Once I graduate from Frankston High School, I will attend East Texas Baptist University in Marshall to pursue my degree in Athletic Training. I love the idea of a career that keeps me involved with sports and athletes. I will be playing football at ETBU and participating in many community, church, and team oriented events.
I have been looking at attending East Texas Baptist for some time, and knew that being a private university, it would cost more. I signed to play football for them in February and that provided me with a few academic scholarships, but there was still a remainder that I knew my family couldn’t cover.
Since my dad’s oilfield accident that left him with a traumatic brain injury, my mom has struggled to keep things close to what they were before. With this scholarship, I can take full advantage of what this fabulous faith-centered university can offer me and I can watch my mom actually take a breath for the first time in almost three years.
I haven’t had the chance to experience college yet, but I know that it is something that I will never forget.
