth. In addition, Myah volunteers at Heaven’s Own Dog Shelter, Battered
Women’s Shelter, and Carrington Place.
Inside the classroom, Myah is a straight A student who has attained a 5.0 GPA. Not only is she a Junior Marshall, but she is also a part of the
National Honor Society. Myah has also been a representative in the student government at Weddington High School for the past two years. She is also actively participating the International Thespians Society, an honors program for students who excel in theatre at the high school level. Although her favorite class is English, Myah hopes to study political science or law at the college level.
Queen City Audio, Video and Appliances salutes Myah Ward for her continued commitment serving others in need in our community.
