LINCOLNTON, N.C.––She plans to make a difference in this world.
She is Natalee Drawdy, and she is among the summa cum laude graduates at the Lincolnton Campus of Lincoln Charter School. This week, Drawdy told The Herald more about her time at Lincoln Charter and about her future plans.
Born in Bradenton, Fla., in 2001, she came to Lincolnton with her family when she was a small child. She is the daughter of Tony and Jessica Potts and the half-sister of Lydia Potts and Ava Drawdy.
Natalee Drawdy said her favorite class at LCS was that of English teacher Tara Granzen.
“I may not have always liked the workload,” said Drawdy. “But she always made lessons interesting and gave us words of encouragement and life lessons every day.
“Throughout high school,” she continued, “I was in the Beta Club, the Bluegrass Club, the Bible Believers Club and many more. During my senior year, I held a position at Chick-Fil-A. I have also been active in my youth group. I serve on mission trips here in the community and sing on the praise team.”
Drawdy will always cherish the countless memories she made at LCS.
“The memories that stand out the most at Lincoln Charter are probably the events held at the school,” she said, “where we were able to interact with everyone, play games and just bond with teachers, students, etc. We had intramural games every quarter and spent the whole day playing games. This last year, we had a lot of senior trips, and our class got really close. I will never forget the memories I have made since sixth grade at Lincoln Charter.”
Come August, Drawdy will be off to Gardner-Webb University.
“I was one of the 35 students accepted into the bachelor of science in nursing program at the Hunt School of Nursing on the Boiling Springs campus,” she said. “I am undecided where I want to work as of now. But I hope throughout my experience at Gardner-Webb, I will know exactly where I want to be.”
And she spoke about her fellow graduates.
“The class of 2019 is definitely an outspoken group,” she observed. “We were always involved in the crazy stuff, the smart people stuff, etc. Our teachers always said that we would make a difference in the world, because our mindsets are set towards goals that we will not give up on until they are met. We are a group of students that have our hearts set towards success and will not stop until we have achieved everything we want.”
