This month, we’re celebrating South Fulton’s Super Seniors!
Meet Aleksis Townsend, a member of Langston Hughes High School’s Class of 2020. The National Society of High School Scholars and JROTC member is graduating with honors. In the fall, she will attend Albany State University and major in sports medicine and minor in psychology. She aspires to be a physical therapist.
Q1: What are some of the things that you’ve been proud to accomplish during your high school career?
A1: I was proud to join the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), participate in JROTC and end my junior and senior year as an honor student.
Q2: How have you given back to your community?
A2: I have given back to my community by donating can goods, money for the turkey drive and bringing in toiletries for those in need.
Q3. What are your plans after high school? What are your career aspirations?
A3: I will be attending Albany State University to major in sports medicine and minor in psychology. I aspire to be a physical therapist.
Q4: Who has helped you the most along the way? How did they make a difference in your life?
A4: My math teachers have helped me the most along the way because I’ve always struggled in math. My junior year was my first year earning an A in math based on how the teacher taught, and it followed me my senior year.
Q5. Based on your high school experience, what advice would you give to the members of the Class of 2021?
A5: The advice I would give to the class of 2021 is to make great relationships with your teachers, always do your homework, take all extra credit opportunities, ask for help even if you are scared, and never procrastinate. Do your work before the due date so you can enjoy your free time.
