Bear Grass Charter School - Ireland Haltigan
WITN Class of 2021
Hi! My name is Ireland Haltigan and I’m a senior at Bear Grass Charter School. Over the past four years, I have enjoyed leadership roles in several clubs and playing soccer with some of my closest friends. I was raised by my parents, April and Kevin Haltigan, and have a twin sister (although we don’t look alike). I’m a member at St. James United Methodist Church, and I plan to attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill this Fall. In my free time, I like driving around with friends, going to the beach, playing with my dog, and watching Netflix. I’m so appreciative of my family and teachers for all of their support and I cannot wait to see what the future holds!
