I am very thankful to be a recipient of the 2019 Mason G. Smoak Memorial Scholarship for Hardee County. I graduated in the top 10% of my class in Magna Cum Laude. Over the years in high school, I have played varsity softball and volleyball. These sports have made me a better person and have taught me life lessons that I carry with me every day. I was very fortunate to be an active member of National Honor Society, FFA, Leo's Club, and STEM along with showing an animal in the Hardee County Fair each year. I also take pride in being a member of First Baptist Church of Wauchula's youth group. I always strive to put others before myself and be a shining light in all that I do. My future plans are to receive my AA from SFSC and then transfer to a university to obtain a degree in neonatal nursing.
