Jaedyn’s activities include student council, yearbook, activities council, letterman’s club, basketball, track, volleyball, band, NHS and her church. Her hobbies include reading, hiking, swimming and spending time with family. Jaedyn plans to attend South Dakota State University to major in Secondary Education with an emphasis in mathematics.
