Through the years, over 17,000 students have graduated from this high school. To be a recipient of this recognition is both meaningful and humbling. My time at Forsyth Central is one I will always cherish. I am thankful for the staff who aided in my success and to the lifelong relationships I created among my peers. One of my fondest memories is ultimately working for my high school principal in my first teaching job. The Forsyth County school system means a lot to me and I’m pleased to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.”
