Spencer Cordle is a 14-year-old student at Heritage High School. He is a part of the General Journal staff but is looking for new clubs to join. He loves all things related to art, music, and cooking. He can always be found listening to music, drawing, or hanging out with his friends. His current favorite band is Insane Clown Posse, but he also loves early 2000s pop. He listens to music all the time and can’t hear people when they talk because of it. He also loves to cook, bake, and watch cooking shows to yell at the contestants, even though he isn’t much better himself. Outside of his hobbies, he also loves to hang out with and help people however he can. He always tries to be there for his friends and family, even if he can’t help much. Family is very important to Spencer, and they are his top priority. He has two brothers and a sister, and he is the oldest of them all. He is very excited to be part of "The Legacy" and cannot wait to see what his freshman year will bring.
