Six-year-old sets sales record

Her mom calls her friendly and talkative — two traits that pushed East Elementary School student Cheyenne Cromer to the top as the school’s No. 1 candle seller.

Cromer sold $1,300 worth of candles as part of the school’s annual fund-raiser. Last year, she took second place with $741 in sales.

“Last year, I was second cause I was just a kindergartner,” the 6-year-old said.

She won a $100 Kmart cash card for her achievement.

“I could buy anything I want with it,” she said.

She bought an air hockey table, a game for her Gameboy and a movie.

Cromer’s sales route took her to neighbor’s homes, the bowling alley, courthouse, Department of Transportation and the electric company.

“We’ll do more next year,” Cheyenne’s mother, Shirley, said. “It really helps the school.”

Cromer loves school. Her mother said she asks everyday she goes to school.

“My favorite part of school is I like to go out to recess and play and hang upside down,” she said.

She also enjoys music, computers, books and playing dodgeball at the Boys & Girls Club.

“But we can’t play anymore cause someone chewed the ball.”

For Christmas, she wants movies.

“No toys, just movies,” she said.
