Area 16 year old begins at Drury University
September 3, 2020
Darren and Dierdre Hedgcorth, of Cassville, are pleased to announce that their granddaughter, Kadence LaRue Maggard, is a freshman at Drury University in Springfield, where she will study Cyber Security with the intent of working for the Department of Defense. Sixteen-year-old Maggard attended Cassville High School for part of her freshman year, then completed the remainder of her secondary education with a homeschool curriculum - which she completed within a year, her proud grandmother stated. Maggard was the recipient of a Drury Dean’s List Scholarship which will cover the majority of her education. Maggard is not old enough to meet the university’s requirement that students must be 17 years of age in order to live on campus, so she will be driving back and forth to Springfield until she achieves that milestone.
