I have truly enjoyed my time at North Pitt High School, making a place for myself and encountering some unforgettable people along the way. I’ve had many successes at school, finding myself at the top of my class and with leadership roles in some clubs and activities. The time not spent at school this year has been spent at a cash register at Food Lion, where I have worked many a night and pretty much every weekend.
I’m really excited about college; not many people in my family have ever pursued higher education, but I have no doubt that it is the next step for me. I am excited to meet new people and experience everything that ECU has to offer.
I thank my family, Mama especially, for their encouragement in all my endeavors, as well as my teachers, classmates, and closest friends. Congratulations to the Class of 2011- we’re graduating! We are ready, though it’s bittersweet. I will always remember this time I have spent with you.
