Special Seniors Recieve 2003 JJ Vance Scholarships
Congratulations to the East Chapel Hill High graduates: Amanda Bradford, Eric McAden, Daniel Potter and Tara Stifler.
Throughout her high school years, Amanda Bradford has displayed tremendous abilities to lead her classmates, teammates, fellow citizens, and friends. A four-year letterman in volleyball, the senior team captain was named the 2002 All-Conference Volleyball Player of the Year. She is a National Honor Society member. As an officer in the Spanish Honor Society, she participated in many Spanish community supportive programs and events. Amanda works hard towards her goal of becoming an FBI agent.
A East Chapel Hill High football letterman for three years, Eric McAden also lettered in track and field for two years. This multi- talented athlete developed his mind through participation in Advancement via Individual Determination (AVID), a rigorous academic program at East Chapel Hill High School. He was inducted into the National Achiever's Society and Who's Who among High School Students in America.
As one teacher said of Daniel Potter, "he is simply a fine young man—academically, athletically, and personally." The leader on the East Chapel Hill High School Soccer Team for four years also lettered in lacrosse during his sophomore year and played on the varsity golf team during his sophomore and junior years. Daniel performed at an exceptional level in his academic work. He further developed his leadership skills through his Boy Scouts of America projects, earning the rank of Eagle Scout in November 2002.
Tara Stifler is a remarkable athlete. She played basketball, volleyball, and softball for four years. She was a winner of the basketball team's 'Will to Win Athlete' as a sophomore and also a co-captain in her junior and senior years. Tara, a National Honor Society member, is also an excellent student and extremely active in school affairs. Her teachers consider among "the very best we have to offer."
