Uche Mbachu

On January 24, 2020, I interviewed Logan Anderson, a senior at Charles Herbert Flowers High School. Logan Anderson isn’t just any ordinary 12th grader, as she is the senior winner of the Science Fair, member of the Jack and Jill program and National Honor Society, as well as Science and Technology student with an average of a 4.2 GPA. It could be said that she is a very well-rounded students and a wonderful example for other Flowers attendees.

With a student like this one can only wonder if she will be attending university, and if so, which ones?

Logan is happily applying to HBCUs across the country, she is considering attending the following:

  • The University of North Carolina
  • Coastal Carolina University
  • Spelman University
  • Tuskegee University

“What would you like to Major and Minor in?”

“I would like to major in animal Science and would like to minor in Culinary Arts.”

I asked what career she was looking forward to and she said that working with animals or traveling to see exotic animals. She said that her love for animals is what drew her toward that career path.

I asked her if she had any advice for students who are working to get into colleges and she had this to say

Freshman- Get all of your community service hours, get involved with school activities, be organized and have copies of your assignments

Sophomore- Start to decide what colleges you want to attend, go on college tours, keep working hard to keep your grades up, and start studying to take the SAT’s

Junior- Study ACT, SAT and do extracurricular activities

Senior- Apply to all the colleges you can and start scholarship searching.

Science and Tech- Keep organized, think of RP project Now and don’t procrastinate.

Hopefully these tips can help out any students working toward a college career life.
