This past week, one of our seniors, Sylver, graduated from William M. Raines High School. She is now preparing to move to Tallahassee where she will be attending Florida State University on a full scholarship! We are so proud of all that she has accomplished while in our program and can’t wait to see what she will achieve in Tallahassee.
Read her story below about her experience as a full-time student while doing dual enrollment, playing tennis and maintaining a job.
While being a full-time student, playing tennis and maintaining a job may sound like a lot for an 18-year-old, it’s not. I have a lot of goals, dreams and aspirations that I would love to accomplish, conquer and obtain. The only way to satisfy my future needs are to work hard now so that I can live lavish later. This lifestyle comes easy to me because I keep God first and he strengthens me and reminds me to never give up and contribute 100% effort towards everything I put my mind to.
I found out that all of my hard work and dedication paid off on January 25, 2018 at 5:19 PM when I received my acceptance into Florida State University. FSU has been my dream school and being able to say that I am a Nole is a dream come true. We have several Noles in my family and it means everything and more for me to be able to join the club.
Without TnT, I would not have the preparation or the mindset I have now. Since 5th grade, TnT has instilled in me to never give up and keep school first. TnT provided me with opportunities and exposed me to things I wouldn’t have been able to find anywhere else.
