Hello my name is Blake Boyd and I am a senior at Southern Nash High School. I am very honored to represent Southern Nash High School for the WITN Class of 2016. At my school I have played two sports, baseball and football, and I have had many leadership roles including Student Body president and Beta Club president. I have had some of the best and most memorable times of my life at Southern Nash High School with my classmates, teachers, coaches, and principals.
Outside of school I have hosted and coordinated strong community events like blood drives through the American Red Cross, and I have succeeded in following the things that I have dreamed of doing. For example, one activity that I find most exciting is flying and I am most proud to say that I have had my Private Pilot’s license since the age of 17. Another achievement that I pride myself on is my concession trailer. I travel to many festivals every year where I meet many interesting people. The most important thing that I do with my business though is I give back to my community at least four to five times a year. With my concession trailer I give back to elementary schools and churches by catering many of their events at no charge. This is one of the best feelings in the world simply because it is important to support those people who support your success.
