Keyara La’Shae Hedgepeth Little Miss Haliwa-Saponi – 2017-2018

Hello my name is Keyara La’shae Hedgepeth, affectionately referred to as Lucy.  I am the daughter of Brian and Jessica Hedgepeth.  I have one brother, D’Montae O’Neal Hedgepeth.  I attend Gaston College Preparatory (KIPP) in Gaston, NC, where I have met all academic goals for my grade level.  I am currently on a college track and looking forward to attending ECU in 2026.  I enjoy taking piano lessons, playing soccer and softball, and finding ways to give back to my people.  I am a student at Raven Street Dance Studio and Cultural Group so I can continue to get a better understanding of my culture.  This year as Little Miss Haliwa Saponi I felt that I accomplished a lot.  I hope my legacy of peace and unity continues to grow.

Love, Lucy
