Hailey Byerly was born in Fort Worth, Texas and is the youngest of three. Coming from a very talented family, Hailey flourished in musical theatre for 3 years. It was not until her senior year that she was introduced to, and fell in love with, Speech and Debate.
Hailey finally found her voice and discovered success in a way she had never experienced before through Speech. Hailey earned a full ride scholarship to Ranger College. Although competition was steep against four-year universities, she was able to secure qualifications in three different National competitions and place in many tournaments throughout the season. Hailey is greatly humbled for the opportunity set before her and will work diligently and professionally to live up to the legacy of the Great Debaters of Wiley College.
