The time has arrived
Valedictorian Brittany Ellisor was busy preparing her speech, and herself, for Friday night’s graduation ceremonies.
Ellisor said she is both excited and a little sad to be leaving high school, and she confesses she’s a little nervous about her speech.
Ellisor plans on attending LaGrange College in the fall where she will major in biology.
After participating in youth apprenticeship classes last year at Ty Cobb Healthcare, she has already decided on a career as a pediatric physical therapist.
“It just clicked, that’s what I wanted to do during those classes,” she said.
But first, there’s the move two and a half hours away from home, meeting new people, and adjusting to college life.
Ellisor says she will miss her friends and playing on the high school softball and soccer teams, but looks forward to making new friends and playing on new softball and soccer teams at LaGrange.
Another plus, she says grinning, is that she will get to play softball against her big sister, Jennifer, during their games against Faulkner College’s softball team.
Ellisor’s parents are David and Melissa Ellisor, of Danielsville. She also has a younger sister, Renee, who will be a sophomore at MCHS in August.
For salutatorian Molly Atkinson, the emotions are similar to her friend Brittany’s – she’s excited about the future, but sad to leave her longtime friends and the school she’s come to know so well.
She is excited about attending Piedmont College in Demorest, where she will major in chemistry, with an eye toward pre-pharmacy studies.
“Chemistry is my favorite class,” she said. Atkinson played on both the volleyball and soccer teams at MCHS and will also play volleyball for Piedmont.
And that’s what she’s most looking forward to. “I’ll get there (at Piedmont) early and I’ll have a ‘family’ in the team already,” she said.
Atkinson’s parents are Charles and Teresa Atkinson, of Danielsville. She has a younger sister, Abby, who will also be a sophomore at MCHS in August.
