High School Involvement: In High School a grand majority of my involvement revolved around band. Band was an extracurricular activity that became a passion. I became a great section leader for the Trumpets and I received excellent chair placement through out high school. I was also involved in National Honors Society my junior and senior year which helped me to learn the value of volunteering. My senior year I joined DECA, a club that is focused on building future business executives. This is a club in which I wish I did all four years of high school because of the relationships I built and knowledge I gained. But I will forever be thankful for how the club built me as a future business student.
