Former Feed My Lambs Student to Graduate from Clemson University

Growing up I lived in a single parent home where my mother took care of my younger sister and me. As a toddler my grandmother worked at Feed My Lambs and helped get me into the Feed My Lambs program. Attending Feed My Lambs gave me the opportunity to spend a great deal of time with my grandmother. Feed My Lambs was the kick start to my academic career and spiritual walk with God. Attending Feed My Lambs, helped me get familiar with other kids, it taught me my letters and numbers, and I also learned about God through Bible verses, songs and prayer.

We lived in Georgia until the end of my 8th grade year and then moved to North Carolina where I attended high school all four years. Throughout my school career I have maintained very positive grades and graduated high school with a 4.0 GPA. I am now a senior at Clemson University as well as a track athlete. I am majoring in business management and will be working for PepsiCo when I graduate in May, 2013.

I was given the start that many people do not have and I am very grateful to Feed My Lambs for the grounds that were implemented for me.
