Meet Baylee Harding

Baylee Harding is a senior at Missouri Southern State University (MSSU) studying Secondary English Education. Baylee has been a member and officer for the Sigma Tau Delta chapter at MSSU for two years, and now serves as the Student Representative for the Midwestern Region. In her free time, Baylee leads worship at her church, spends time with her friends and family, and adds multiple books to her to-be-read list that simply never get read.

  1. I chose to become an English Major because literature, writing, and reading are all ways that I have been able to express myself most fully, and I want to lead students to experience the same outlet in literature and composition!

  3. The last book I read was The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller.
  4. My favorite book series is The Selection by Kiera Cass.

  6. The last book I bought was Hook, Line, and Sinker by Tessa Bailey, but I have not yet read it.
