Havelock High students up for Military Child of the Year

Paley served as a team manager for the Havelock High wrestling team and is also involved in marching band at the school, but her community service extends beyond the walls of the school.

“I’ve done a lot with helping groups of military kids,” she said.

Finalists are scheduled to be announced in March, with each one receiving $5,000 and a trip to Washington for a recognition ceremony in April.

“We’re all just crossing our fingers and hoping for the best,” she said.

Paley said she has allowed her mind to think about being named a finalist.

“It would be amazing,” she said. “I would get to bring my dad along. It would be absolutely incredible.”

McClenney said she wasn’t exactly sure how she got selected as a semifinalist.
