Blue Ridge senior Ardine Stilloe III plans to attend college for a degree in business management, then further his education at law school. His dream, he says, “is to become a prosecutor.”
Stilloe, a high school athlete for all four years, says he won’t play on any college sports’ teams because he will be too busy studying, although he anticipates joining clubs that will aid his educational goals.
Not participating in a school-sponsored sport will be a big change for Stilloe, but he says college will offer other perks.
“I think college will be very different from high school in that I will have much more freedom.”
He also says that his new-found freedom will create a need to be self-disciplined.
“I will need to work to manage my time more efficiently to succeed on my own.”
As for advice he would give to underclassmen, Stilloe says: “Work hard in school to maintain good grades, and enjoy your time with your friends because it’s over quicker than you think.”
