From the beginning, music teacher Janet Hendley noticed something special in Rachel Tripp, one of the third-graders in her class at Gold Hill Elementary.
“Just raw talent,” Hendley said. “Rachel just has that sense – things you don’t have to teach. It’s just in your genes.
“The kids knew it too.”
In the decade since, Tripp has indulged her passion for singing and sharpened her skills, accumulating a bevy of awards and performance credits. With a semester of school left, the 17-year-old Fort Mill High senior hopes she’s on the verge of a career as a recording artist.
She might be.
