"Finally a first in the 21 years of our All Scholastic Sports Team; a student gymnast., who also plays softball, golf and cheers at Newton County Academy. Hannah Dee Smith participates in four different sports while keeping a 4.0 GPA." "Hannah Dee Smith: I hate getting low As. It's worse than getting a B to me. I hate getting low grades so I've always had my grades high and that was what my parents have taught me ever since I was in kindergarten." "Robin Johnson: "Mentally, she challenges herself. She challenges her classmates. She challenges her teachers. She has a lot of irons in the fire but she never lets one fall behind." "Perhaps, Hannah's hottest iron in the fire is gymnastics. She's been in a gym since the age of three and hasn't slowed down any as she travels to Tuscaloosa three times a week to train." "Hannah Dee Smith: Most teenagers don't stay in gymnastics. You don't see as much about it because there comes cheerleading and there's other options to do and it's a lot easier than gymnastics." "Hannah is going to continue taking the hard road as she goes to Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota, to do both gymnastics and softball..." "Stacey Sykes: A key player as far as batting goes. She had an average of above 4.50 for our team and if we were in a clutch situation, we could always count on Hannah to perform." "This student athlete may be leaving the Magnolia State for college but you better believe she'll be back with one more iron in the fire." "Hannah Dee Smith: I'm going to get my coaching degree and a business to degree and I'm going to go to Ole Miss or MSU, hopefully and start a gymnastics program there because there's no college gymnastics programs in or around Mississippi."
