Great Basketball player

I remember playing basketball with her in her yard, and I knew that she had something. Great job Janetta, may God Bless you and your family! Tracy R. Dixon

Wonderful

In a day and time where everything we see is so negative, it is refreshing to see a good story. Congratulations on your achievement.

A stellar athlete!

Anyone who knows Janetta knows she is the "complete" package. She is smart, funny, sweet and incredibly athletic. It is a pure joy to watch someone who enjoys themselves as much as she does in EVERY sport. As a Patriot Athletic Booster at Pender High - I could not be more proud! GO Janetta - Go Patriots! Barton College has no idea just what they are getting!

GREAT JOB!!! There are

GREAT JOB!!! There are always too many comments when teenagers do badly and never enough praise when they do well. I hope that this is just the first of many good things that Jannetta accomplishes in her life. Keep up the good work.
