As a student at T.C. Roberson I am an honor and AP student. Throughout high school I have participated in: student government symphonic band, prom committee, sign language club, and upon entering my 11th grade year, I was invited into the National Honor Society. I can honestly say that I truly appreciate the many activities a student can be involved in at T.C. At the same time, something I hope to see changed in the near future is for all students, rather than only certain students, to be lifted up by all teachers to reach their highest potential and strive to be their best.

I've been very involved in extracurricular activities, and have had fulfilling experiences in all! As a varsity athlete, I have had opportunities to complete across the state and train with incredible coaches, and as an editor of the school newspaper, I have loved getting to see the behind-the-scenes aspects of what goes on around the campus.

I really enjoy the competition between classmates. Because of this, I know I always pushed myself to do the best I could. Also, I love the teachers. They really care about their job and about students succeeding. Another aspect I loved was the course load available. There are plenty of AP's offered that give you a good challenge to complete. They also help prepare you for college. I'm grateful for TC Roberson because I know they prepared me well for my future education.
