Why did you choose Vanderbilt? It was a tough decision between Brown and Vanderbilt. Vanderbilt’s culture and atmosphere seemed more at home to me. What will you remember most about being a Fluco? The community involvement in Fluvanna. So many people walk so many paths of life. Many people are involved in everything from local government to community service, to teaching and beyond, and there is a strong community of support. Who are some of the people that you would like to thank? Coach Barnett, he has really helped me grow to think past just winning or losing at tennis, but to learn from it while having fun. Ms. Carolynne Hagan, who taught me Chemistry for three years. I am interested in Chemical Engineering because I enjoyed her chemistry classes so much. There are so many others, I do not want to leave anyone out. Several teachers who have guided and led me to enjoy my high school years include Mr. Doug Campbell, Ms. Sherry Esch, Mr. Matt Morrison, and Mr. Mitchell Pace. Of course, I would also like to thank my parents, who have been an incredible source of support and motivation for my entire life. What advice would you give to rising 8th Graders? Get involved in something outside of academics. There is sometimes a culture that there is not there much to do in Fluvanna but there are athletics, arts, lots of things. There are so many people who I have met outside of the classroom. Some of the people I met in athletics are my closest friends. My freshman year, I felt like I did not have many friends. My sophomore year, I joined cross country and indoor track and met so many wonderful supportive people. I felt like I had tons of new friends. The best decision I ever made was joining the cross country and track teams. What is something humorous that happened while you were in school? I have always had an anger issue when playing tennis and I yell a lot. The fact that I throw my racquet around coincides with my poor anger management. Sometimes I bounce my racquet off of the ground and bounces back into my hand. At one of my last practices, I bounced my racquet and instead of bouncing back into my hand, it broke. I went to get my other racquet and found it was cracked also. I think my racquets are trying to tell me my high school tennis career is over. What are your best memories of school? Last year during indoor track, I qualified for regionals by earning 5th place in pole vault. I was seeded 7th in Regional Competition and I ended up having a big Personal Record (PR), which put me in 5th place. Placing in the top six qualified me for states, satisfying my long term goal for the season. What is a Fluco? I think Mr. Mitchell Pace exemplifies what a Fluco is. A Fluco is a person who can identify and understand the flaws in Fluvanna County and still love the people, its sense of community, and the opportunities to people have here....

First of all, Duke gave me a full ride and a lot of benefits, which definitely influenced my choice. But Duke also has a fantastic premed program, tons of opportunities inside and outside the classroom, and it offered me the option of creating my own major What will you remember most about being a Fluco? I had tremendous teachers throughout high school who really impacted my life. For example, up until my junior year I assumed I would attend a small in-state school or maybe UVA. My history teacher Mr. Morrison really inspired me to challenge myself and believe in myself, and it made a big difference in the kind of student I became. Who are some of the people that you would like to thank? My teachers Matt Morrison and Lauren Funk, my wonderful friends, and most of all, my mom, who is most of the reason I even graduated high school. What advice would you give to rising 8th Graders? It is never too early or too late to figure out who you are. You don't have to enter 8th grade and know you want to be a pediatric cardiothoracic surgeon or a biomedical engineer. Just enjoy life, pursue your passions relentlessly, and the rest will fall into place. What is something humorous that happened while you were in school? I once got into a food fight with Dionte Hardy over an argument involving firefighters and a questionable chicken fajita. What are your best memories of school? All the usual stuff made for great memories: proms and home football games and lumberjack Fridays. But the best part was meeting my friends and the memories I made with them. Oh, and Mr. Morrisonson AP U.S.History class. It should be mandatory for graduation. What is a Fluco? A special type of person, a unique and patient person who can explain to everyone who asks them, and it happens a lot, “What is a Fluco?”...
