Katelyn is a high school student at South Carolina Connections Academy (SCCA). She lives in Lancaster, South Carolina with her family. Katelyn's sisters Allison , Kristin, and Melissa are all graduates of SCCA. Katelyn is grateful for SCCA’s flexible scheduling that gives her more time for enjoyable activities. She shares her story below:
'I love SCCA because it is flexible and the teachers make it fun. The flexible schedule offered through this program allows me to have free time to do what I like to do and to work on my own schedule each day. Being able to plan my own day and get a break when I want is my favorite part of SCCA. My favorite subjects are math and Gifted and Talented Literature Study with Mrs. Cates.'
When she’s not busy with schoolwork, Katelyn enjoys playing mandolin and being the lead vocalist in her band, The Hinson Girls. In the future, she wants to perform bluegrass and country music for family and friends.
