My name is Leah Curren and I am the daughter of Don and Karla Long. I graduated school at Jayton-Girard ISD and am attending Texas Tech University in the fall of 2013 to pursue a degree in Animal Science through Tech's Pre-Veterinary program.
I am The Valedictorian of my class and president of my school's NHS chapter and FFA chapter. I participate in Cross-Country, Basketball, Track and Field. One Act Play, and UIL. Student Council, I have to say, is the most rewarding as we take trips throughout the year to visit and serve food to senior members of our community.
I've received numerous awards and honors during my high school career but none can compare to how I felt when I received my 6th place stat FFA banner for Extemporaneous Speaking. Public Speaking has never been a strong suit for me, but through hard work, I conquered my fear.
