Landon Manning


BIOGRAPHY:
I’m from Columbia, North Carolina and I currently attend Columbia High School as a senior in the class of 2012. After high school, I will be attending North Carolina State University as a Park scholar, with an intended major of biomedical engineering. During my time in Tyrrell county, I’ve taken advantage of many opportunities provided by the small town of Columbia and its surrounding areas. I’ve played school basketball since 7th grade, ran a half marathon in the outer banks, hosted multiple American Red Cross blood drives at my high school, and I volunteer scuba dive in the Graveyard of the Atlantic shark tank at the North Carolina aquarium at Roanoke Island. Many people like to think small towns like mine are void of entertainment, educational, and extra-curricular opportunities. Although these opportunities can sometimes be more difficult to find, they are definitely present, and I’ve done my best to exploit most of them.
