Because of the Interact Club’s sponsorship by the Rotary Club, she was awarded with the Rotary Club of Denver-Lake Norman’s Student of the Month recognition. Post was given the opportunity to attend one of the Rotarians’ meetings and speak to them about her accomplishments and plans for the future.
“Last year,” she added, “I was a junior marshal, for which I am even more appreciative of now, seeing that I got to participate very closely in a traditional graduation, which the class of 2020 sadly won’t be receiving this year.”
Post played for four years on the women’s varsity tennis team for LCS.
“Through that,” she said, “my love of tennis really grew, thanks to my coach, Dana Crichton, as well. I always looked forward to practices and matches, and we had a really amazing team, which gave me the opportunity to make new friends. I was a team captain, along with the other seniors my senior year, which was really fun and an honor.”
During her sophomore, junior and senior years, Post was awarded with all-conference honors by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association Southern Piedmont Athletic Conference. This was due to her improvement and to Crichton’s sincere dedication to the team, as Post noted.
“Our coach always encouraged us to participate in things as a team in order to work better as a team,” she said. “Last year, we volunteered for Love Denver (a church-sponsored community medical clinic), as well as put on a yard sale to get rid of things that might be of greater necessity to others in the community and raise money for the team.
“Outside of school,” she added, “I like to play tennis with my dad, and I have participated in a few tournaments as well. I really enjoy shopping, working out and hanging out with my friends. Together, we always like to go out to eat at new places, or eat our favorite food, sushi. We also like to swim in the lake and go tubing. Much of my life is done at home with my family. I love to cook, thanks to my parents, who also enjoy cooking and always have a home-cooked meal for me. I love to travel as well. I have been to almost all 50 states; I think I’m at 42. Last year, I also took a trip to Amsterdam with my dad for spring break, and I went to Alaska with my family a few years ago on a mission trip.”
A member of Denver Baptist Church, Miss Post is active in its student ministry.
And she extolled the class of 2020, addressing its members directly.
“Although the ending to our high school career may not be traditional,” she said, “it will certainly be one we won’t forget. I am very grateful for my 13 years at Lincoln Charter and the friends, education and opportunities it has provided for me. I hope that the class of 2020 continues to move forward with a positive attitude.”
Post said she hopes her classmates will be mindful of the words of the Book of Isaiah, Chapter 40, verse 31: “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings as of eagles. They shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint.”
“Remember,” she added, “hard work will be rewarded. And always follow your dreams!”
