Sports Summary

Involvement in sports has taught me much more than physical athleticism. It has helped me develop dedication, hard work, and self-discipline. These qualities help me overcome obstacles and set a good example for those around me. Sports has also shown me the importance of teamwork and encouraging those who work alongside me. I bring these lessons with me to every endeavor.

I grew up playing community baseball, wrestling, and running in competitive local races. By my last year of middle school, I chose to pursue wrestling exclusively. As a high school freshman, I was selected as a varsity wrestler and given my letter.

Varsity level sports (and lower levels) require countless hours of work. Our wrestling program involves daily practices in-season, as well as many tournaments and duals against other schools. We train multiple days per week, year-round.

Varsity Wrestling Accolades

  • 2nd Place – Fort Mill Tournament 2022
  • 2nd Place – Camden Tournament 2022

Construction & Engineering

Vocational Summary

Some of my early memories include renovating our home with my father. I helped him run wires for electrical circuits, hang drywall, and install plumbing and flooring. I’ve grown up around the tools used for these jobs.

In addition, I’ve always had an affinity for buildings and machines, and have enjoyed exploring civil and mechanical engineering on any level.

So, in high school, I chose an engineering track in our technical program. As a freshman, I completed Introduction to Engineering and Mechanical Design courses. As a sophomore, I enrolled in the Building Construction 1 program. I plan to progress to Building Construction 2 as a junior, and then Project Management as a senior.

OSHA10 Credential

I’ve completed the OSHA10 Construction Safety course and earned my lifetime OSHA10 credential. This course helps me to identify and implement safe standards in construction, as well as avoiding and correcting unsafe practices.

Project Gallery

The gallery below shows a variety of projects I’ve worked on. Some were created for online courses or for fun. Others were part of my high school’s Building Construction curriculum.

Over the summers, I have been able to participate in several multi-day and week-long experiences.

Citizens Academy

Citizens’ Academy is a multi-day program, operated by the Lexington Police Department. It introduces local high school students to the inner workings of law enforcement agencies.
