Student-Athlete of the Week: Keiana Slaughter

We’re starting a new weekly segment here on ABC 36 honoring the student-athletes across central Kentucky.

Our first honoree takes us to Georgetown where we meet Keiana Slaughter, a senior at Scott County.

Keiana is a multi-sport athlete who can be seen most often cheering on her fellow Cardinal classmates with the cheerleading squad, er favorite sport. She’s been doing it since she was 8 years old. Aside from her athletics, Keiana is a member of the National Honor’s Society and has committed to attend the University of Cincinnatti next fall.

She admittedly always keeps her plate full. So full that despite being busy with school and sports, the future Bearcat has developed quite a hobby: she makes her own clothing.

“I have been sewing and selling clothes since freshman year of high school. But it has picked up in quarantine since I have a lot of free time on my hands,” Keiana said. “I have done a lot of stuff online and sell a bunch of stuff that I think would be cool for other people to buy. People have liked it so I kept doing it and kept having a lot of fun with it. So I’m going to keep doing it until I don’t know when.”
