The Southern Lee High School community, the AVID family, and the entire Lee County district is so proud of senior Addie Gonzalez. Last year Addie won a national contest for AVID and spoke to an audience of over 2,500 educators at the AVID Philadelphia Summer Institute. This year, Addie has "done it again" by winning the prestigious Golden Door Scholarship! By winning this scholarship Addie now has a free full ride for four years to any private college/university in the tri-state area or she can take $100,000 for out of state. She has decided to stay in the tri-state area and has narrowed it down to Davidson, Duke, Wake Forest, or High Point. She is also looking into a few schools in Virginia. Wherever she is accepted and chooses to be her "best fit," she now has the money to finance it! This poised young woman is just one example of what happens when you are determined to succeed! We would be wise to follow Addie's closing quote by Edmund Lee from her AVID speech: "Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and the thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see greatness within you!"
