Just walk into any toy store and you’ll see her face on a product label or the side of a box that contains Insta-Snow® (it’s the powder that turns into snow when you add water… but that’s not important). Arianne Heaton was a student of mine at Willow Creek Elementary years ago and today she signed her National Letter of Intent to play soccer at Jacksonville University in Florida. She’s an amazing young lady who excels in everything she does (science too), but her real calling is soccer. Arianne just finished her final U-18 season with Colorado Rush at a New Year’s tournament in Disney World. The girls are all Seniors and will go on to play their final high school season and then it’s on to college.
It’s an exciting day for us to see our “snow girl” embark on the next big adventure of her life as she accepts a wonderful scholarship to play soccer at Jacksonville University. As Arianne was signing the paperwork, her parents, Lisa and Gordon Heaton, realized that they shouldn’t have been as hard on her as a kid for kicking the soccer ball through the living room window seventeen times. Her parents now own a window replacement company.
