Credentials:

Larose-Cut Off Middle School standout Makayla Bynum is a heck of an athlete. But after a brief interview with the young lady, it’s easy to see that she has her head on straight, as well. A basketball, softball, volleyball and track athlete, Bynum excels in her competitive endeavors, enjoying success in each of her sports. But Bynum said that no matter how busy her schedule gets, her No. 1 goal and priority is always to stay on top of her books. She says, “You could be the best athlete, but without education, you have nothing.”
