Austin will be an Honors Graduate and will receive the North Carolina Scholar Award at graduation. She has been a member of the Beta Club throughout her high school years and helped deliver meals at Christmas time through the Poovey’s Chapel Youth Group. Austin will pursue her goal of becoming a physical therapist at North Carolina State University or Appalachian State University.

My teammates taught me the importance of understanding how to work together.”
