Arendell Parrott Academy - Addie Cheek
WITN Class of 2021
My name is Addie Cheek, I’m from New Bern, North Carolina, and I am a senior at Arendell Parrott Academy. I have 2 sweet little sisters, and 2 amazing parents. I love to go on runs, swim, and walk my dogs. I also play guitar. My relationship with God is very important to me, and I am very involved with my church, youth group, and Young Life. My favorite subjects are English and History. I will be attending Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia in the fall, and I hope to one day follow in my father’s footsteps to become an attorney.
