OUTSTANDING SENIORS: Andrew Phillips and Adam Phillips
Twin brothers Andrew and Adam Phillips stick together. Not only will they take the stage at graduation as co-valedictorians of North Gaston High School's Class of 2015, both are heading to N.C. State University in the fall.
Together, the brothers achieved perfect attendance records, among just seven Gaston County Schools graduates to earn the honor this year. At North Gaston High School, the Phillips brothers volunteered together and served as officers in the Beta Club. They were Junior Marshals, National Honor Society students and AP (Advanced Placement) Scholars. They also worked together to establish two clubs at North Gaston -- the mathematics club and the CyberDroids/CyberDrones club to study robotics and programming.
Once they arrive on the N.C. State campus this fall, however, the brothers will take separate paths. Andrew Phillips, who earned the university’s Chancellor’s Leadership Scholarship, will major in chemistry. He then intends to go to law school and become an environmental lawyer. Adam Phillips will major in physics with a possible double major in electrical engineering. He is hoping for a job at NASA after earning his college degree.
Congratulations, Andrew Phillips and Adam Phillips -- outstanding seniors in the Gaston County Schools Class of 2015!
