James Kenan High School - Alicia Dixon
WITN Class of 2021
Hello! My name is Alicia (Lisa) Dixon. I am from Warsaw, North Carolina, and I am 17 years old. Growing up, my parents made sure I was a very active child. I participated in recreational sports, fashion shows, church events, and youth choirs. Engaging in these activities taught me the importance of giving to others, being a team player, walking with confidence, and strengthened my faith in God. I am genuinely grateful for these opportunities. My religious values and education have been significant to me through the years and my inspiration to keep going. Now I am a senior at James Kenan High School and dually enrolled at James Sprunt Community College. I plan to graduate high school with not only a high school diploma but a Business Administration Certificate. This next year, I plan to take my first step to make a difference in my community, going to college. I plan to attend NC Agricultural and Technical State University, where I hope to study Marketing. Although I am unsure what the future holds, I am excited and ready for what’s to come.
