Tell us about the teacher, coach or administrator who made a difference in your life:
My FACS (Family and Consumer Science) teacher, Mrs. Amanda Ballard, at my home school (East Poinsett County High School) strongly encouraged me to pursue my dreams as a sophomore by attending ASMSA as a junior and senior. Her positive influence in my early high school years have left a lasting impact on my character and skills as a student and person in general.
