Where are you now?  Batesville Junior High School, Batesville, MS

Why did you choose to come to MSU? I'm a third generation Bulldog, so it became a family thing to attend MSU, plus the College of Education there was excellent so it made the decision to attend there easy.

How did the METP enhance your college experience at Mississippi State? I was in a group of about 30 other people who were going through the same thing I was, so it really helped me to make friends in the same career field as me.

What were some of your other involvements on campus? I attended the Baptist Student Union, and I was part of the Shackouls Honors College.

What do you want people to know about you? I am shy until I become comfortable with you.

What advice would you give to entering freshmen or students finishing up high school? Study!! You may not have had to study in high school, but you will in college.
