Toni Grantham

Vanguard College Preparatory School

Q: Do you have any study tips?
A: I feel better when I get things out of the way, so I sit down and do my work at one time.
Q: What is one thing you wish you’d known in your freshman year of high school?
A: How much your grades mean from the very beginning. As soon as you start high school, you’re building your resume and transcript.
Q: What is the best lesson you’ve learned from a teacher?
A: I’ve had teachers lift me up and be there for me when I get down on myself. They tell me that this may not have been my best test, but I’m more than that.
Q: What are your school and community involvements?
A: I’m in student council and National Honor Society. I’m in Mu Alpha Theta, a math tutoring program. I’ve been in Latin Club for a long time.
I’m in the National Charity League of Waco. I love helping at the Family Abuse Center. I’ve volunteered with Susan G. Komen.
Q: With a busy schedule, what do you do to unwind?
A: For me, it’s out of sight, out of mind. If I get away from everything, that helps.
Q: What do you plan to do after graduation?
A: Right now, my options are Baylor, Texas Christian University and Texas A&M University. I’m also applying to University of Rochester and Vassar [College] in New York. I want to study psychology and behavioral sciences.
