Presenting the Fab Four of CGW High: Kendra Hayes

Most people know that Kendra is the first of the fab four that I wrote about when I began writing Freshman Focus in 2002.  Kendra is the type of student that teachers love to have in class because she is so reliable plus she is no trouble at all.   So many words come to mind when I think of Kendra — tomboy, intelligent, mature, and loving.  We know she has her weaknesses, but she’s so genuine that you tend to overlook her flaws.  Kendra’s the girl next door that mothers hope their sons will one day bring home.
