Samantha Cornett
Freshman Sam Cornett (14) joins the journalism team for her first year as a high school student. Although her actual first name is Samantha, she prefers the more concise version: Sam. Born March 18, 2002, in Atlanta, Georgia, Sam has lived in the Peachtree City area her whole life, but she often spends her summers in North Carolina. However, she admits that she is looking forward to leaving Peachtree City after high school and moving on to do new things during and after college. As far as the college search goes, Sam is not sure of where she wants to go since she has just entered high school and is still getting adjusted, but she says she may be interested in Georgia Southern University, where her sister went, and the University of Florida. She is also not sure what she wants to do for a career after college because she is still learning what she likes to do. Sam is extremely passionate about soccer. She currently plays for a local AFC soccer team, but she plans on trying out for the Lady Chiefs soccer team in the spring. Sam enjoys soccer so much that she currently has an internship with the Lazers soccer club, a local recreational soccer group. With this internship, Sam does everything from helping young players with soccer camps to setting up flags on the fields before games. She also says that United States’ women’s national soccer team player Carli Lloyd is her inspiration. Sam decided to take the school’s journalism class because the class sounded interesting to her, and she also took a broadcasting class in middle school that got her interested in the journalism field. Plus, she enjoys being able to write in a more informational style, and she is looking forward to being able to write sports articles for the McIntosh Trail.
