Croatan High School - Bethany Stacy
WITN Class of 2021
My name is Bethany Stacy and I am a senior at Croatan High School. Throughout my time in high school I have been a part of many clubs such as FCA, Science Olympiad, BETA Club, History Club, and FBLA. I have also been selected for varying honors such as attending the North Carolina Governor’s School, selected as North Carolina Young Author’s winner, and chosen to attend my county’s CLASS program. Outside of school I love to dance and spend time with my friends. This fall I will be attending UNC Chapel Hill where I will study pre-law while majoring in marriage and family therapy and minoring in psychology. When I am older I hope to practice law and advocate for foster care reform.
