Kayla Craddock


My name is Kayla Craddock, I am a super senior at Edgecombe Early College High School in Tarboro, North Carolina. I will be graduating in May of 2022 with my high school diploma as well as my associate’s degree in science. In the fall, I am attending the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to pursue a bachelor’s degree in communications. I am still unsure of the career field that I want to enter, however, I feel that earning a degree in communications will open the door for many different opportunities. I have 3 siblings, who are my built-in best friends! During my free time, I love to workout, read, spend time with friends and family, as well as babysit for families in my community. My faith is extremely important to me, I wouldn’t be where I am today without the constant reassurance of God’s plan for my life. In the future, I would love to travel the world and hopefully have a positive impact on those I encounter. I can’t wait to see what the future holds!
