Megyn Kelly: I grew up here, living in this town from the age of 9 to 18, from 1979 - 1988. My family lived in the Delmar area. I was a good student, and began focusing on athletics in high school, where I was on the basketball and field hockey teams and was also captain of the cheerleading squad. In 1985, when I was 15 years old, my father passed away. In 1988, when I was 18, I moved away to Syracuse, the city I was born in, to attend Syracuse University.
