Next year, I will attend UNC-Chapel Hill, and I plan to major in Finance and minor in Child Development. I can't wait to become a Tar Heel and make many new friends!
I've enjoyed playing trumpet in the marching band for 5 years, and flute in concert band. I also love working in my community through the Key Club at my school. I love hanging out with my friends and spending time with my boyfriend Taylor Cowan & his family.
I would like to thank everyone in my family, my dearest friends both new and old (you know who you are), my wonderful teachers, Taylor, and Mrs. Penny Cowan for their continued love, support, and confidence in my goals. I love you all very much & I know in my heart that no matter where life may take us, that we will never be too far apart.
To the FIRST graduating class of Riverside High School in Williamston: Good luck, you guys, in everything you do. I know that we are the class that will change the world. We may have come together as 2 different groups, but we are leaving as 1 family. I love you all! Congrats c/o 2011!!
