From: LaGrange, Georgia

Major/minor: I plan on pursuing a major in biology in hopes of going into nursing. I am currently undecided on a minor.

Why did you choose Georgia College? I chose Georgia College for multiple reasons. One of those reasons is its location and size. GC is not too big or too small.

What were your biggest achievements in high school? Although I had many academic achievements, some of my largest achievements were through sports. I was a member of LaGrange Academy‚Äôs back-to-back softball state champion teams and the basketball state champion team.

It was truly an honor to be captain of both these teams my senior year of high school.

What activities/sports/community service will you pursue in college? I hope to participate in intramural softball or soccer. I also hope to be a part of the Georgia College Baptist College Ministry and other campus ministries.   

I am so excited to start a new experience at Georgia College. I cannot wait to meet new friends and start pursing my future career.
