Discus Award Winner
12th Grade, TN
I am a diligent student. Maintain a 3.6 GPA throughout high school has been a good challenge and I plan to keep challenging myself throughout college. My junior and senior year of high school I have been enrolled in dual enrollment (college courses).
Giving back to the community, in my opinion, is one of the most accomplished feelings. Even a simple thing such as roadside cleaning, or cleaning out the rivers make a difference. I volunteered at an animal shelter for 5 months and also fostered a dog for a week.
I am also involved in Junior Beta Club, which is a volunteer based organizations. As well as Y-Teens, which annually helps at the Fantasy of Trees in downtown Knoxville. Both had food dries and Salvation Army Donating booths.
As a firm believer in Catholicism, I have been attending the same church for seven years now. I am the youngest leader and part of the parish council, which I take pride in.
