BIOGRAPHY:
I have lived in Wilson for almost my entire life and have attended Fike for the past four years. I joined the cross country team in 9th grade as a way to get involved (and because my older sister was on the team) but soon found that I had my own love for running. I had four awesome seasons, competing in the NCHSAA 3A State Championship meet every year. In 11th grade I placed 2nd, despite having my shoe pulled off by another runner at the beginning of the race. I also participated in swimming, soccer and outdoor track.

As a way to relax after homework and athletic practices, I play piano. I have been taking lessons for 11 years and am currently preparing for my senior solo recital. I used to avoid Classical music as much as possible, but ironically, Beethoven has become one of my favorite composers.

I am President of Science National Honor Society, Vice President of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and of the National Honor Society, and a member of Keyettes. It has been an honor and a pleasure to be a part of these clubs!

I am so thankful for the support my family and friends have given me. They have taught me many things that I will always remember, especially while I am far from home next year at college. I have made many great memories over the past few years, and I hope there will be many more to come!
