    Do you have a self-statement or a favorite quote that best describes you and your aspirations for the future?

    • "What's the secret to success? The secret is, there is no secret. Be humble, hungry and the hardest worker in the room." - Dwayne Johnson


    How do you feel the Cumberland County Schools has prepared you for your future?

    • I feel that Cumberland County Schools has prepared me for my future by immersing me in a well-rounded education surrounded by people from diverse cultures. They have enlightened me and given me a broad perspective of the world and my future using the skills I have acquired and much more that was taught to me.


    Is there someone on staff in the school system (a teacher, administrator, coach, etc.) who has made a lasting impression on you? What lesson did they teach you that you will always remember?

    • One teacher, Mr. Joseph Miller of Massey Hill Classical High School always says, "There are different routes to the mall, all that matters is that you get there." This quote was used in relationship to math and obtaining the right answer, but I think he applied this to life, too. It does not matter how we obtain success in life, but just that we do! I think Mr. Miller taught me this.


    What elementary school did you attend (include city and state)?

    • I attended Glendale Acres Elementary School from K-2 grades and Ashley Elementary School from 3rd - 5th grades. Both schools are located in Fayetteville, NC.
