I am a Trailblazer.

Hey, I’m David, and I’m a senior here at Woodlawn. I came to Woodlawn in the eighth grade, and I can say without a doubt that it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! Since coming to the school I have had countless opportunities to pursue new interests and hobbies. In my first year at Woodlawn I was introduced to cross country. At that point I had never run before, and wasn’t too keen on the idea of running to the point of exhaustion for fun. However, I gave it a try, ended up loving it, and I stuck with it all four years of high school. Because I was given the opportunity to try a new sport, I found a new passion, and I wound up signing with UNC Asheville to run in college! I can confidently say that without Woodlawn, I would have never had the same opportunities.

On the academic side, Woodlawn has helped me out in a lot of ways. The small environment and tight-knit community at Woodlawn gives every student the ability to develop close relationships with classmates and teachers. I love the fact that every teacher knows me as a person, not just as another student. Because of the smaller class sizes, you never feel nervous about asking questions, and you are able to learn the material well.

I am incredibly thankful to have been able to attend Woodlawn. The school has changed my life, and I will carry the memories I’ve made here for the rest of my life. I feel ready for college, and I am definitely going enjoy the remainder of my time here at Woodlawn!
