WCHS Academic Spotlight


 Alizabeth McCurry is a standout student at White County High School for more than just her diligence in the classroom.

The senior, who has plans to attend the University of Tennessee Chattanooga and become a school psychologist, is also very involved in clubs whose goals are to better the community and expand the experiences of their members.

“I am a very sociable, caring, and helpful person,” McCurry said, describing herself as someone who is very outgoing and loves to be around people. “So, any service projects that come up, I like to take part in.”

To help her with her desire to serve others and to better her community, McCurry has been a part of White County High School’s Interact and Beta clubs, both of which have given her opportunities to complete service projects in her school and around the community.

Her involvement in the International Club at White County High School has also given her the opportunity to learn about other cultures and expand her experiences beyond the borders of her hometown.

White County High School English teacher Jason Crockett said  McCurry is a student that stands out and makes teachers wish there were more students with the same energy and passion that she brings to the classroom.

“I can’t think of anyone more energetic, convivial, uplifting, and humorous than Alizabeth McCurry,” Crockett said. “In the universe of my classroom, she has always been one of the brightest stars. Her enthusiasm, gregarious laughter, and brilliance continue to inspire not only me but also her peers. She makes you wish there were more students like her in our classrooms.”
