WCHS Academic Spotlight - Luci McBride


Luci McBride is nearing the end of her time as a student at White County High School, but the senior Warriorette has no intentions of not being in the halls of a school for a long time to come.

McBride, who intends to continue her post-graduate education at the University of Tennessee Knoxville, aspires to become a school counselor and help other students, much like herself, navigate the world around them.

“I love to work with kids,” McBride said, “especially when I can listen and help people.”

Tobi Swift, a member of the White County High School faculty, sees McBride as someone who would excel on the career path she has chosen, possessing what she describes as a unique set of character traits.

“One thing that is unique about Luci is that she is a perfectionist. She is not fazed by the status quo but sets herself apart with an elite mindset,” Swift said. “Not only is Luci a competitive perfectionist, but she is also a leader among her peers. Her ability to think logically makes her mature for her age as well as a voice of reason to those around her.”

McBride has put her leadership skills and eagerness to help others to work over her high school years as both a captain of the Warriorettes cheer team and as the student council vice president. In addition, the WCHS senior has spent her summers volunteering with the White County Library Summer Reading Program.

As inspiration for her work in and out of the classroom as well as her daily life, McBride turns to the Bible, stating that Matthew 5:16 is what she strives to achieve every day: “In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your Heavenly Father.”
