Eighth-grader with talent, maturity helps captain Barnum track teamPeyton Bushey isn’t your average 14-year-old girl. Yes, the eighth-grader loves to hang out with her friends and likely talk about boys in the halls of Barnum High School, but only if she has time. The three-sport athlete competes year-round in volleyball, basketball and track and field, while she plays the clarinet in the pep band and sings in the school’s choir. The A-honor roll student also loves to read books around her piano and violin lessons.
