All-Scholastic Sports Team - Week 3


EDIE COLLINS IS KNOWN AS A QUITE LEADER BY HER TEACHERS AND PEERS AT SUMTER ACADEMY. HOWEVER, HER WORK BOTH ON AND OFF THE BASKETBALL COURT SPEAKS VOLUMES. SHE'S THE TOP RANKED STUDENT IN THE SENIOR CLASS, MAINTAINS A PERFECT GRADE POINT AVERAGE AND MADE A 30 ON HER A.C.T.

SHE DOESN'T VERBALLY SAY A LOT AS FAR AS LEADING.
BUT JUST HER PRESENCE AND THE WAY SHE HANDLES HERSELF INSIDE THE CLASS ROOM. PEOPLE TEND TO FOLLOW HER AND SHE'S A GREAT ASSET TO OUR SCHOOL.

EDIE HAS PLAYED VARSITY BASKETBALL FOR THE LADY EAGLES FOR THREE YEARS. SHE'S PRESIDENT OF THE BETA CLUB, A MEMBER OF THE SUMTER ACADEMY MATH TEAM, SGA TREASURER, AND A MEMBER OF THE NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY. SHE ALSO SAID ONE OF HER FAVORITE PAST-TIMES WAS SERVING AS WATERGIRL FOR FOOTBALL TEAM THE PAST TWO SEASONS.

THEY NEED SOMEBODY TO GIVE THEM WATER--YOU'RE OUT THERE. ¤
EVERY DAY YOU GO SIT IN THE HEAT FOR TWO TO FOUR HOURS UNTIL COACH CALLS OFF PRACTICE. I GIVE THEM WATER, FILL UP ALL THE BOTTLES AND GET TO GO TO ALL THE GAMES AND RIDE THE BUS.

SHE'S VERY UNSELFISH IN DEVOTING HER TIME AND EFFORT TO DO THAT. SHE'S A BIG PART OF OUR TEAM AND SHE DID A GREAT JOB.

EDIE CURRENTLY HOLDS DOWN A PART TIME JOB AS A PHARMACY TECHNICIAN AND PLANS TO ENROLL IN NURSING SCHOOL AT THE UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA THIS FALL.

WELL, IT'S TAKING CARE OF PEOPLE. EVER SINCE I WAS A LITTLE GIRL I PLAYED DOCTOR. I PUT THE BAND AID ON THE CUT AND THE NEOSPORAN. I JUST LOVE CARING FOR PEOPLE AND I WANT TO MAKE A CAREER OUT OF IT.
