Meet Silverado Resident and Master Baton Twirler
Once a baton twirler always a baton twirler. Hettye Sue took twirling, tap dance and clarinet lessons as a youngster. She was a majorette in high school and college — even marching and twirling in President John F. Kennedy's 1961 inaugural parade.
Sharing her talents became an important part of her life. She taught twirling to young children, performed the clarinet in concert bands, used her tapping skills in local theater productions, and was a runner up in the Miss Arkansas contest — all by the time she was 25 years old. Her drive for learning new things continued as she played golf, tennis, earned several advanced degrees, and made a name for herself in business and real estate, without ever losing her passion for baton twirling.
Today, the environment at Silverado enables Hettye Sue to continue to practice the life-long talent and passion she finds meaningful. For her, twirling not only keeps her mind and body active, it also creates pure moments of joy!
