“You are successful the moment you start moving toward a worthwhile goal.” – Charles Carlson
Alexia Stone, a senior at Blue Ridge, is a participant in Leo Club (3 years), National Honors Society (4 years), Students Against Destructive decisions (3 years), managing the girls JV Varsity basketball team (3 years), was treasurer of FBLA (1 year), and was a part of Science Club and Prom Committee (1 year). You may think Alexia has a lot on her plate with all she’s been involved in during her 4 years at Blue Ridge, but she decided to keep up the hard work by planning on staying within the honors program, and volunteering to any of those who need her help in other work environments/clubs.
Stone’s plans for after high school are to attend college and receive her Doctorate in Occupational Therapy, though her dream job is to have her own business for Occupational Therapy. She elaborated by saying, “Working with any age of children to those who are going through rehabilitation and have to learn all of the functioning skills again.” She decided to take this path because ever since she was younger she’s always been interested in helping those around her with their personal struggles, and to help them achieve their personal goals. In ten years, she hopes to be involved in a great career with good working environment and in the process of buying her own house and starting a family.
