My name is Katie Jones and finally I am a senior at South Lenoir High school. I am graduating in June although I am still debating whether to attend Campbell or East Carolina University. Regardless, I plan to pursue a career as a cardiologist. My experiences during the past four years have allowed me to uncover my talents, passions, and dreams for the future.

At South Lenoir, I participate in cross-country, basketball, and track. My favorite of the three is track (it is shorter running distance). Being active in three sports for four years has had its challenges. I had to learn to balance my priorities and time in order to be successful. But by being active in sports, I have made many friends and had the opportunity to learn more about myself. Also, I am the senior class president as well as president of Fellowship of Christian Athletes. FCA is one particular club that I am passionate about since we hope to share Jesus with others in a way that is inviting and fun.

In the years to come, I see myself continuing my education to become a cardiologist. From volunteering at Lenoir Memorial, I have found that I enjoy the environment of the hospital. After seeing my heart for the first time on an EKG, I was so mesmerized that I knew I wanted to work with the heart.

Lastly, and most importantly, I am thankful to God and my family for never-ending love and support.
