Our final alumni spotlight shines on the talented Keymiya Norman from the PHS Class of 2019. After graduating, Keymiya embarked on an academic journey at NC A&T State University, where she pursued visual arts. She faced challenges that led to her pivoting to the workforce, taking on various jobs. Yet, none could quench her thirst for artistic expression. With talents spanning drawing, painting, hairstyling, makeup, and the ability to bring her imagination to life, Keymiya faced the challenge many artists in small towns doβ€”making a name for themselves.In a bold move, she has decided to enlist in the army, aiming to channel her efforts in a new direction while continuing to pursue her love for art globally. As a small arms/artillery repairer, she is set to begin basic training in South Carolina on May 13th. Her message to us all: facing challenges head-on is crucial. Running from difficulties leads nowhere, and stagnation is far scarier than embracing the unknown. Inspired by her favorite art teacher, Ms. Wilkins, Keymiya's guiding principle is the importance of effort and trying, regardless of the outcome. This story is a testament to the courage, resilience, and undying passion for art that defines Keymiya Norman. Keymiya Norman our WCS Alumni Spotlight!

The Regional Director and a representative from Congressman Davies' office met with our juniors and JROTC members to discuss the United States Naval Academy (USNA). Serving as the premier undergraduate institution for the naval services of our nation, the USNA equips young individuals with the skills, moral character, and compassionate leadership needed for successful careers as professional officers in the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. Students, known as midshipmen, are considered active-duty members of the U.S. Navy throughout their four-year tenure at the academy. Upon completion, they earn Bachelor of Science degrees and are commissioned as either ensigns in the Navy or second lieutenants in the Marine Corps, committing to a minimum of five years of service. The representatives highlighted several key aspects of the academy, including its offering of 26 diverse majors and a notable 90% graduation rate. They also mentioned the possibility for students to start their college education elsewhere and then transfer to the service academy.
