I transferred to East Carter (EC) at the beginning of my junior year. The decision to move was due to my love of soccer and interest in playing college soccer. EC offered what I needed academically and athletically. The teachers care about me as a person and always encourage me to do my best. I have become a better student in the classroom, and a better person outside of the classroom. EC offers various learning opportunities, clubs, sports, and extracurricular activities. I’ve had the opportunity to explore different careers, taking classes in both business and engineering. I now plan to major in engineering, electrical or mechanical. What would I like to see change at EC? A wider variety of dual credit classes. I would have liked to have taken a physics class to better prepare for engineering. And the opportunity for more hands on activities, currently a majority of classwork involves writing or typing of the assignments. I’ve really enjoyed EC and the people that I’ve met.
