D.H. Conley High School - Trey Cobb
WITN Class of 2021
Hello! My name is Trey Cobb, and I am a senior at D.H Conley high school. My parents are Steve and Patty Cobb and I have 2 older sisters, Taylor (‘13) and Jordan (’15) that also graduated from DH Conley. I also have a dog named Bella. I have lived in Greenville my entire life; even though I have enjoyed Greenville I am looking forward to the new experiences that await me. Throughout my time at Conley, I have participated in football and basketball, several honor societies, and clubs that have made my time at Conley memorable and unique. I have been very fortunate to have been able to dual enroll in Conley and Pitt Community College for two of my four years at Conley. I will be graduating with an associate degree from Pitt Community College this May, and I plan to continue my college years at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. GO HEELS!! Outside of school I have been fortunate to be able to serve my community through various projects. I have volunteered at my local humane society, church activities, and have organized fundraisers that have made an impact on not only myself but several communities. I love being active in any way outside of sports, whether it be fishing, hanging out with friends, walking my dogs, or anything that can help me relieve my stress.

Attend University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to begin my Computer Science degree.

WHO IS THE MOST INFLUENTIAL PERSON IN YOUR LIFE AND WHY:
My dad is the most influential person in my life because he is always there for me when I need advice and never lets me give up on something after I start it. He is also the reason that I got into computers and without him I would probably have no idea what I would want to do.

I’d take a solar-powered motor boat.
