Leslie is a senior at Williams High School (WHS). She has lived in Williams her entire life.

At WHS, Leslie has recently found interest in law enforcement with Jeff Brownlee. After taking the class, Leslie decided she wants to study forensic science.

“I think I might stick to forensic psychology and lab work,” Leslie said. “I want to do more behind-the-scenes stuff.”

During her time in school, Leslie said her biggest supporters include her parents, siblings and Mrs. Moreno.

“I go to her for everything,” Leslie said. “Any problem I have, she helps me through it.”

In her spare time, she likes to read mystery and crime books and crochet. Leslie is also a cheerleader at WHS. She has been doing cheer since the fourth grade.

She is planning on attending Grand Canyon University (GCU) after graduation to study forensic science.

“I don’t have my heart set on anything other than GCU,” Leslie said.

Leslie added that she is going to miss the small town feel of Williams and the tightknit community.
