Meet Rebecca Strickland, Bryan County High School freshman, varsity softball player and United States Achievement Academy All-American Scholar.

Q: Where are you from originally and how long have you lived in Bryan County?

I’m from Savannah, but have been here for 11 years.

Q: What do you like about Bryan County High School?

I like the teachers and the extracurricular activities. I especially like how the teachers make learning fun. My favorite subjects are science and math.

Q: What do you like to do when you’re not in school?

I play softball. I’ve played since I was four. I played through middle school and made the varsity team my freshman year. I’ve also won a "golden glove" award for softball. When I’m not playing ball, I like to ride dirt bikes.

Q: What do you like about living here?

It’s a small town, so everyone knows everyone else and you never feel uncomfortable meeting new people.

Q: If you could change one thing about North Bryan County, what would it be?

They are making it grow, like cutting down all of our trees, and I like it better when I don’t see a new subdivision every day.

Q: What are some of your accomplishments so far?

I’m an honor roll student and have perfect attendance. I was also in a conflict management group where we helped our peers solve their problems. I’ve received a golden glove award for softball and made the varsity team my freshman year. I am also an All-American Scholar through the United States Achievement Academy. My middle school teacher Ms. Martin nominated me.

Q: What do you plan to do once you graduate high school?

I’ve made a lot of goals for myself. I want and plan to go to college. I am working on getting a full scholarship. I want to go to the University of Tennessee to study Sports Medicine and Therapy. I hope to earn a Master’s degree in it.

Q: Who are some of the people that help you stay so focused and goal oriented?

My mom and dad, Jason and Mistie Strickland, and my grandparents, Ricky and Linda Sikes, Jan Morgan and Mike Rogers always support me in what I do.
