Lewisville Student Aims to Affect Lives
Southmayd, Rachel. The Herald

Student Spotlight
Name: Tyesha McCrorey
Class: Senior
Activities: Volleyball, Softball, Junior Civitan, Senior Class President

     In just a few weeks, Tyesha McCrorey will start her very last year at Lewisville High School. And as a senior, and senior class president, McCrorey said she's determined to make every experience count, and she wants her fellow seniors to do the same. It was one of the main reasons that she wanted to be class president. "I want to do more things as a class because this is the last time we're going to be together," she said. "I want us to be more active in school."
     McCrorey said she's known at Lewisville for being friends with lots of different people in her school, no matter what race or gender they are or what background they have. She wishes her peers would branch outside their comfort zone to get to know more people, too.
     Being a high school student now is harder than it's ever been before, McCrorey said. With bullying at new heights with cyber bullying and media influences, it's not an easy time for either her or her peers. "We don't try as hard to be like the people we see on TV", she said.
     Shows like those on MTV, such as "Teen Mom", and others don't teach teens how to be mature or responsible or to seek a better life. While she knows the shows entertain a lot of people, she wants her classmates to strive for their diploma and plan a future for themselves. Even of they don't go to college, McCrorey said she hopes everyone is making steps towards building a better future for themselves. 
     For McCrorey, that better life is going to come through attending USC-Upstate and majoring in nursing. She hopes to become a neonatal nurse and to help babies have a good start at life.  Part of this desire is inspired by her three nephews, all under the age of six. The two oldest refer to her as their friend, not their aunt. "They have a great life," McCrorey said. "Some babies won't."  But as a nurse, she can at least help get babies started towards a good life.    
    Affecting lives is something that McCrorey is going to focus on in her last year of high school. She said she's looking forward to building on old friendships and starting new ones. 
    Having lots of friends who are important to you is good because you never know when you're going to need someone and you never know how you can impact someone's life, she said.
