Hannah Ferree to attend Meredith College
"I am truly excited and blessed to continue my education at Meredith College. I thoroughly enjoy helping people and that's why I plan on pursuing a career in occupational therapy. I'm so gratful for everyone who has helped me get here including The Men's Club of Morganton."


Patsuqua (Pat) Xiong from Burke Middle College
"I plan to attend Appalachian State University in the Fall semester. I'm going to major in Political Science pre-prof. legal studies. Because I already have my AS & AA, I'll be at ASU for 2 years. Then, I want to go to law school. I was inspired to be a lawyer because, while taking my Civics & Economics class, I learned the importance of knowing your rights. I would like to learn even more about my rights as I begin my legal studies."
