Whale Branch High senior earns TCL award

Whale Branch Early College High School senior Ariana Davis was named the 2012 Young Achiever by the Technical College of the Lowcountry on Friday.

Davis is one of two Whale Branch seniors set to graduate with both a diploma from the high school and an associate degree from TCL. The other is Tanasia Hamilton.

Davis ranks third in her class and maintains a 4.2 GPA. She's a member of the National Honor Society. She is a youth usher and a member of the youth chorus at Lady's Island Baptist Church.

Davis and Hamilton were both recognized at a ceremony Friday at TCL for being associate-degree candidates. In addition, seven other Whale Branch seniors were recognized for completing significant college-level course work at TCL. They are Quandaireal Blue, Adrian Byam, Blakely Fields, Cameron Fletcher, Trey Polite, Vanessa Scott and Tinisha Williams.

In December, TCL also awarded Fletcher a Certificate in Applied Science.
