Not many people know much about Gavyn Mashburn, he is quiet and keeps to himself. He does a lot for drama and basketball. He records basketball games and goes to drama and basketball practices.

He runs the curtains during Meridian plays, opening them and closing them in between scenes. “For basketball,” he said, “I run their timer during practice and record all of the games.” When it comes to management and helping, Mashburn tries to handle it all.

“He does volunteer at the food pantry in Decatur from time to time,” said Judy Mashburn. “He also loves to bake, and is fantastic at it!” Mrs. Mashburn says he is very caring and loves to help people.

While he seems quiet and shy, Mashburn is actually involved in many things to do with the school and really enjoys helping people.
