Hallie was well known in the community for her bright personality and participation in numerous activities. She was a varsity cheerleader for Lockwood High School, holding co-captain responsibilities last year as a sophomore. She was also on the volleyball team and on the track team, spent the past two years doing competitive cheerleading at Quantum Athletics in Lockwood and was very involved with her FCCLA chapter. This spring, she and two friends received a gold rating at the state competition for their Focus on Children presentation. She also won the FCCLA Member of the Year award.

Her bubbly personality made her so many friends. She was popular among many and was elected basketball homecoming queen this year as a sophomore by her peers.

Hallie will be missed by her boyfriend, several close friends and countless others.

She loved her family, especially her mom. She was very proud of the close bond they shared. She was also a loving big sister. She spent a lot of time with her siblings, often helping to care for them. Her last time spent with her little sister and youngest brother, she made them dinner and sat, talked and ate with them. She had an extremely close-knit home life. Her family will forever be incomplete without her.
