Brittany Worley is from Whiteville, North Carolina, and graduated in December of 2017 with a degree in biology. She was a proud member of the honors college, Lambda Sigma Honors Society, and Tri Beta Biology Honors Society. She was proud to serve on the Student Honors Council as the member at large, historian, and treasurer. Brittany said, “getting recognition at graduation for all my hard work over the past four years and graduating as a Maynor Honors College student was very rewarding to me.”
For Brittany’s senior project she wrote a narrative of how she progressed academically throughout high school and college. She explains her experience tutoring students and how it led to her decision of becoming a teacher.
After graduation, she attended graduate school for high school education. She advises honors students to take advantage of all the opportunities the honors college gives its students. Brittany had the opportunity to study abroad to Berlin in May of 2016 with the political science department. She was awarded a scholarship from the honors college that made it possible for her to go on the trip. Studying abroad was her greatest memory at UNCP because she got to immerse herself in a country's culture for the first time in her life.
