FAVORITE MEMORY FROM HIGH SCHOOL
As president of Beta Club, I was able to organize a clothing drive along with my leadership team. As a club, we were able to donate more than 1,000 winter clothing items including coats, scarves, gloves, and hats to Our House to help people in need.
THE TEACHER WHO MADE A DIFFERENCE
My academic counselor Mr. Kim Williams has gone out of his way to help me achieve my goals and encouraged me to live a more balanced life focusing of character, service and leadership in combination with my academic achievements. I could not have imagined such a successful high school experience without him.
