What is your biggest academic accomplishment and why?
Making a 113 on my chemistry final because chemistry is a very stressful subject over the entire school year, but I won in the end.

Teacher, coach or staff member at Lakeview who has made the biggest impact on you:
Mr. Harris has made the biggest impact on me because he has helped me as a performer but also as a growing man. Mr. Harris helped me in times of need and distress and, with his council, always assured me that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

What will you miss most at Lakeview Academy?
Cross Country and the antics of Mr. Simpson.

Did you participate in anything outside of Lakeview?
I was a student at the George Washington Pre-college program where I learned about pre-medicine and biology.

I also volunteered at Northeast Georgia Medical center where I learned more about the medical industry and the people who work in it.

Additionally, with the amount of time I have been finding or consuming girl scout cookies, that should qualify me as a participant.

College you will attend in the fall: Auburn University

College degree or area of study: Business administration/Finance

Other than college, do you have any other plans after high school?
I hope to intern soon to get a better idea about what I specifically want to do.
