Growing up in the quaint town of Arcadia has taught me a number of things, two of those being how important it is to come together as a community and to let God guide you in all that you do. As a graduate of Desoto County High School, I am proud of both where I come from and where I am going. I have spent my years in high school actively participating in a multitude of clubs, such as National Honor Society, Key Club, Delta Omegas, STEM, Future Farmers of America, Mu Alpha Theta, and Class Office. I will be attending Florida State University majoring in Marketing on a Pre-Law track, and thanks to you, I am one step closer to achieving the goals I have set for myself. I look forward to being in the path that Christ has chosen for me. I am immensely blessed to have been selected as a recipient for the Mason G. Smoak Scholarship, and I hope to make my family, friends , peers and community proud with all that I do.
