Armuchee High senior Kyleigh Powell on Friday signed a volleyball scholarship with Reinhardt University in Waleska.
Powell said of the signing: “I am so excited to begin my next chapter at Reinhardt University, while soaking in every moment as my time in high school comes to a close.”
“Signing to Reinhardt for volleyball means so much to me because I’ve been working toward this moment for over eight years. I believe that Reinhardt and the tight-knit community will be such a great fit for me.”
“I couldn’t be more excited. I also would like to say a special thank you to God, family, coaches and friends for making this all possible.”
