BIOGRAPHY:
My name is Devan Ferrell Riley, from East Duplin High School; son of Jody and Selina Gurganus and the late Kevin Riley. Growing up in the small towns of Chinquapin and later Beulaville gave me a strong sense of family, church and community. I am an active member of Sharon Baptist Church in Chinquapin, and I’m blessed to have my parents and grandparents to support my every endeavor.

While at East Duplin High School, I have set high goals to achieve the greatest possible academic background possible. I have challenged myself with Honors and AP courses and will graduate with approximately 21 college credit hours. Leadership has been an aspect in my life that I have enjoyed gaining experience in. I have served as SGA President for 2 years running, and have been involved in the Beta Club and Future Business Leaders of America. In addition to my coursework and clubs, I have played football and baseball for four years.

Over the last two summers, I attended Summer Ventures for Science and Math and NC Governor’s School East. Both of these experiences proved to be the most beneficial programs that I could have ever experienced, and I built relationships that I will always cherish. I know that because of these programs, I am better equipped to move on to my career goal of dentistry. Recently, I was awarded the Park Scholarship to NC State University, and I knew at that very moment that my commitment and dedication to academics in high school had paid off.
